Start your Toronto holiday by visiting the CN Tower to get a breathtaking view from the tallest free-standing structure in the Americas; the tower is also the city’s most distinctive landmark. From there you can use SkyWalk to go to SkyDome (now known as Rogers Centre), the home stadium of the Toronto Blue Jays professional baseball team. No sports fan can resist the Hockey Hall of Fame, which is dedicated to ice hockey highlights; see the players, teams, National Hockey League (NHL) records, and trophies (including the Stanley Cup) through the years.

Grab the chance to see your favourite film stars at the Toronto International Film Festival held in posh Yorkville; the neighbourhood is also filled with hotels, movie theatres, and restaurants. Drop by the Toronto Eaton Centre, the most popular shopping destination in the city, which registers more than 50 million visitors annually. For an urban safari, go to Toronto Zoo, one of the world’s largest zoos; it's home to over 5,000 animals representing 460 distinct species.

For art lovers, recommended museums include Gardiner Museum, with more than 2,900 ceramic artefacts from Asia, the Americas, and Europe; if you're a rebel or a hippie, head to Kensington Market, a multicultural neighbourhood with its own cannabis cafés and boutiques, as well as numerous dance parties.

Don't miss Taste of Danforth, a yearly celebration of Greek food and culture, as well as other ethnic cuisines, for 3 days in August. The festival is held in Toronto’s GreekTown along Danforth Avenue.
