What is unique to Toronto in terms of North America?

My internet search let me down. Sad. So what special things to Toronto must I eat and do? Day trips are ok too. I'm not excited to go so it would help to get some ideas.

    Depends on the time of year you'll be visiting but one of the most unique things (and a favourite of locals) is the Toronto Islands. From the heart of downtown you can take a ferry across to the islands and feel a world away with sandy beaches, bike trails and green parks all with the Toronto skyline a stones throw away. One of the greatest things about Toronto is it's multi-culturalism and the fact that the whole city is a collection of neighbourhoods. Each neighbourhood is like a special pocket with unique things to offer and there is something for everyone in this city. I'd recommend reading up on places to figure out what would suit your interests whether it's Queen Street West The Annex Little Italy or The Danforth. The most exciting thing about this city is exploring the different areas and coming across your favourite things.

    Hey Shelley,


    I understand completly why you are not that excited to go to Toronto. Its fame doesn't come along.

    I have travelled there a couple of times and what I can tell you about Toronto, is that is great !

    One of the most cosmopolite cities you will visit (as most of Canada, I guess). Indeed, you will have the chance to eat food from all around the world, without going to all those places. The diversity is unbelievable. Don't seek a canadian traditional restaurant, there is not or I did not have the chance to find one.

    The most famous food there is the poutine dressing on fries. Some love it, I really did not get it.

    You also have some great places to shop, not only cheap and popular like all the stores you will find in this enormous mall Eaton Centre but trendy and unique pieces like in Distillery District, Yorkville, Queen Street West, Little Italy.

    There is a nice museum Royal Ontario Museum. There are good theaters and programation, the university is really huge and beautiful, good way to remember all the movies filmed in that campus, such as Hulk.

    Without forgetting the Niagara Falls, obviously.

    Toronto has also some great parks that make it nicer.

    Last but not least, my favorite thing to do there is going to the St. Lawrence Market. Best place in town for a meat balls sandwich and other delights from all the world ...


    Enjoy !

    You might be surprised !
