How to spend a weekend in Toronto

Feb 27, 15 How to spend a weekend in Toronto

Toronto is a great city to live and a fun place to visit, but if you only have the weekend available for a city break, then you might have some trouble fitting all the attraction into three days. Here are some ways that can help you save time and some tips and tricks that will help you decide which local attractions are a must see and which can wait until your next visit. But first, here is an essential piece of advice for those who don’t want to be rushed when travelling in a hurry: book the best Toronto limousine service instead of getting by with public transport. Hopping on and off buses and subways can be a bit hectic, especially in a city as big as Toronto and by the time you arrive at the best museums and landmarks, you might be too tired to enjoy them. However, by travelling by limo, you will be able to enjoy some peace and quiet, have time to look for other attractions and, briefly, to relax.

 

If there’s one sport that Canada is famous for, that will definitely be hockey, so you should start your trip with the Hockey hall of Fame, a fantastic place with great hockey exhibits and plenty of things to do. You will have the chance to learn more about the history of hockey in Canada and, if you travel with kids, they’ll have fun too! If hockey is not your thing and you’d rather look for cultural attractions, then definitely check out the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO). Visiting it won’t take more than one or two hours and not only will you see amazing artworks, but also enjoy the architecture of the majestic building, which was renovated in 2008. Of course, you have to stop by the CN Tower, which is already known as a symbol of the city. You’re brave enough to climb all the way to the top, you’ll definitely love the Toronto skyline. While you’re there, you can have dinner in one of the fancy restaurants and even go shopping. Even though Toronto is mainly a modern city, that doesn’t mean fans of medieval architecture won’t find charming attractions. For example, the Casa Loma is a beautiful building with mysterious underground passages and secret tunnels that will take your breath away.

 

Every major city has a noteworthy park and for Toronto is the High Park. Here, you can spend several hours looking at the animals, going on hikes and taking at walk inside the greenhouse. This park offers several activities as well, so if you are with children, ask about hiking and baseball. Last, but not least, it would be a pity to leave Toronto without walking its streets and taking in the vibe of the city. Forget about Chinatown and try the picturesque Kensington Market. Its quirky shops and restaurants will give you plenty of things to do and you will also get an idea about the lifestyle of the Toronto community. If you’re lucky, you might even get to see a festival while you’re there!
