Ottawa - Toronto - Montreal - Vancouver - Qubec City


Canada's largest city has long since shrugged off its frightfully proper, goody-two-shoes tag, thanks to a healthy dose of multiculturalism. You'll hear a babble of more than 100 languages spoken on Toronto's streets, and it's estimated that 40% of the population was born overseas - no wonder UNESCO voted it the world's most diverse city! Toronto's most obvious symbol is the CN Tower, the world's tallest freestanding structure. Harbourfront, the (perhaps overly) renovated docklands area lining Lake Ontario, is a fine place for an outdoor wander or meal in a refurbished warehouse. For indoors entertainment the city has a clutch of great museums, from killer clodhoppers at the Bata Shoe Museum to the Hockey Hall of Fame, housed in a beautiful old bank building. Some of Toronto's best-preserved historic buildings can be found in York Old Town, and there's a peerless collection of fine Victorian domestic architecture in Cabbagetown. And a mere two-hour's drive away there's one of North America's top tourist attractions, Niagara Falls.

CN Tower CN Tower

At 553.3 metres, this is officially the world's tallest building. Since its spectacular opening in 1976, the tower has hosted close to two million visitors a year. One of the most exciting ways to see the world is from the exterior, glass-floored observation deck, located 342 metres above ground. Or you can go up to the Space Deck at 447 metres, the world's tallest observation deck with a 160-kilometre view. The revolving 360 Degrees Restaurant and Horizons Bar complete the dizzying picture.

Harbourfront Harbourfront

Used primarily as the city's industrial docklands for decades, the Harbourfront area has been developed over the last 30 years into a recreational and cultural attraction that now draws more than three million visitors per year. Part of Harbourfront's attraction is that it is many things to many people. Some shop at the Newcourt Centre); others take in an outdoor concert at Molson Place; still others turn out for the annual book reading events. Admission is free; event and individual attraction prices vary.

SkyDome SkyDome

Home to the Toronto Blue Jays since the 1989 season, as well as the Argonaut Canadian Football League squad, this $500-million-plus architectural marvel is the first stadium to have a fully retractable roof. Seating more than 50,000 for baseball, the stadium boasts the world's largest JumboTron scoreboard, a 346-room hotel with some suites facing the field, and a Hard Rock Cafewith field-view seating. Guided tours operate daily depending on the event schedule: CAD12.50.
Ontario Science Centre Ontario Science Centre

With more than 800 exhibits and a dozen halls, it is no wonder this science centre has managed to attract over 30 million visitors since it opened in 1969. Aside from traditional science shows, the centre also features interactive areas where visitors can take part in their own experiments. It also offers a movie complex with a 320-seat capacity, offering screenings of thrilling and educational IMAX format films aimed at the entire family. Admission: CAD10 Adult; CAD7 Senior/Youth; CAD6 Child; $25 Family Pass.
Wonderland Paramount Canada's Wonderland

Paramount Canada's Wonderland is Canada's premier theme park and features over 200 attractions, more than 60 thrilling rides, North America's greatest variety of roller coasters, and Splash Works, a 20-acre water park.
