Canada, Toronto Guide (B): Top 15 Things to Do, Eat and Drink in Toronto

Toronto, the capital of the province of Ontario, is a dynamic city on the shores of Lake Ontario, with a thriving food and drink scene and numerous world-class attractions and quirky neighbourhoods that we thoroughly enjoyed exploring. Here are our highlights from our recent visit in April, although the weather, we were told, was more typical of January.

We stayed at Ramada Plaza Toronto Downtown in the Garden District, a great location just a short walk to many of Toronto’s great restaurants, bars, shops and visitor attractions. It’s a comfortable 3-star hotel that was perfect for our needs with one of our favourite bars, Duke’s Refresher, just around the corner.

The highest viewing point is the SkyPod at 447 metres (1,465 feet), the Glass Floor and Sky Terrace are 342 metres (1,122 feet) high, while the LookOut Level is 346 metres (1,136 feet) above the city streets. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
