Toronto dubs itself the world’s most multicultural city and with that multiculturalism comes an impressive array of food, art and activities. Try St. Lawrence Market for some local favorites bites, the Royal Ontario Museum for one of the largest museums on the continent and the Distillery District for a Victorian-style industrial setting transformed into chic boutiques and cafés. © Ingalin | Dreamstime.com

Destinations / North America

Start your day with breakfast at St. Lawrence Market at Paddington Pump. Order the famous peameal bacon sandwich and a cup of freshly brewed coffee ($9). You can further explore the market and get snacks for your day’s adventure ($10).

 

Head to Nathan Phillips Square, located in front of Toronto’s City Hall. Depending on the season, you may catch a farmers market, exhibits or ice skating. Walk over to City Hall and take a picture in front of the large “TORONTO” sign. You can tour the building by yourself to see the architecture enjoyed by Canadians daily.

 

Your next stop is the Royal Ontario Museum. With a general admission ticket ($23), you can visit more than 30 galleries displaying a collection of art, culture, and nature. It’s the largest museum in Canada and has beautiful architectural designs to view both inside and outside of the building.

 

Kensington Market is your location for lunch. The market caters to almost every diet, but the recommendation for the day is Sneaky-Dees. Order a Jalisco-style combination plate of enchiladas and tacos, your choice of side and a drink ($25).

 

Head to the Fashion District and explore the many shops. You’ll see musicians performing, and there are a variety of galleries to browse.

 

Dinner is at Tavern Mercatto. Order the margherita pizza and your choice cocktail. Enjoy the view as it is close to the CN Tower ($30).

 

Next, head toward CN Tower, signature building easily recognized by tourists. You can take pics from the ground below and walk around for a bit.

 

Your final stop for the night is Trillium Park. You can walk along the water, and you’ll get a better view of the CN Tower as it lights up and reflects on the water.

Avoid the Crowds with a Second-City Honeymoon

Second-city travel is one of the hottest trends of 2020. It involves avoiding the over-crowded, over-touristed cities that are historically top travel destinations and visiting nearby, lesser-known destinations instead. Travelers are learning that, while well-known destinations are popular for a reason, less-popular cities also have plenty to offer with fewer crowds and cheaper costs.
