Escape to the Great White North—land of maple syrup, Mounties and moose. Toronto holidays let visitors experience famous Canadian manners while exploring the city's cultural attractions and indulging in the country's quirkiest cuisine, such as poutine and beaver tails.
Once you land at Toronto Pearson International Airport, head downtown to start your sightseeing. Get "oot" and "aboot" to see everything Toronto has to offer, from the historic Distillery District to the ultramodern Art Gallery of Ontario. If it's hockey night in Canada, take in a Maple Leafs game, or test your (virtual) goalie skills at the Hockey Hall of Fame—don’t worry, the pucks are just sponges!
See which celebs call Canada home on Canada's Walk of Fame, and get a 360-degree view of Toronto and Lake Ontario from the iconic 533-m CN Tower. Take a break from city sights at the Harbourfront Centre for relaxing lakeside activities and entertainment, or catch a ferry over to the beaches of Toronto Islands. Go beyond the city limits with one of Wotif’s Toronto car hire options and spend the day at Canada's Wonderland amusement park, or drive 128 km to scenic Niagara Falls.
You'll find everything on your shopping list in Toronto, from special Canadian souvenirs to popular North American brands. Shop along Queen West for a mix of quirky Canadiana (yes, that’s a real word!) and vintage threads, and check out the funky boutiques of Kensington Market to discover unique handmade items from local artisans. Visit Toronto Eaton Centre for brand-name retailers and to pick up extra luggage to hold all your new goodies.
To fuel up for a full day of exploring the city, you’ll need moose-sized meals. Fortunately, Toronto packages put you front and centre to diverse dining options to satisfy any belly and budget. Fuel up with eggs benny at a hip brunch spot in Leslieville, then make a lunchtime stop for a peameal bacon sandwich from the vendors at St. Lawrence Market. For dinner, look to Little Italy for charming cafes and bistros or The Annex for laid-back pubs and poutineries (that’s an entire store dedicated to the famous Canadian fries with cheese curds).
When the sun goes down and the CN Tower lights up, Toronto nights are hot, even in the coldest winters. Raise a glass or two during cocktail hour in the downtown Entertainment District at any of the bars, pubs and comedy clubs. Head up to Yonge-Dundas Square, which is always buzzing with events, festivals and free outdoor concerts. From Parkdale to Rosedale, you'll find an eclectic choice of live music, theatrical performances and art galleries across the city.
