Places in Toronto. DELUXE EDITION

In my previous posts, I covered top-10 places to see in T. But there is still so much more in this city! I decided to share a few more details with you. Just some general recommendations. And please don’t mind the posh title – it’s all my twisted imagination 😝


 

If you’re traveling with kids (or you’re still a kid deep inside 😉), there a few more places I haven’t mentioned before you would want to visit, like:

 

Ripley’s Aquarium

Conveniently situated right by the CN Tower, Ripley’s Aquarium will make every child and adult excited! Big tanks with a wide range of different fishes and other marine creatures, everything clean and nicely arranged and many interactive things to do. You’ll definitely like the tunnel with big fish (like sharks and rays) while you’re slowly moving on a special platform, jellyfish section and divers feeding the creatures inside a huge tank every few hours.


 

Toronto Zoo

It might not be the best zoo I’ve ever seen, but it is still worth visiting. All animals are kept in the environment very close to natural (that’s why it sometimes looks a bit “wild”) and are taken care of by professionals. Lots of people visit the zoo and spend some time in long queues to have a chance to watch pandas raised here. There are not so many pandas left in the world, and most of them are in China. Toronto Zoo is one of few world zoos that can brag about having their own “black and white bears”. Good for them and for us!

Ontario Science Centre

Here everything feels real and… fun! Yes, science can be fun. There are several halls dedicated to different science fields. I was very much impressed by all the Human Body “stuff”. Oh, and they have a small tropical forest here, as well as an IMAX cinema displaying some amazing science pieces for all those who care about the world around them 😉


 

If you want to become true friends with Toronto, you should prepare yourself to hours of exploring the city on foot. Seriously. I believe that only in this way you would feel the vibes 😉 Toronto is famous for its multiculturalism. Diversity here is a THING. Imagine. You move half across the globe to a huge international community where everyone is so different, yet so similar.

Little Italy, Chinatown, Bloor West Village (Ukrainian, Polish, Estonian, Lithuanian), Greektown, Little India, Kensington Market… I mean, no words can describe – you should see it yourself.

Some say, Toronto doesn’t have “a single face”. So what? Who cares? Toronto has a single voice, and that’s way more important.


 

And lastly, a life – or rather, travel −  hack I need to mention.

 

*CITY PASS

This happen to be a great relief for all the travellers who want to see a lot without wasting a lot. Toronto is a very expensive city, everyone knows that. And entrance fees to many exhibits are often rather costly. You may be able to save some money (more precisely, 40%) if you purchase a City Pass that includes tickets to five main city attractions: the CN Tower, Ripley’s Aquarium, ROM, Casa Loma, Toronto Zoo OR Ontario Science Centre. You can get a city pass in any of these exhibits, just remember to use all the tickets in 9 days so they don’t expire.

 

And have yourself an awesome trip to Toronto!

I’m sorry… I just can’t 😂 Moriarty ❤

 

P.S. If you have ANY questions, don’t hesitate to ask them.

 

 

See ya, my curious friends 👋🏽
