Toronto is a very large city and it is ranked as North America’s 4th largest when considering its population. It is probably difficult to imagine just how many tourists come to Toronto each year, but they are indeed many. These are some of the things they can see and do while in town.

Art Gallery of Ontario
The largest art gallery in Canada has free admission after 6PM. The gallery has been renovated by architect Frank Gehry. You’ll want to see some of the most expensive paintings, such as Ruben's The Massacre of the Innocents, or the largest collection of sculptures by Henry Moore.

Casa Loma
This house will force you to take a step or two back in time. This is a museum filled with secret passages, a tunnel, towers, and tours in 8 languages, including Mandarin, korean, and Japanese.

Canadian National Exhibition (CNE)
This agricultural fair is Canada’s largest, and North America’s 5th largest. It starts mid-August and ends early in September.

Ontario Science Centre
You must stop by it especially with your kids. you can experience the soundproof tunnel, see a tornado machine, a rainforest, or you can even test your balance. The fun doesn’t end here, though. Here you can also find Ontario's only Omnimax, that is a full wrap around movie theatre.

The Toronto Islands
There are many things to do here: see the city’s breathtaking skyline, have a picnic, cycling, walking around, swimming in summer, or have fun in the Centreville amusement park with the kids.

Shopping
Everyone loves shopping, and Toronto sure has many opportunities to offer to those interested in it. Yonge street alone has many stores where you can stop: the Hudson Bay Company's Queen Street Store, the supermarket at the Maple Leaf Gardens, or the World's Biggest Book Store that stays true to its name.
