Tripps Plus members that have recently visited Toronto recommend the largest city in Canada as an excellent vacation destination for both singles and families. Toronto is the capital city of Ontario, Canada, and is within easy driving distance of many northern US cities.
Millions of travelers visit it every year to be charmed by the city’s beauty and its many attractions and activities. One of the most well-known landmarks along the way for many driving to the area is Niagara Falls.
Only a 90-minute drive from Toronto, it is well worth the drive to watch 750,000 gallons of water a second slide of a cliff right in front of you. Tripps Plus members agree that this is one of nature’s most spectacular sights that everyone in the family will enjoy.
Due to the normally colder climate, just about everybody ice-skates in Canada. While visiting Toronto, perhaps you will find it is an excellent time to show off your ice-skating skills as there are more than 30 outdoor rinks you may visit. Two of the most famous are the Harbourfront Centre and Nathan Phillips Square.
Ice hockey is the national game of Canada and is almost an obsession in Toronto. Tripps Plus members advise that tickets are almost always sold out when the city’s team, the Toronto Maple Leafs, are playing at their home arena. So be sure to plan and get your tickets in advance if you would like to view one of these exciting sports events.
Some of the other top-rated attractions that are a must-see in Toronto include The CN Tower, located in the center of the city. It is one of the tallest buildings in the world, with a height of 1,815 feet. The tower attracts millions of visitors looking for a bird’s eye view of Toronto and its surroundings. On the tower’s top floor, there is a restaurant where you can order a coffee or a cocktail and enjoy the spectacular view.
According to Tripps Plus members, another great attraction in Toronto is Casa Loma, one of Canada’s most magnificent castles. This immense structure dates back to the beginning of the 20th century and is an excellent example of the Gothic Revival style. You can explore the castle’s decorated suites, secret passages, towers, stables, and gardens by guided tour.
Tripps Plus members also recommend the Royal Ontario Museum or ROM, as locals call it. Visitors can enjoy all the galleries of art, archeology, and natural science exhibits. The museum also features a world-renowned collection of Chinese artifacts.
And finally, no trip to Toronto would be complete without a visit to the Centre Island. This group of small islands forms the largest car-free population in North America. Only a few service vehicles are allowed. Centre Island attracts travelers from around the world with its amusement park, great restaurants, and beaches.
Tripps Plus members highly recommend Toronto, Canada, as a fun-filled vacation destination for all these reasons and many more.
