Nevermind, going on a holiday to Toronto, but I’ve lived there for about 2 years. For the next few lines in this blog I’ll be your guide to the top 10 things you must view and do in this city. I will be counting down.
10. Breakfast at Frans – this place is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You’ll get the top menu in the city for breakfast. If you are a vegetarian…well then guess what? the variety of options in this place is plenty.
Fran’s deck has been established in the 1940’s by Francis Deck and have been around for a about 70 years. It is situated in Yonge and St Claire streets. It’s their tradition to serve the best food in town.
9. Canon Theatre – is ranked 3rd best in the English speaking world and has staged the world premier of The Lord of the rings. If you are an arty farty type who loves the drama theatre, this is for you.
8. Walk the path – an underground 27km walkway path leading from one subway terminal to another. Ranging from shopping malls, food courts to atrium underneath streets of Toronto. This underground shopping network is the largest path in the world. Starting from CN Tower stretching its path alongside Yonge street to Eaton centre, in downtown Toronto.
7. Gerrard street – A mini Indian town that links china town which is a few blocks away. Must try out the spicy roasted sweet corn. Best quality fruits and vegetables can be found there in the markets.
6. Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) – the largest and most diverse museum in the world. The musuem hosts many different world cultures and natural history exhibits containing over 6 million items in 40 different galleries.
5. In the winter ice skating is popular with both locals and tourists. Nathan Philips square is the no.1 ice skating landmark situated in front of city hall. It is open 24 hours a day November to March.
4. Wonderland is a small scaled to Disney land with fun rides and entertainment for the whole family.
3. IMAX theatre – Experincing the real sound in a theatrical environment. IMAX was originated in Canada.
2. Go shopping at Eaton centre – A large shopping mall, over 250 stores and restaurants including Abercrombie & Fitch, Levis, Apple and the largest Sears department in the world.
1. CN Tower – Oh how can I miss this- this is the number one thing to do in Toronto. This tower is in every post card, any travel magazine and photo albums of the city. It was originally built in 1976 and it was intended to broadcast antenna for radio and television.
It includes a glass floor, glass elevator, reservation decks and a revolving restaurant. It has a new activity similar to abseiling but this is called CN tower edge walk. It is the tallest free standing tower according to Guinness world record. It has the 2nd highest public onservation deck. During the day if the skies are clear with good weather conditions, one can see as far as Niagara Falls and the USA. This tower gives a beauty to the city as a whole.
