Tips for Traveling to Toronto
Very few tourists visit Toronto in winter. Not only is there a high chance of snow and ice, it can get bitterly cold so warm gear is essential. During spring and fall, the city enjoys mild temperatures but with a good chance of rain. June to October is the perfect time to visit.
Be sure to book a hotel room well in advance. Toronto welcomed over 40 million people in 2015 and while there are plenty of hotels in the city, it’s advisable to make a reservation.
Don’t forget to adjust your watch as Toronto is three hours ahead of San-Francisco.
Attractions in Toronto
At the top of just about every tourist’s list is seeing the CN-Tower. Whether they admire the tower from the ground up or take the elevator to the observation deck and restaurant, the 1,814 feet high tower is awe inspiring.
To go back in time, be sure to visit Casa Loma, a fairy tale gothic revival style mansion commissioned by Sir Henry Mill Pellatt and completed in 1914.
Toronto sports 159 sights and landmarks, 100 parks, 84 museums, and endless shopping possibilities. Tourists might not notice any shops though as Torontonians do most of their downtown shopping along the P.A.T.H., stretching over 18 miles and housing 1,200 stores, services and entertainment.
