Toronto - Leisure, Entertainment & Sports

Toronto throbs with cultural and sporting events throughout the year, and has superb infrastructure to host events and performances of every nature. If youre looking for a casual evening out, the Harbourfront and Entertainment Districts are ideal. Check the Internet or the newspapers for a schedule of events held here, for free music shows, concerts and other events are organized regularly throughout the summers.

Art galleries and art studios in the Bloor/Yorkville neighborhood showcase Canadian and international art, while at the Toronto Free Gallery, you can acquaint yourself with exhibitions that take up social, cultural and environmental causes. The Art Gallery of Ontario, the City Hall, the Design Exchange museum, and the Hockey Hall of Fame count among Torontos famous attractions. But in the midst of them all, the CN Tower stands tallest, providing outstanding views, a thrilling elevator ride and fine food!

For lovers of the outdoors, the drive up to the Woodbine Beach, a day at the Allan Gardens Conservatory, or star gazing at the York Universitys Observatory are some of the options to look at. Theres even a forest within the city, the Riverdale Farm where nature trails take you right up to farm animals and vegetable gardens. The Don Valley too is perfect for trekking, with its steep trails through thick woods.
