What is there to do in Downtown Toronto?
A more difficult question to answer would be “What cannot be done in Toronto?” Our city, the capital of Ontario, is the largest city in the country – and we love to show it off to locals and visitors!
See Toronto from Above
The most recognizable feature of Downtown Toronto’s skyline is the CN Tower, which can be seen from almost every spot in the city. You can ride to the top to see stunning views of Toronto and Lake Ontario from the observation area, stand on the glass floor, and dine at the soaring Horizons Restaurant.
For the brave at heart, we recommend doing the Edge Walk, which involves walking hands-free around the main pod of the CN Tower, while attached to a rope and harness.
See Toronto on the Ground
Right next to the CN Tower in Downtown Toronto, but much closer to street level, is the Rogers Centre. This immense sports arena has a sliding roof, which allows it to flip between an outdoor and indoor venue. Also, longtime locals and visitors alike enjoy behind-the-scenes tours that are available.
To stay fueled as you explore Downtown Toronto, head to the St. Lawrence Market to sample a variety of foods from vendors. And when the sun goes down, a great place to catch nightlife is in the Entertainment District that runs along King Street, where there is always a show to see.
Museums Worth Mentioning
Just like every major city, Toronto has an array of world-class museums. The Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) features one of the best displays of art in Canada, with international exhibits from all times. A newbie in Downtown Toronto is Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada, located just beneath CN Tower.
The underwater tunnel will thrill lovers of marine life, where you can ride a moving sidewalk through the ocean display. Another site to add your family-fun itinerary is the Ontario Science Center, located on the northeast edge of the city center. This modern museum has many interactive exhibits to engage anyone fascinated by technology.
Oasis in the City
To escape the thriving hustle of Downtown Toronto and rest your eyes and body, our optometry team recommends relaxing in High Park. This massive green area (165 acres!) has natural ponds, streams, nature trails, a scenic train tour, and sunken gardens that invite you to enjoy the calmer moments of life. During the summer, don’t miss Shakespeare in the Park, performed in the open-air theatre.
We don’t want you to miss out on seeing any part of Downtown Toronto! That’s why it is essential to keep your vision in shape with regular eye exams at Corktown Eyecare.
