The city core begs to be walked: from landmarks such as the CN Tower through to Chinatown, the Fashion District and Kensington Market, there's many options if you’re looking for things to do in Toronto. Many outfits in the city offer fantastic walking tours across several categories: architecture, historical buildings and city history, food and drink or street art, to name a few.

One of the largest museums in North America is the Royal Ontario Museum, which possess more than six million items and forty galleries of world culture and natural history. Formerly the home of the NHL’s Toronto Maple Leafs, Maple Leaf Gardens today is a multipurpose facility with retail and athletics. It was constructed in 1931 and is situated in downtown Toronto. If you plan on visiting Toronto in late September, 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, more than 125 animated displays are put up, and millions of trees are decorated all over the city.
