Video: Top 5 Things to Do in Toronto


The more I travel, the more I realize what a phenomenal city Toronto is. And I’m not just saying that because it’s my hometown. What I like most about Toronto is that it’s one of the most multicultural cities in the world, giving it a unique character and vibrancy unlike most international cities. You can almost literally experience the world right here in a single city.

Unfortunately, Toronto doesn’t rank up there as a “must-see” big city around the world. But I’m hoping this video will help convince you to reconsider your travel choices. There’s an incredible amount of amazing things to do in Toronto, and trying to pick the top 5 was no easy feat. From professional sports teams to wandering our various ethnic neighbourhoods, to experiencing our performing arts scene and yes, even climbing the CN Tower, not everything could make the list.

I consulted with a number of fellow Torontonians, and in the end we decided it was about experiencing certain aspects of our city rather than giving you 5 specific things to do.

So, may I present to you the Top 5 Things to Do (Experience) in Toronto:

Again, I couldn’t include everything I think someone should do or experience in Toronto. So, what else do you think a traveler to Toronto should do? Leave your thoughts and ideas in the comments section below.
