A Trip So Good You Won't Want To Leaf

If you’ve never been to Canada before, it’s easy to underestimate the vacation potential of the country. If you’re willing to brave the cold, however, a trip to Toronto can be one of the most fulfilling and deserves a place on your bucket list. The culture, the sights, the places you can go, it easily ranks as one of the best cities in North America. So, what are some of the must-see parts of Toronto?Picture by John Vetterli

The best times to go
In general, you might think you want to skip Winter trips because, indeed, Canada gets it rough. But the truth is that it might be worth braving for some of the best events of the whole year. The Toronto Light Fest makes a gorgeous show of the city’s historic Distillery District, for one. But any time is just as good as the other. There’s always something happening, from the Scotiabank Contact Photography Festival for the artistic minded to the Mississauga Waterfront Festival bringing family friendly fun including concerts, a carnival, and a petting zoo.

The best view of the city
Of course, you can’t talk about Toronto without looking at that skyline. The CN Tower is easily the most recognisable part of the city and offers views you’re not likely to get as easily anywhere else. It’s highly accessible to the public and it even has a restaurant up there for those who want to dine with a great view.

The best place to eat

If you’re a foodie, the CN Tower might be great for a view, but it’s not the best place to get food in the city. That honour belongs to Kensington Market. As quirky and diverse as it is popular, there are spots for all sorts of cuisines. Not too far from the market is a Michelin Star winning sushi place, as well.

The best views outside the city
We can wax poetic about the city for ages, but one of the biggest mistakes is failing to leave the cities when you visit. Just make sure you have your ID and all your travel papers with you. Contact the Canada eta website to see what you need because the friendly, easy-going Canadian attitude falls away pretty quickly otherwise. From Toronto, it’s only a day trip away to some of the most gorgeous sights in the whole country, including Niagara Falls and Blue Mountain.

The best Canadian castle
We’ll finish looking at one of the lesser spotted gems of the city. When you think of castles, you primarily think of Europe, but Toronto has its own expansive, stately version. Casa Loma is no fake castle, either, with an imposing tower, gorgeous gardens and a wine cellar of almost 1800 bottles of vintages you’d be lucky to even get a whiff of.

Toronto has something for everyone, from history buffs to foodies to people who just want a gorgeous view. Just make sure you’re packing warm. It might have its mild months, but you’re not likely to spend any time in Canada without encountering some Canadian weather.
