About Toronto

About TorontoBeautiful Toronto is a hotspot for travelers looking for a destination that has a little something for everyone from the outdoorsy ones to the city folk. The trick is knowing what to do before you do it. Here are a few pointers for a little bit of everything.

If you are planning a quick trip by plane, your best bet might be getting a hotel next to the airport. Otherwise, make sure to find a hotel in Toronto itself. Finding a hotel in the downtown area will guarantee a never-ending supply of things to do and places to visit, but with over 175 hotels in the area, the options are abundant.

Toronto offers taxi cab services, rent-a-car services, and shuttles. The city is cycler friendly and, of corse, easy routes are available for people who just want to see the city by foot.

Things to see:
Now that you know there are numerous opportunities for getting around, it’s time to find out what you are going to use them for. Toronto has quite a few things you’ll want to see before you leave.

Niagara Falls
This beautiful example of Mother Nature’s greatness is a must see when you are in the area. Just a 90 minute drive from the city, Niagara Falls offers the perfect destination for all. Three waterfalls in one results in the highest water flowing rate in the world…750,000 gallons of water per second tumbling over a cliff is a pretty amazing thing to see.

Toronto Zoo
Exotic wildlife roams here for your viewing pleasure. Toronto Zoo plays host to over 50,000 animals, including Gorillas, Polar bears, Elephants, Cheetahs, Kangaroos, even a Komodo dragon. Kids of all ages are going to love this one but everyone is sure to have a great time here.

The Ontario Science Center
Even if you don’t classify yourself as a science nerd…which most of us don’t…you’ll be surprised at how cool this place is. Just look around or watch a demonstration of what science can do with things such as electricity. At the end, you may also choose to watch a giant 3D-esque IMAX film.

Toronto offers a gigantic supply of theaters, parks, squares and gardens that are sure to please. Don’t pass up going to a show in one of the historic studios such as the Massey Hall or taking a stroll through places such Edwards Gardens. You can also tour museums, The Hockey Hall of Fame, Toronto University, Yorkville, The CN Tower and much more.
