A Toronto Icon
The CN Tower defines the Toronto skyline. When it was built in 1972 it was the tallest freestanding structure in the world. While that milestone has since been surpassed by newer buildings, you can still appreciate the views from its observation areas and restaurants. From the Sky Pod, 447 meters above ground level, you can see as far as New York State and Niagara Falls on a clear day. Another must-see stop is the Casa Loma, a vast 1914 mansion built by Sir Henry Pellatt in the style of a medieval castle. It has since been turned into a museum of nearly 100 rooms detailing an era of European decadence and splendor.
Other fun museums in Toronto include the Art Gallery of Ontario, which holds over 95,000 pieces of world art, including both classical European masterpieces and some of the best Canadian Artwork. The Royal Ontario Museum, with its controversial yet famous Michael Lee-Chin Crystal wing, has a wide collection of natural history, art, and cultural exhibits.
Ripley's Aquarium is a newer Toronto attraction and a major draw for families. Its main features include an underwater tunnel, a colorful jellyfish exhibit, and touch tanks of sharks and stingrays. Another popular family outing is a day trip to Niagara Falls, which is only an hour away from the city. Thirdly, the Toronto Zoo is another beloved family attraction. A tour of the zoo will take you through various ecosystems around the globe from the African rainforest to the Arctic tundra.
If you are coming to Toronto for the nightlife, you may want a Toronto timeshare near the Entertainment District. This district is known as Toronto's answer to Broadway. Its theater productions, concerts, musicals, dining, and socializing options are unbeatable in this city, and you'll find many hotels catering to the night owl tourist in this area.
Your travel plans are going to be strongly affected by the time of year you choose to visit. A Toronto timeshare vacation in the winter is best if you have indoor events and activities in mind, and you'll find that November through February is the slowest season in Toronto. Tourism peaks in the summertime, especially July and August, before the numbers fall off in September. You'll find that the city gets steadily busier from March through June but spring is still a good time to find deals on travel.
