From Niagara Falls to the CN Tower, discover Toronto’s many sides and sites
Located on the shores of Lake Ontario, Toronto is not only Ontario’s capital; it’s also the commercial and entertainment capital of Canada. The lively city is home to a number of nationally and internationally significant historical and cultural institutions, including the Toronto Science Centre, the stunning Casa Loma, and The Royal Ontario Museum. Toronto also offers very convenient access to Niagara Falls, a most impressive natural marvel, making it a dream destination for tourists from around the world.
Breath-taking views of Niagara Falls
One of Ontario’s most famous and must-see destinations is the stunning Niagara Falls. Located approximately 130 km away from Toronto city, this amazing natural wonder is well worth the trip: There are underground walkways leading into observation rooms to explore; the famous Maid of the Mist boat cruise takes tourists into the rapids immediately below the falls; and the observation deck of the nearby Skylon Tower offers a spectacular bird’s-eye view of the entire area.
Incredible architecture and history in the heart of Toronto
In downtown Toronto, the CN Tower provides a beautiful view of a totally different kind. One of the tallest towers in the world, it draws in more than two million international visitors per year.
Not far from the tower is another one of Toronto’s many places to visit: the Distillery District, a historically rich entertainment precinct that was designated a National Historic Site of Canada in 1988. It is home to North America’s largest collection of Victorian-era buildings, and serves not only as a cultural hub, but also as a go-to spot for boutiques, unique cafes and award-winning restaurants.
Tourists visiting Toronto who are looking to soak in some art, science, culture and history can stop by the Ontario Science Centre for any one of their fascinating exhibits around geology, nature, astronomy and more; the Royal Ontario Museum and its beautifully curated collections; the Hockey Hall of Fame, sure to delight sports fans of all ages; and the Casa Loma, a Gothic Revival-style house whose elegant architecture and splendid grounds transport visitors to a different time.
