Oh wow! So many options, whether you've been here before or not.

There's the Art Gallery of OntarioRoyal Ontario MuseumCN TowerRipley's Aquarium of CanadaDistillery DistrictChinatown, and Casa Loma.

West Queen Street West was just named the 2nd hippest neighborhood in the world. Along the street you'll find Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art (MOCCA), great shops and cafes, The Drake Hotel and Gladstone Hotel.

If you're a sports fan, there's the Hockey Hall of Fame and the Rogers Centre or even the Air Canada Centre (for sports or concerts).

There are a whole host of green spaces like High Park giving Toronto its unofficial nickname of a city within a park.

And then there's the FOOD! There are so many tasty restaurants. You can pretty much find anything you're looking for.

I'll stop there but if you have any questions, I'm happy to help.

Toronto is an incredible city. It’s vibrant, livable and constantly changing. Hope you enjoy your time here!

"Must see" sites for tourists

  • CN Tower - Take a ride up the elevator (or if you're feeling ambitious, a trek up the stairs) and enjoy the 360-degree views of our beautiful city. I don't personally recommend the (overpriced) restaurant, but could stop in for drinks.  The adventurous can try the EdgeWalk where you are harnessed in for a hands-free walk along the perimeter of the main pod (about 1200 feet off the ground).  
  • Niagara Falls- easy day trip as it's only ~1.5 hrs away


Those aside,


Hope that helps!

Depends on your interests! Do you like food, art, sports, history? There is something for everyone and is one of the most multicultural cities in the world. 

The best way to describe Toronto is a collection of neighbourhoods with something for everyone. Some mainstay staples are the Distillery District where you can walk around visit galleries and cafes, see the historic buildings and you're right close to everything downtown. 

If you like shopping Eaton Centre is our largest mall, and across the street is Yonge-Dundas Square where big outdoors events and concerts are held (Toronto's version of NY's Time Square) 

If you're a fan of culture hit up Queen Street Westfrom University Ave to Roncesvalles Ave it's a long strip but you'll find parks, boutiques, book stores, galleries, street art, restos - one of the best areas the city has to offer.

For nature lovers Toronto is it - one of the greenest cities I've been too there are endless parks, rivers and green spaces with the largest High Park taking up multiple city blocks it has trails, a lake, a petting zoo, cafe, outdoor theatre and landscaped gardens. Along the same lines is Casa Loma a castle in the heart of the city which is gorgeous. 

With an endless supply of museums and galleries the two big ones are Art Gallery of Ontario which is not to be missed and the Royal Ontario Museum both stunning and personal favourites as a local. 

Skip the CN Tower, it's expensive and touristy but if you're around when the weather is nice take a ferry to the Toronto Islands, 10 mins from downtown but feels like a separate world with beaches, cottages, and a whole different vibe. 

You'll never be hungry as Toronto is a food destination! Find a cuisine - from pretty much anywhere in the world - and there is a neighbourhood where you can find it! BlogTO.com is a great resource for visitors but mom & pop shops are what give this city soul. If you're looking for a great night out I usually recommend David Chang's Momofuku Shōtō restaurant in Toronto as well as his a noodle bar, bakery, large format restaurant and bar.

Sassafraz RestaurantRecommended to me by a local foodie, this spot is a long-time favourite.  Service was lovely and kind, and the food pairings were delicious!

Sotto Sotto Restaurant This is one of my go-to spots if I want to treat clients, new customers (or myself!) to a special evening.  A long time haunt of celebrities, this grotto-like restaurant is outstanding.  I usually order a pasta dish with whatever mushrooms they have in stock.  Delicious.  The wine list is top shelf, as you might expect.

 I would recommend booking in advance.  There's rarely an open table on any given night in this cozy spot.
