Known around the world as an alpha city, Toronto is a place that offers a plethora of beautiful locations, activities, and diverse cultural experiences that would suit any traveler; young student, backpacker, family, or solo traveler.  In Toronto, there is always something for everyone. EscapeWizard.com can offer you all the information and guidelines to the must-sees and must-dos of the city.  Toronto is the largest and vastest city in Canada.  It can be overwhelming, but Escape Wizard will help keep you on track, and we invite you to book your travels with us on your next vacation.

An absolute must when visiting the city is the CN tower.  At 1, 815 feet tall and the tallest freestanding structure in the western world, it is definitely one of the essential stops when visiting Toronto, Ontario.  You can enjoy each of its attractions individually, or you can purchase passes that include access to all the activities in one day.  The Lookout, at under a minute from the ground, is a wonderful way to see the city, and then have a quick bite at Horizons restaurant.  If you’re feeling brave, you can get a view straight down underneath your feet at the Glass Floor while the Sky Pod offers a 360 degree unobstructed view of the city and the high speed elevators that bring you to the top in under a minute!  It doesn’t end there.  You can end your CN tower visit with a unique dining experience at 360 The Restaurant, a revolving restaurant situated at over 1000 feet up the CN Tower.  You can enjoy fine dining with loved ones while overlooking a view of the entire city.

For those with an artistic interest, EscapeWizard.com suggests The Royal Ontario Museum.  Located at one of the busiest intersections in downtown Toronto, this museum offers group tours, cultural and natural history tours led by actual experts, city bus tours that are museum themed and walking tours that exhibit architectural neighborhoods around the city. The ROM even has free extended hours on Wednesday afternoons making it easy and affordable for family visits and low budget travelers.  For another artistic adventure, EscapeWizard.com recommends the Art Gallery of Toronto.  The AGO owns art pieces that range from European Art, Canadian Heritage Art, to Contemporary Art, and pieces dating back to 100 A.D..  This museum has a remarkably large spectrum of exhibitions.  It is one of the most renowned museums in the country.

If you have a keen interest for architecture and history, Casa Loma is a stop you cannot forego, and EscapeWizard.com highly recommends the experience.  A landmark dating back to the beginning of the 20th century, this castle stands out from this western city as it offers a taste of Europe.  Surrounded by beautiful gardens, offering daily tours in many languages, it is a unique experience for anyone interested in history.  And even if it isn’t your cup of tea, the architecture and the grounds surrounded the castle are breathtaking, making it a worthwhile stop, even after dark when all the lights come on. 

EscapeWizard.com also proposes you experience Toronto’s nightlife. The Club District located south of downtown will bring you a number of great options.  For any young artist, the Annex has delightful café’s and boutiques that are worth visiting. And for a lovely view of the water, Harbourfront Centre is a great place to go, and is located near the Entertainment District where you can catch a show! For a complete list of restaurants, maps, and links, please visit the following site: www.toronto.ca.

As you can see, EscapeWizard.com provides a starting point for any traveler to begin their journey.  And from there, anything is possible.  To book your flight to any of three Toronto airports such as Pearson International Airport (YYZ), the Toronto Island Airport (YTZ), or Toronto Buttonville Airport (YKZ), just click on this link to book with EscapeWizard.com today (www.escapewizard.com/flight.php).
