Fort York sits well at the top of many history lovers' sightseeing lists. Established in 1793, it's the most historic site in Toronto, having protected the city from the end of the 18th century right up through the end of World War II. Today, you can tour the soldiers' and officers' quarters, witness cannon firings and military drills and participate in flag raisings.
Located along the western end of the Harbourfront district, Fort York is open throughout the year from 10 a.m. to around 4:30 or 5 p.m., depending on the season. General admission ranges from $9 CAD for adults to $3 CAD for younger children (about $9 and $3 USD). For more information, check out the fort's website.
