Toronto Tourist Attractions

Toronto Tourist Attractions
Toronto, Ontario, is a great place for active families and individuals to visit. The city's Lake Ontario location ensures there are plenty of water activities, such as sailing, canoeing and windsurfing to keep you busy. Toronto even boasts a center for dragon boating, if you are eager to give that exotic sport a try. Toronto is also home of a number of excellent tourist attractions.

CN Tower

The tallest freestanding structure in the world is hard to miss. The tower can be seen from almost every spot in the city and is used as a guidepost by many tourists and locals.

The trip up the CN Tower in one of its glass-floored elevators is a must for everyone visiting the city. Once at the top, you can take in the awesome views, step onto a glass floor a quarter of a mile in the air, or step outside onto an outdoor terrace to see how different the weather actually is at that elevation. Order time and date stamped tickets online to avoid a wait for the elevator.

Casa Loma

Casa Loma is a European style castle built in the early 20th century by a financier for his wife. This impressive building sits atop a bluff overlooking the city. Like all good castles, Casa Loma includes a hidden passageway, secret underground escape tunnel, two turrets, and an expansive garden.

Most of the castle is free to explore, and special events take place throughout the year. Don't miss the stables, a magnificent sight in their own right.

Hockey Hall of Fame

Few things are more Canadian than hockey, and the Hockey Hall of Fame is a must see for visitors, regardless whether you follow the sport. The hall holds the world's largest collection of hockey memorabilia. Interactive exhibits let you try your hand at calling the play by play of famous games, seeing if you can stop a shot by Wayne Gretzky and trying your stick handling skills.

Don't leave before you walk upstairs to the Grand Hall to see and touch the Holy Grail of hockey, the Stanley Cup. See if you can find the typos engraved on this treasure.
