So get on it and check out these 5 great things to do in Toronto, Canada:

Check Out Kensington Market

While St. Lawrence Market might be a bit more well-known, Kensington Market is a bit more off the beaten path with an interesting, ethnic feel. Here you’ll find vintage clothing, accessories and any kind of food you could dream of from empanadas to Asian fusion cuisine. It’s a great place to people-watch, soak in the culture of the city and pick up some fun things to bring home.

Explore Graffiti Alley

For an experience that many tourists will never see, head to Queen Street West and poke around until you find the alley behind it. Here you’ll find a kilometer of walkway where nearly every inch is covered in graffiti It’s constantly being reinvented and painted over with new art, so bring your camera and capture the colorful artwork lining the alleyway.

Do the EdgeWalk at CN Tower

The tallest free-standing structure in the Western Hemisphere is just begging for you to explore it from its greatest height! Warning: this is not an attraction for those seeking anything less than a major thrill! Here you can walk all the way around the very top of the tower while attached to a rope and safety harness. Intense!!

Check Out the Distillery District

One of the most interesting areas of the city, the Distillery district is home to plenty of art galleries, restaurants and beer gardens to fill your days. Enjoy the quaint Victorian architecture and pop into a French cafe for some delicious macaroons.

Take the Ferry to Toronto Island

If a break from the city is what you crave, it’s a great option here in Toronto. Many locals take the ferry out to Toronto Island for a weekend escape, and it’s a perfect option for visitors as well. Check out the cute cottages, and bring a picnic to enjoy outdoors. There are also plenty of cafes and shops to poke around in.
