Visiting Toronto

The following page is brought to you by:

When you're thinking of buying a Toronto loft or another type of property in the GTA, it's advisable that you at least visit the area to check out some properties before you commit to buying anything. You can do the trip as a business trip or turn it into a pleasure adventure, it's up to you. While you're here, you should take advantage of the many things Toronto has to do so you'll know what your life will be like when you live there. Here are some of our favorite things to do in Toronto.

See the Sights

Toronto has a very distinctive skyline thanks to the monstrous CN Tower. You'll probably be able to see it from the airport or on the way into town. Go up to the top and look around or have dinner at the revolving restaurant. There's also a real castle, called Casa Loma, in Toronto that you can visit, as well as an eclectic collection of modern and historical buildings. A good way to become familiar with what there is to see is to take a bus tour of the city.


Toronto may be a big city, but it's got plenty of greenspace to roam around in. You can go swimming in the Beaches neighborhood, sail Lake Ontario, or hike in the ravines that thread their way through Mississauga. The scenery on Toronto Island is as nice as you would see if you booked a cottage rental in PEI. If you're more of a watcher than a doer, visit Toronto's famed Rogers Centre for a baseball or a football game, or take to the rinks to watch the Toronto Maple Leafs of the NHL play a game.

Take in a Show

Toronto is the entertainment capital of Canada, which means there are more concerts, plays, movies, trade shows, and festivals than you can shake a stick at. Toronto is frequently host to Broadway plays and film premieres. You can see a small band at a downtown bar or a major multi-platinum artist that can pack the Air Canada Center. Tickets might cost you a fair bit, but they're worth it.

Learn Something New

Toronto has many museums to choose from, and going to one for the afternoon is much more enlightening and educational than redeeming Edmonton spa packages. The Royal Ontario Museum has a large dinosaur collection and hosts traveling displays while the Ontario Science Center is a kid favorite. Or you can go to a more eclectic museum focused on something like hockey or shoes.
