Toronto's Top 10 To-Dos
InterContinental Toronto Yorkville is in the middle of all the best things to do in Toronto. The neighboring Art Gallery of Ontario houses one of the most prized collections in North America, with over 73,000 pieces. For a slice of Canadian life, catch a game of hockey, our national sport, at the Air Canada Centre. Nature lover should make time to pass through Allan Gardens Conservatory's 6 greenhouses of seasonal plant life, as well as Ashbridge's Bay Park, perfect for a waterside summer stroll. Everyone visiting Toronto absolutely must see Canada's National Tower, a 553-metre (1,815.4 ft) spectacle with a glass floor and excellent shopping. Speaking of which, The Distillery Historic District & St. Lawrence Market Complex are both infamous for their galleries, specialty stores, and farm-fresh foods. If you need a break from the hustle and bustle, check out Riverdale Farm for a country escape in the middle of downtown. And for a truly unique experience, stop by The Bata Shoe Museum, featuring more than 13,000 shoes, before washing the day down with Toronto's flagship beer: Steam Whistle Pilsner at Steam Whistle Brewing. After all that, come back and relax at InterContinental Toronto Yorkville, and do it all again tomorrow.
