These include the various cultural neighborhoods such as Little Italy, Chinatown, Greektown, Koreatown, Little India, Little Portugal, just to name a few. With over 7,000 restaurants being a foodie in Toronto will not disappoint? whether you want to spend a few bucks on a street vendor or treat yourself to five star dining you will find what you desire. Your biggest decision will be which neighborhood you should visit, after that we can guarantee that someone in that community makes it best!
Festivals, festivals, festivals!
Because Toronto has a mandate to create and promote dynamic and innovative events and festivals we have a busy calendar year with many wonderful festivals including; The Beaches International Jazz Festival, Pride Parade, Caribana, Toronto International Film Festival, Luminato, Nuite Blanche, Taste of The Danforth, just to name a few.
Depending on the time of year one can always catch a live sporting event. In the summer check out our baseball team the Toronto Blue Jays play at the Rogers Centre which has a unique one of its kind fully retractable roof. There you can also catch our football team The Argos play their home games. In the fall you can get tickets to Toronto Maple Leafs as well as our minor hockey team The Marlies. And lastly let's not forget about our beloved Toronto Raptors; catch their home games at The Air Canada Centre for as little as $15.00 per seat. If these sports still don't tickle your fancy you can always catch a soccer or lacrosse game (after all lacrosse is one of our national sports).
You have some spare cash to spend? Whether its $5 or $500 there is a shop for you. On the lower end you can check out the black markets, thrift and vintage shops along Queen Street West. On the higher end you can visit Yorkville where you'll find posh stores such as Coach and Holt Renfrew. Everything in between can be purchased at the Eaton Centre (a shopping mall spanning an entire city block).
And there's more...
Toronto isn't all concrete; visit one of 1,400 parks throughout the City of Toronto for a peaceful walk or picnic.
Let's not forget the key tourist attractions of our beautiful city, if time permits these are all worth a look; CN Tower, Harbour Front Centre, Toronto Islands, Art Gallery of Ontario, Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto Zoo, Nathan Phillips Square, St. Lawrence Market, Distillery District, and Casa Loma.
