What are the must see/do things in Toronto?

Asked by patg7590 (4603 points ) August 12th, 2010

My wife and I are going to Toronto for our 1st wedding anniversary and to see Arcade Fire play at Olympic Island. We are going to arrive Friday around 5/6 and leave sometime Sunday. We are staying at the Metropolitan Hotel downtown. (Hope it’s a good place!) We have never been to Toronto before, what are some things we should make sure not to miss? We are definitely on a budget so keep that in mind too if you please.

Thanks Jellies!

Definetely check out the CN Tower and Dundas Square. The CN Tower is just beautiful and there’s always some sort of even in dundas square, and it’s even close the the very popular Eaton Centre where you can shop. Have fun!

The St. Lawrence Market in the historic district is great and would be a good place to pick up a picnic lunch, which you could eat along the waterfront.

The Royal Ontario Museum is one of the world’s best.

You will be there during the annual Canada National Exhibition, which is the largest exhibition anywhere.

@marinelife Wow that sounds really sweet! We will definately have to check into those. Although it looks like we will miss “The Ex” :/ (the site says it starts the 20th)

I went to Toronto many years ago and loved it. Definitely the CN Tower There’s a restaurant up there with a nice view and if you have the nerve, a glass floor to walk on and see everything below. That cured me of my fear of heights.

We also spent a lot of time at Ontario Place, which is an amusement park on the lake shore.

There’s also a really huge bookshop in Toronto, the biggest I’ve ever seen. Unfortunately I can’t remember the name of it, or what street it’s on.

Do try to take a trip out to Niagara Falls as well. That was the most amazing thing I have ever seen. I went on the Maid of the Mist and it was just mindblowingly awesome.
