TORONTO ATTRACTIONS

 

 While there are many more attractions in Toronto than you can count on one hand, we have listed a few for you to get you started.  Check here to see a broadened list of what Toronto has to offer.

 

 

Toronto's Air Canada Centre is a state-of-the-art sports and entertainment facility.  The ACC, as it is commonly known, is home to the NHL's Toronto Maple Leafs, the NBA's Toronto Raptors and the Toronto Rock of the National Lacrosse League.  In addition to housing professional sports teams, the ACC hosts some of the biggest events that happen in the city, including major concerts and shows.  It is located in the heart of downtown Toronto, just steps from Union Station.

 

Founded in 1900 by a group of private citizens, the Art Gallery of Ontario is now one of the ten largest museums in North America.  The AGO currently has more than 40,000 works in its collection, documenting over 2100 years of human creativity.  It also houses major traveling exhibits from around the world.
Canada's Wonderland is Canada's premier theme park.  It features over 200 attractions, including 65 rides, exciting live events, a 20-acre water park and North America's greatest variety of coasters.  Located off Highway 400 north of Toronto, it offers plenty of options for thrill-seekers and families alike.
Built by Sir Henry Mill Pellatt during 1911-1914 this "house on the hill' was meant to be a place of social gathering.  After going bankrupt in 1924 and being forced to move, his wish for the place was re-awakened after being opened to the public by the Kiwanis Club in 1937.  The City of Toronto now owns Casa Loma although it is still open to the public for viewing and hosts numerous social events every year.
Centreville Amusement Park is located on the islands in Lake Ontario just south of Toronto's city centre.  Ferries from the mainland shuttle visitors across Toronto Harbour to the islands every 15 minutes.  Stroll around and admire the view from over 600 acres of parkland, or take advantage of over 30 rides, attractions and a long list of food outlets.  
Defining the Toronto skyline, the CN Tower is Canada's most recognizable and celebrated icon.  At a height of 533.33m (1,815ft., 5in), it is one of the World's tallest buildings, an important telecommunications hub, and the centre of tourism in Toronto.  Each year, approximately 2 million people visit the CN Tower to take in the breath-taking view and enjoy all the attractions it has to offer.
The CNE is the largest annual fair in Canada and one of the most cherished Toronto traditions since 1879.  Every summer during the second half of August it takes place by the shores of Lake Ontario just west of the downtown core.  Always a favourite family activity, it features all kinds of games, rides, shows, special events, demonstrations, performances, food and shopping.

 

Historic Fort York was the location of the Battle of York during the War of 1812.  It is very well-preserved and now offers a fascinating re-creation of what a soldiers life would have been like 200 years ago.  It is designated as a National Historical site, and offers tours and full-costume demonstrations that take visitors back to a time when Toronto was in its infancy.

 

Toronto's popular High Park is also Toronto's largest public park.  Home to hiking trails, playgrounds, dog parks and much more, everyone will find something they enjoy.  Visit http://www.highparktoronto.com/ to find a copy of the park map.
After several attempts to open the Hockey Hall of Fame, the official opening occurred in 1961.  In 1993, the move to the current location saw 500,000 guests in the first year.  For more information go to https://www.hhof.com/.

 

The Ontario Science Centre pioneered the concept of interactive science museums, and has attracted 37 million visitors since opening on September 27, 1969.  A favourite of students of all ages, it has displayed a wide variety of fascinating exhibits covering all branches of science as well as explorations of behavior, technology and the universe.  While also playing host to many international exhibits, the Centre is a leading developer of interactive exhibitions for science centres around the world.  

 

After two years of building, the aquarium opened in 2013.  There are nine galleries, including one for our local Canadian critters.  This is a great spot for a fun day out with the family or to host children's birthday parties.
Rogers Centre (formerly SkyDome) was the world's first multi-purpose retractable domed stadium.  Crouched beside the CN Tower, its round silhouette forms an unmistakable part of the Toronto skyline.  Located miniutes from Union Station in downtown Toronto, Rogers Centre is home to the Toronto Blue Jays baseball team and the CFL's Toronto Argonauts.  The venue also plays host to large concerts, trade shows and other major events. 
The ROM contains Canada's largest museum collections with more than five million objects.  The collections grow by approximately 67,000 items each year, reflecting the Museum's diverse interests.  The collections are extraordinary in their scientific value, territorial and disciplinary range, and contain matchless artifacts of importance. 
From antiques to bakers and butchers, St. Lawrence Market has a wide selection for everyone.  Check their website for hours of operation.
