Best Things To Do in Toronto

To get the lay of the land, catch a bird's-eye view from one of the four observation decks at the CN Tower. From there, get a taste for authentic Toronto by sampling some hometown brews in the historic Distillery District or the take in a concert at Ontario Place. When it comes to keeping the kids entertained, Toronto's got it covered; numerous attractions like the Toronto Zoo and the Ontario Science Centre are sure to keep the youngsters in good spirits. To get the most out of your trip, consider buying a CityPass for reduced admission to five of the city's top sites. That also means no waiting in line for tickets.
