1. The Toronto skyline
There are a handful of spots to catch a picture-perfect view of Toronto’s iconic skyline, but these three should top your list: the crest of the hill at Riverdale Park (grab a cocoa at Rooster Coffee House first), the west shore of Tommy Thompson Park (known locally as Leslie Street Spit) and the north shore of Toronto Island. You’re welcome, Instagrammers! #PerfectView.
2. CN Tower EdgeWalk
If you’ve already stood on the glass floor of the Wonder of the Modern World that is the CN Tower, it’s time to take the next challenge: The EdgeWalk. The adrenaline-pumping attraction takes participants around the exterior of the restaurant’s roof – a whopping 1,168 feet above the city streets.
3. Friday Night Jazz at Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada
On the second Friday of every month, Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada (home to 16,000 aquatic specimens) invites non-gilled guests to sip cocktails and enjoy some live jazz. Where else can you pet a stingray, sip a martini and tap your foot to a beat at (almost) the same time?
