What to do in Toronto

Chinatown

Exploring Toronto’s Chinatown is a fascinating experience for the whole family. The district goes back to the 19th century and is today one of the North America’s largest chinatowns. You’ll appreciate all the exoticism of Oriental culture through the appetizing cuisine of the neighbourhood’s restaurants.

 

Entertainment District

There are a multitude of theatres and art galleries in the heart of Toronto’s Entertainment District, which is concentrated around King Street West and University and Spadina avenues. The district also boasts a wide selection of restaurants, pubs and trendy bars. There’s nothing quite like seeing your favourite international artist perform in one of Toronto’s venerable venues.

 

Toronto Islands

Facing downtown, the Toronto Islands are an archipelago of 15 small Lake Ontario islands. Centre Island has an amusement park and gardens for the enjoyment of picnic-goers, strollers and cyclists. If you feel like a cool dip, you can choose from three magnificent beaches that offer a superb view of the city.

 

Distillery District

Small streets paved with red brick and recently restored Victorian architecture mean you’re probably in the historic Distillery District. This is one of Toronto’s most popular tourist attractions – which isn’t surprising given the impressive number of art galleries, designer shops, cafés and fashionable restaurants.

 

High Park

High Park is Toronto’s largest public park. For a stroll with your better half, a family picnic, or trying out your new bike, there’s no place quite like it. The park offers all the sports venues you could possibly want, games for the kids, a lake, a dog run, a zoo, greenhouses and restaurants.
