A week in Toronto

Toronto being my favourite city is eden and windy. Being the hub of business and universities Toronto has mixed crowd and a lot of events. Best part about the city is Lake Ontario, sitting on the lake you realise that there is not a single thing the city is missing. The beauty of small island around the city and skyscrapers at the back confuses us whats the actual beauty of the city

The beautiful craftsmanship of monuments lies within the skyscrapers, you can see long buildings which is made of of gold and silver glasses and right next to it there will be a clock tower which is so vintage.img_2419

The unification of different culture is seen in Toronto as half the population of the city is from different countries of the world, which is the charm of the city as you can see a lot of different kind of people. Most of the skyscrapers are multinational companies or banks and on weekdays you will find a lot of corporate crowd, also there are lots of daily events that are held on the roads and near The Ontario Lake.

I would suggest you to check the forecast before you plan the trip (even summers are windy).

The best part about the city is its transit. Most convenient and hassle free transits. GO trains and buses run in and around the city which makes travelling for easy. There are monthly and weekly passes available for both of then. taxies are an expensive mode of transit about is also easly available. The trains take you to most of the city attraction but walking around the city is more fun!!img_2390

Get a city pass and big bus tour to make your holiday easier the city pass includes most of the tourist attraction such as:
CN tower
Casa Loma
Royal Ontario Museum
Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada
Toronto Zoo OR Ontario Science Center
(Book it online for great deals OR buy it from the CN Tower ticket window. Usually it costs 100$ per person).

CN Tower being the best attraction of the city gives the best view of the city ( I went at 5:30,so that I can see the day view, sunset and city lights at night) CN Tower also has a 360 restaurant which is an unforgettable experience of revolving view of Toronto. Also CN Tower has Edge walk which is 1,168 ft above the ground. (pre-book both if you are planning to visit).

Casa Loma is Toronto’s very own Castle and is located in the heart of the city. It was built as a residence of Sir Henry Mill Pellett, But now is converted into a museum and is very popular venue for weddings. Casa Loma is open for public. Beautiful gardens can be seen from most of the rooms and the outstanding artwork in all the rooms, vintage beds and furniture is charm of the castle. It has a connecting tunnel which connects to the garage. There is a cafe for visitors.

Royal Ontario Museum is museum of art but it also showcases clothing and interior of different cultures. It has sections of collection of dinosaurs, vintage art of Africa, East Asia, European and Canadian history, and gem and mineral collection. Its recently renovated and given a very contemporary look which attracts a lot of tourist. The design was first sketched on paper napkins.img_2832

Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada is located near CN Tower and is the biggest aquarium i have been too. It exhibits almost 13,500 exotic sea and freshwater specimens.

Rogers Center is also a very famous stadium which is also located near CN Tower. The stadium is used for a lot of games like Baseball, Basketball, Football, Soccer, etc. There are also a lot of Concerts that takes place in the stadium. The stadium can also be seen from the ferry that takes you to different inlands around the city and gives a beautiful view of the city skyline.
