Toronto Islands

Escape from the hustle and bustle of the city by getting away from it all and visiting the Toronto Islands.

Each island has its unique personality and experiences, from picnic areas and beaches to petting zoos and even a haunted lighthouse! This is an excellent opportunity to soak up the green space, take a relaxing bike ride, or simply a quiet stroll to soak up the surroundings. Even better, you only need to pay for the ferry ride to get there!

St Lawrence Market

Constructed in the 17th century, the St. Lawrence Market is located in the historic Old Town. Alongside City Hall, it has long been the beating heart of the social life of the city and is the perfect place to purchase anything from handmade jewelry to cured meats. The South Market alone offers 120 vendors, as well as cooking classes, art exhibitions, farmers markets, and a flea market for the ultimate bargains. With three main markets, you can shop to your heart’s content, and pick up a wealth of unusual gifts and objects to remember your trip.  For foodies, the St. Lawrence Market is a haven of incredible choice, with delicious foods, smells, recipes and ingredients from every side— it’s hard to leave still hungry! If you do though, don’t worry, you can order takeout straight to your hotel. Check out https://www.foodora.ca/city/toronto.

Toronto Zoo

Get back to nature, and up close and personal with some of the most majestic creatures on earth with a visit to the Toronto Zoo. It is one of the largest zoos in the world with over ten kilometres (six miles) of walking trails across a whopping 700-acre site. You are sure to see your favourite anime with over 5,000 to choose from representing over 450 species altogether. As well as the animals, there are also a variety of seasonal activities including a rope course, carousel, and Zoomobile Ride for a more relaxing way to explore the regions of the park.

Casa Loma

If history is your passion, Casa Loma needs to be on your Toronto bucket list. Built in the early 1900s by Sir Henry Pellatt, this achieved one former soldiers’ lifelong dream of building a castle which overlooked Toronto. It took almost three years to construct and cost over $3.5 million. Case Loma now stands as the only full-sized castle to remain in North Toronto, and even includes a secret passageway for that true castle vibe! Visitors also have the opportunity to explore five acres of gardens, fountains, and sculptures—a gorgeous view in the sunny weather.
