Considering that Toronto is one of North America’s largest and most diverse cities, it would be insane to suggest that someone could see all that it has to offer in only one weekend. However, if you’re planning on visiting the city but you’re crunched for time, you can definitely schedule your trip in a way where you can tackle some of Toronto’s major attractions. Here are some things you definitely should not miss on your next trip to Toronto.
Starting your Toronto trip with a visit to the CN Tower is like looking at a menu when you’re at a restaurant. From such a vantage point, you’ll be able to survey the city and have a greater awareness of the scale of the city and your location within it. Head early in the day to avoid the crowds.
