Toronto has many attractions for tourists this summer, including parks, festivals, and various locations open year-round. Some of these sites can be found all over Toronto, making getting around town difficult and stressful for out-of-towners. Book a charter bus service to save yourself from traffic and other hassles. Avoid inconvenience and enjoy your trip.
Some must-see places to visit include:
Also known as Canada’s tallest building, the CN Tower features breathtaking views of the GTA and Lake Ontario from its observation decks and restaurants. For the adventurous, there is the “Edge Walk,” a hands-free walk around the outside edge of the main pod, 365 metres high (don’t worry, participants are attached to a rope and safety harness). Visit Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada near the base of the tower for an exhibition of marine life, including an underwater tunnel, jellyfish display, and touch tanks.
If you’re looking for a place to spend a quiet, scenic day, visit High Park. High Park features picnic areas, animal paddocks, swimming and wading pools, and a train tour, making it perfect for a family outing. For fans of the Bard, the Canadian Stage Company performs Shakespeare in High Park in the open-air theatre every summer (it’s Romeo and Juliet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream this year, if you were wondering).
Located in the heart of downtown Toronto, Fort York is a 43-acre national historic site, and the founding landscape of Toronto. The fort boasts the largest collection of buildings dating back to the War of 1812, offers tours and exhibits, and (during the summer) features historical reenactors in the form of the Fort York Guard, making it a must-visit for history buffs.
Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament
For a medieval dining experience, check out Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament. You’ll be served a four-course banquet by your own “serf,” and be entertained by actors showing you skilled swordplay, horsemanship, and falconry. Your experience is finally topped off by an authentic jousting tournament between the “knight” performers.
Mysterious Minds Escape Rooms
If you’re a fan of live-action problem solving and puzzles, check out Mysterious Minds Escape Rooms. They feature three unique rooms, in which you have sixty minutes to follow the clues before time runs out. The rooms are family-friendly, so sleuths of all ages can enjoy.
