Toronto has beautiful places to sightsee, an exciting history, and is home to one of the locations of Reynolds and Reynolds! If you’re thinking about visiting Toronto, are new to the city, or a local and need ideas for a night out, you’re in luck. Here are the top sightseeing locations according to some of our employees.

1. CN Tower

Located downtown, the CN tower is a recognizable piece of Toronto’s skyline and conducts tours year-round. While atop the CN tower, tourists can participate in what the tower claims to be “Toronto’s most extreme attraction,” Edgewalk. During Edgewalk, tourists are securely suspended over the edge of the building to experience the city in a whole new way. You can easily spend a few hours or an entire day exploring this attraction.

2. Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada

Aquariums are always fun to visit and host family-friendly events as well as ones for adults. If you’re looking to spend an afternoon at Ripley’s, get ready to see lionfish, jellyfish, and green sea turtles. Check out the programs they offer for a themed adventure.

3. Toronto Zoo

If you would rather look at land animals than underwater sea creatures, there’s a zoo located an hour outside of Toronto. The Toronto Zoo is home to over 5,000 animals from all over the world and will soon have a rare Amur tiger.

4. Hockey Hall of Fame

Both hockey fans and sports enthusiasts can enjoy the Hockey Hall of Fame. It offers an interesting behind-the-scenes look at the history of the sport before and after the puck drops. In the hall of fame, visitors can look at the Montreal Canadians' old dressing room, view how the sport is broadcasted, and see legendary trophies such as the Stanley Cup.

5. Hop-On Hop-Off City Tours

If you need more than just an afternoon of fun, the Hop-On Hop-Off city tour around Toronto is a great way to spend a weekend. This two day pass allows you to design your own personal itinerary of 20 different locations for anywhere along the city route. You can sightsee at your own pace with onboard commentary and hop off any time you would like.

6. Kensington Market

A staple of Toronto, the Kensington Market hosts great food, a huge selection of beer, and live music. The market can easily be a great shopping experience or a fun afternoon with friends.

7. High Park

Located just outside the city is Toronto’s largest public park, High Park. Hiking, sports facilities, a lake, a zoo, and other amenities make this a hot spot for visitors and locals. It’s also low budget as admission to the park and parking are free!

8. Terre Bleu Lavender Farm

Located about an hour outside of Toronto sits the Terre Bleu farm. Guests are able to take guided tours of the farm, and it also hosts an apiary, famous artwork, and a bar. For yoga lovers, the farm frequently hosts “Yoga in the Fields.”

9. Canada’s Wonderland

Thrill seekers welcome! If you want an afternoon of roller coasters and rides, check out Canada’s Wonderland. The park hosts 16 roller coasters and has several new thrill rides. There are also special events for almost every occasion all summer long.

10. The Distillery District

Coffee and beer enthusiasts will love The Distillery District in Toronto. Fun shops, cafés, and pubs line the streets to provide a great atmosphere for going out with friends. The district frequently holds events, so keep an eye on their calendar to see what will take place in the near future.
