A Walking Tour of Downtown Toronto | Tourism Toronto

After our weekend getaway in Toronto a couple of weeks ago, Will and I decided to head downtown again. This time, we decided to walk a large chunk of it in order to hit up the spots that were on our list.

Although the walk looks long on Google Maps, it wasn’t tiring because we made stops along the way, including at Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada, Graffiti Alley, and Nathan Phillips Square (right in front of Toronto City Hall).

Ripley’s Aquarium
From touching stingrays to spotting sharks in the “Dangerous Lagoon” (which has the longest moving sidewalk in North America), Will and I soaked up every bit of the experience.

The aquarium is located right below the CN Tower and is very close to the Rogers Centre. They’re both iconic Toronto landmarks, but I highly recommend visiting the CN Tower if you have the chance. You’ll get an amazing view of the whole city from above.

A Weekend Getaway in Toronto | Tourism Toronto

My boyfriend, Will, and I moved to the Toronto suburb of Markham only two years ago, but we still love heading down to the city (only 20 minutes away) to enjoy everything it has to offer, from the museums and major landmarks to the up-and-coming restaurants.

Toronto is the perfect getaway destination for urban-minded couples like us who love to explore cities. Being such a vibrant and diverse place, Downtown Toronto is where everyone goes to experience the liveliness, explore the streets, and discover new shops.

Will and I recently ventured downtown for a weekend getaway to visit two popular Toronto landmarks – Kensington Market and the Toronto Islands.
