25 Things to do in Toronto, Ontario Travel Guide and Top Attractions in Toronto, Canada Video Transcript:

Toronto is considered Canada’s melting pot. It is said that half of the people living in Toronto were born outside of the country, so that means lots of different languages, sights and flavours, which make the city a really fun place to explore. With only a few days in Toronto, we set out to visit a mix of neighbourhoods, top attractions, and of course, we also made time to sample plenty of food. The following travel guide will showcase 25 things to do in Toronto, so if you’re planning a trip here or you need some travel inspiration, be sure to stick around as we take you on a city tour.

And that’s a wrap for TO! We hope you enjoyed this city guide and that it gave you some ideas of what to see and where to go on your trip.

    Great video guys. As a native Russia-born Torontonian, if I may suggest you to try Moscow as your next destination. Forget the *-ing politicians and just go to Russia. You'll find a completely different world there, the experience you won't regret. Love your videos!

  2. I love Toronto because my favourite singer is from there. And because it look so pretty.

    I have been to Toronto a handful of times and as someone who is not from Ontario and has seen many other beautiful cities I must admit it's shit… over-inflated ego, crap scenery, dirty Lake, and putrid air I guess you need all that ego to think it's anything more than Detroit in canada

    Cheers!

  23. ray bon says:

    I once heard a rumor, that a group of expos fans …numbering between 150 to 1000 go to blue Jay sky dome games. To see if they could one day bring the expos back…Lloll. ironic considering when they were playing barely 5000 people would go. Funny story that I heard, sure canadians will enjoy. Today expos became the Marlins. Where I am in miami. Lloll….

  41. balan c says:

    RIP Scarborough ( ; – 😉 everyone forgot about Scarborough ever since it was added to Toronto

  42. TovaShai says:

    I had the opportunity to visit Toronto in 2002. I went to the CN Tower, Casa Loma, Art Gallery of Ontario, and Royal Ontario Museum, and thoroughly enjoyed myself at all four places. As a Barenaked Ladies fan (I was actually in town for a fan convention), I also went to Nathan Phillips Square & bought Bare Naked Lady powder at Lush, though the powder seems to be discontinued as I can't find it on their website now. It was a wonderful extended weekend! 😀

    As a side note, I noticed two things about the city in general: it seemed to have a lot of parks, trees, and green space compared to my home city; also, I found the public transportation to be very easy to navigate, clean (compared to my home city), and many of the subway stations had really beautiful tile mosaics which were really lovely to discover and take a few moments to enjoy.

  43. Jim Gilbert says:

    Great video and overview. You guys rock.. Hugs Jim

  44. X Eagle says:
