There are a lot of things to see and do in Toronto. In a city of nearly 3 million people there is a huge variety in neighborhoods, events, and activities. This has led to some of the most unique architecture on many famous buildings and attractions, and all of them offer a great experience for your next visit. Whether you’re looking for a cultural diversion or an amazing shopping experience, you can find it in the unique buildings of Toronto.
The original museum was built back in 1910 with something of a Romanesque feel, but the new addition is all about deconstructivist crystal. The steel and glass structure jutting out at unbelievable angles is a wondrous exhibit all on its own, but on the inside it still houses Canada’s largest collection of world cultures and natural history. From dinosaurs and ancient Egypt to live animal shows and the world’s largest totem pole, you will see many amazing things as soon as you walk inside this incredible structure.
If you’re looking for a more casual experience – but one that is still unique to Toronto – Mirvish Village may be the place to go. This neighborhood features a line of strangely colorful and cute homes, restaurants and boutique shops. Just wandering down the street can make you feel like you’ve stepped into a whole different town, if not a different time. You can find a range of unique products in the shops or enjoy some of the events that sometimes take place around here.
Of all the Toronto tourist attractions, this one is likely the most famous. The CN Tower was classified as one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World, and if you want to add some excitement to your trip you can head up to the Look Out Level at 1,136 feet in the air or stare straight down at the ground from the Glass Floor 1,122 feet up. There are a lot of things to do here, and you shouldn’t miss it.
Running beneath the financial/business district of the city is 28 kilometers of stores, restaurants, and much, much more. When you visit Toronto, one of your stops should be this maze of tunnels that houses hundreds of stores, connects more than 50 above-ground buildings, and has at least five subway stations and a couple parking garages. It’s like visiting an entire underground city. You could start on one end of the PATH for breakfast and still have to hop the subway to see the other side by the end of the day.
