Toronto at a Glance

Walking along Lake Ontario, cheering on a Maple Leaf hockey game or getting a steaming plate of your favorite ethnic food are just some of the activities you can enjoy while visiting bustling Toronto. 

Canada's most populated city is buzzing with things to see and do. Take in the views of Lake Ontario from a viewpoint on Scarborough Bluffs, stop in at the Inuit Art Museum, stock up on picnic food at the St. Lawrence Market and ride up to the top of Toronto's iconic CN Tower.  

If winter sports are your passion, don't let Toronto's famously cold and windy winter stop you from coming out for a visit. Enjoy watching hockey games then take yourself out for a ski along one of Toronto's now snowy summer bike trails. To warm up, head underground to the PATH network where the sheer number of shops, bars and entertainment options mean you don't have to come out until spring if you don't want to.
