What you'll do

The sprawling cityscape of Toronto is as diverse as the community that calls it home, and with a local leading the way, you’ll explore several surprising sides of this multicultural metropolis. From bohemian boroughs to urban beaches, all linked by distinct neighborhoods, we’ll make sure you see it all. You might stop and admire iconic old buildings – or perhaps your idea of prominent architecture is the Leslieville Doll House, a home whose front garden has been planted with kids’ toys and quirky collectibles. Feeling peckish from all the sightseeing? Grab a snack at the centuries-old St. Lawrence Market, or sit down for a Canadian classic at a charming café in buzzing Queen Street, a major thoroughfare and treasure trove of entertainment.

Where you’ll go

In the heart of downtown Toronto, along the three-mile stretch between the Old City Hall and laid-back Leslieville, you’ll find a little bit of everything. Once you’ve taken a moment to admire the Romanesque architecture of the City Hall, you could stop off at the bustling St. Lawrence Market for a quick browse – or maybe you’ll make your way directly to Sugar Beach, an urban beach park dotted with pink umbrellas and locals taking some well-deserved downtime. From here, it might be a good idea to head to the Distillery District, where the cobbled streets of a 19th-century whisky distillery are today lined with trendy bars and boutiques, before peering into the antique stores, galleries, shops, and cafés of vibrant Queen Street East.
