About Toronto Tourism
Tourism in Toronto is driven by Lake Ontario, shopping places and malls, iconic galleries and museums and beautiful coastlines. In short, the city of Toronto is a paradise for the urban traveler. Visiting CN Tower and exploring the Distillery District are the highlights of Toronto Tourism.
History of Toronto
The area was settled as Fort Rouillé in 1750 by French traders and later established as the town of York in in 1793. It was finally incorporated as the city on March 6, 1834. In 1998, six municipalities were annexed into a single one named the City of Toronto.
People, Language and Culture
The residents of Toronto speak English and French widely. Almost half of the city’s population was born outside of Canada which makes it one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the world. The city serves as the hub of media and entertainment market in Canada.
Famous food in Toronto
There are a wide variety of cuisines which one can relish on when in Toronto. You can have amazing Chinese and Vietnamese cuisines at the six Chinatowns here in Toronto, Greek cuisine in Danforth, Korean cuisine in Koreatown, Italian cuisine in Little Italy and Corso Italia and Indian cuisine in Little India.
Honeymoon in Toronto
A scenic walk around the sunset along the shores of Lake Ontario will make your romantic vacation more special in Canada. Catching panoramic views of the city from the top of CN Tower, outdoor activities at Rouge Park, planning a trip to Niagara Falls, and taking a stroll in Toronto Botanical Gardens are popular things to do in Toronto on a honeymoon.
Major Festivals in Toronto
The Toronto International Film Festival is a world-famous annual event screening films from all over the world. Toronto's Caribana or Scotiabank Caribbean Carnival is organized from mid-July to early August during the summer season. Pride Week, Santa Claus Parade around Christmas, and Toronto International Boat Show are also major events in the city.
The shopping scene in Toronto is big and wide. Saint Lawrence Market, Kensington Market, and China Town Market are the veteran places, meant to shop for anything under the sky. Yorkville on Bloor Avenue is a shopping destination of different flavor amidst the concrete jungle. It is a quaint Victorian building housing a dozen boutiques and indoor cafes. Queen Street has the similar vibe, but more chic-hip and bohemian in style. If one wants their no-nonsense retail shopping with the frills of malls and vintage buildings, Kensington Market and Chinatown is the place to go for clothes, jewelry, décor items, and trinkets along with exotic Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese food. Vaughn Mills, Dufferin Mall, Brookfield Place, and Toronto Eaton Centre are the good malls here.
Climb the CN Tower
The CN Tower is the iconic landmark of Toronto as well as entire Canada. From the outside, it is the queen of Toronto’s studded skyline, rising above every other building into the sky. Together with the needle-like spire, the building stands at the height of 1815 feet – the third highest tower in the world. Inside, one can take the elevators straight up at height 1136 feet where the Sky pod is located. From here, you can have a spectacular view of the entire city through ceiling-to-floor glass windows. The outer ledge of the tower has an extreme adventure opportunity called The Edge Walk, where you will be harnessed with a leash in the channel above your head, and can walk around the rim at that height. The experience is one of the most spine-chilling attractions of Toronto tourism.
Here are some more attractions to include in your Toronto holiday.
Located at the base of CN Tower is the famous Ripley’s Aquarium. This is the country’s largest indoor aquarium and collection of marine animals. You can find sharks, stingrays, lobsters, jellyfish and all other sorts of colorful fish possible to imagine. This is a must-visit place if the underwater world fascinates you.
Royal Ontario Museum or ROM, in short, is Canada’s largest museum of culture and history. The premier museum has numerous galleries featuring objects of science, geology, history, and archaeology. From mummies of ancient Egypt to dinosaur fossils to interactive, hands-on sessions, this place is quite a delight.
3. Toronto Island and Centreville
On your trip to Toronto, it is mandatory to make boating, canoeing, kayaking or cruising trip to the Toronto Islands. There are public ferries to avail as well. There are lovely beaches, idyllic picnic spots, and the Centreville Theme Park, along with an excellent view of the Toronto skyline dominated by the CN Tower.
4. The Distillery District
The Distillery District of Toronto is a National Historic Site. Cobblestones pave the road, and Victorian buildings line up on both sides of the city’s first distillery ever. The spirits made by this district once contributed to the lion’s share of Ontario’s economy. Now it is a lovely neighborhood to stroll through, art galleries and boutiques to explore and vintage cafes to dine in.
5. Toronto Zoo
Toronto travel is incomplete without seeing the cute pandas, fluffy polar bears and angry gorillas in the Toronto Zoo. Home to over 5000 animals, this zoo is among the best Toronto tours to make with family and kids. From the African Savannah enclosure to the Giant Panda visit, this zoo rewards with the best animal experience in the city.

Travel To Toronto
Read about the best & quickest routes to save time & money, as suggested by our travelers
Direct flights from Toronto to India are only there from two Indian cities – Delhi and Mumbai. The direct flights are obviously also the fastest modes of commute, but cheap flights from India to Toronto are mostly the one-stop ones. Both direct India to Toronto flights are operated by Air Canada. The one from Delhi leaves every day of the week and takes 14 hours 25 minutes to reach. The Mumbai flight is less frequent – only three times a week on Monday, Thursday and Saturday, and takes 15 hours 50 minutes to reach. Other flights are jointly operated by Indian airlines like Jet Airways and Air India and connect with British Airways, Air Canada, Cathay Pacific, Lufthansa, Swiss Air, and other carriers.
The only country one drive to Canada from is the USA. There are no possible ways to go from India to Toronto by roadway for obvious geographical distance. If one is in the USA first, then they can drive through the border point at Buffalo. From here, driving distance to Toronto is 1 hour 45 minutes and to Niagara Falls is 30 minutes only. The Rainbow Bridge over the Niagara Falls is open for anyone to walk across and enter Canada. But only walking through is allowed and no personal or commercial vehicles is entertained. You will still need a proper passport and driver’s license as identity proofs.
