    The CN Tower in Toronto is an iconic landmark and a popular tourist attraction. It is one of the tallest freestanding structures in the world and has become a symbol of the city. The tower offers stunning panoramic views of Toronto and the surrounding area from its observation decks, which are located at different heights. With that said, it was an amazing experience. We bought tickets at the venue and waited in line for about 30 to 45 minutes. The views were amazing, and food and drinks are available when you get to the observation tower. They do a great job of getting people in and out of the elevators. They take pictures, but I didn't like the way my picture turned out, so I didn't buy it. I remember the price being pretty expensive.

    It is possible to walk the full length of the Islands, however, a bicycle is highly recommended for getting around more quickly. This enables one to explore the 3 main islands: Ward Island with its quaint and picturesque residences, Centre Island which is the entertainment hub and Hanlon Island, known for being natural. One can also bike across the connecting bridges to some of the smaller islands. There is something for everyone - stunning iconic views of the Toronto skyline, beaches, Centreville Amusement Park, boating, picnic areas, historic lighthouse, to name a few. Also cafes and restaurants, toilets and bike rental. We rented our bikes on the mainland and took them across on the ferry. This allowed us to explore further once we returned to the mainland, before handing our bikes back.

    Very beautiful and well-done/well-kept aquarium with an amazing variety of fish! You get amazing views and get to have sharks swim right over top of you. My favorite part may have been the jellyfish! Big crowds, especially with school trips, but it’s worth it if you’re patient and take your time with this.

    We highly recommend this! My husband and I shopped around the distillery district first during the Winter Festival. Really beautiful and lots of nice shops. Our tour was with David and he was very knowledgeable and did an excellent job! Everything was very interesting, and we were taken to areas we wouldn't have went to had we not done the tour. David was so kind and fun. Highly highly recommend !!! Worth your buck.

    My son and I booked a tour of the Steam Whistle brewery before heading to a Leafs game and it was a great decision! Our guide, Kenny, was so personable and entertaining, and walked us through the history of the company and the brewing process for their great tasting beer. You get a cold Steam Whistle beer for your tour, and I recommend coming a little earlier and having an 'unfiltered' pint to taste the difference. The tour really gave us a better appreciation of this true Canadian brand, and I highly recommend stopping in to say hi, have a pint and take a tour of the brewery in their historic home.

    It was really fun! We went to a Jays vs Yankees game so it was like very intense. In the last few minutes, we lost 2-0! Still a very good experience. I've been to 6 Jays games, but this was the most intense of all

    The game was good. We got front-row seats. They had minimum service. It was still a good and fun day for the family. We won 126-112

    We were here to see Hamilton. The theatre was quite nice, a great atmosphere for the production. The show itself was fantastic! We got tickets in the orchestra row L and had a great view of the stage. Our chairs were comfortable and the acoustics were very good.

    Quick, easy & cost effective trip to the islands. There wasn't much open on a week day in September, but we enjoyed a walk from Ward's Island along the boardwalk to Centre Island & Olympic Island & then out to Gibralter Point Lighthouse, returning back on the ferry from Centre Island.

    Your Lake Ontario sailing journey will start at here. This place is easy to navigate and clean. The access is convenient too.

    It had been some time since we last heard the TSO play, and Sunday afternoon's concert was a splendid reintroduction. The conductor was Tarmo Peltokoski, a 22-year-old (!) Filipino-Finnish maestro who gave an excellent and energetic account of himself. The first piece was a brief and rather dreamy piece by Kaija Saariaho. This was followed by a spirited rendition of the Brahms Violin Concerto, with the TSO's concert master Jonathan Crow as the soloist. He performed splendidly, as did the orchestra. The post-intermission work was Shostakovich's 5th Symphony, which was suitable noisy in places and highly listenable throughout. Well done, TSO!

    One of the good neighborhoods in Toronto. As the name suggests, the access to lake is provided. Great location for watching both the city skyline and the lake.

    We tried using Google Map to walk from Union Station to Graffiti Alley. Got lost and finally found the Graffiti Alley after more than 30 minutes. Too hungry so just ate a pad thai at a corner small restaurant. At first, felt a bit unsafe as some guys in the restaurant were gawking at us.

    I liked the Graffiti Alley for the colorful arts and definitely it is a place for good pictures. There were some tourists there so I would say it's pretty safe in daylight.

    After visiting for 20 minutes, we headed out to Queen Street, the main shopping belt in Toronto. It is easier walking to Graffiti Alley via the main road of Queen Street.
