Things to do in Toronto

If you want another great look at the Toronto landscape aside from Niagara Falls, why not stop by the Scarborough Bluffs? Several parks allow you access to the cliff tops for a spectacular view of Lake Ontario, but be warned that walking up the cliffs can be quite difficult! If you like self-guided tours and food, go to the tourism office in Toronto and pick up a brochure entitled "Taste Trail." This tour is a great way to test your culinary limits by sampling as much Toronto food and drink as possible!

If you plan on visiting Toronto in late September, go be a part of the ten-day Toronto International Film Festival. Films are screened from all over the world at the Bell Lightbox, right next to the Art Gallery of Ontario.

Another late-season event not to miss is the Winter Festival of Lights. From November to mid-January, over one hundred and twenty-five animated displays are put up, and millions of trees are decorated all over the city. As if the massive lights display weren't amazing enough, it’s all close to Niagara Falls!
