    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.

    I enjoyed getting lost in the numerous cultures the ROM had on display. It was like going back in time. Every culture had a variety of art to observe. If you love history and learning about different cultures, consider visiting the ROM!

    Casa Loma is real cool to see the inside was very cool too bad some of it is closed for commercial use. The tunnel was a little dark to see the dark side of Toronto but was overall a good day.

    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.

    Spend there all afternoon. Surprisingly good collection, especially paintings including Canadian impressionists. Strange use of third language for explanation (which only a small percentage of Canadian indigenous people speak.

    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.

    Firstly, it took us ages to find the actual main entrance, signage could be better. On ticket prices; on many museums, etc, in Canada there is a concession for disabled visitors but not here. However, my son, who is mad on hockey loved the visit, I was a little more lukewarm. It was interesting to see the Stanley cup, etc, but for me it was just masses of kit and trophies, but what did I expect? He also enjoyed the interactive games, especially being in goal. There is a large shop on the exit to the museum. So as I said in my title, good if you like ice hocky!

    Lovely quiet park just a short subway ride away from the city centre. We had a lovely walk around the park, past the Hillside Gardens, lake, duck ponds & animal enclosures. We enjoyed seeing lots of wildlife including chipmonks & some huge butterflies, & rounded it off with an ice cream at the Grenadier Restaurant.

    A beautiful place to see. Not much else to do in the area so if you are here definitely stop in. The gift shop is not located here.

    I would highly recommend this zoo. It is well laid out and has a wide array of animals. The surrounding woods are beautiful lending to a peaceful, almost meditative experience. This place is also huge, so be prepared to walk a lot, on both flat terrain and inclines.

    Really big shopping centre in the middle.of Toronto. Easy access and all.the stops you can think of. Ends in Dundas Square which is a must you don't want to miss.
    Also has an entrance to the Path though we couldn't find it.

    The University of Toronto is located in the Downtown area and is very grand indeed. There are lots of really beautiful buildings to admire and you do not need to pay to walk round the oiet utside.

    It is a very nice area and we visited at the weekend so it was fairly quiet too.

    We visited in the evening, as the Toronto sign is lit then - lovely for photos. At the bottom of the middle concrete arch is a piece of the old Berlin wall.
