Toronto has a wealth of diverse attractions. If your pleasure is simply getting to know the city, head to Toronto's downtown core, and you’re off to the races: The many things to do, see, and taste in the city's bustling downtown heart together offer an easy Introduction 101 to Toronto. The major museums, art galleries, and sports venues are here; plus, given the residential nature of the heart of the city, these top attractions are located in neighborhoods also worth exploring. There are day trips to consider, too: True wilderness, sublime beaches, a giant theme park and equally impressive zoo, and pretty regions of wine country that are also culinary destinations in their own right are all a drive, or train ride, away.

A Real Deal—You can save a lot of money visiting Toronto’s attractions by purchasing a Toronto CityPASS. See the CN Tower, Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada, Casa Loma, the Ontario Science Centre, the Royal Ontario Museum, and the Toronto Zoo for $88 adults, $59 kids 4 to 12. Each booklet of tickets is valid for 9 days from the time the first one is used. Note: Buyers have the option of either the zoo or the science center, but not both. It's available for purchase online, and also at any of the aforementioned attractions that accept the CityPASS.
