I booked a weekend trip to Toronto for Canada Day / 4th of July weekend. I haven’t been to Toronto in probably 10-15 years (we used to do a lot of family vacations there as a kid). I know the usual Blue Jays game and CN Tower tourist attractions, but what else should I do (or definitely missed out on as a 15 year old on a family vacation..)???

The Distillery District, Kensington Market, Yonge Dundas Square, Harbourfront, King West for great restos and clubs, Queen St East for the shopping! Go on blogto.com for plenty of top 10 lists. Have fun!

Wards Island for the day, Fireworks at the Beach, shopping Yorkville or Queen East & Ossington, High Park for an afternoon walk, Canada’s Wonderland, dinner at the CN Tower 360 restaurant.
Cabana pool bar if you like to hit the clubs or Thompson hotel has an amazing rooftop bar with infinity pool. Oasis on king has a great rooftop patio some fun pations in Yorkville (Pilot, Hemmingways).

If you plan on doing touristy things you can buy a city pass that gives you access to most of the main attraction
I really do suggest Ripleys Aquarium

Imay be biased since its our favourite place to travel to (1.5 hrs away from us) but you have to visit niagara falls and our favourite, Niagara-on-the-Lake.
So many amazing wineries, we got married almost a year ago at Chateau des charmes, we got engaged at Caroline Cellars( both our favourite) and ravine is pretty amazing, 2 sisters, Pellar , downtown Niagara-on-the-Lake..amazing meals at Caroline Cellars( low key but delicious food and poutine), wood oven pizza at ravine, amazing 3-5 course scrumpious-best-meal-you-will-ever-have at pellar estates, wood oven pizza downtown Niagara at antiga pizza, also a little more pricey, but the watermark on the top of the hilton or the brasa in the hilton niagara!
Check groupon, but they also have lunch and evening cruises around toronto with lunch and dinner with not bad pricing on groupon you could get for the weekend!
Good luck and enjoy toronto and the toronto area!

i would also suggest a day in Niagara on the Lake and Niagara Falls!
And then I’m a sucker for the Royal Ontario Museum and Casa Loma

Thanks! We’re doing both Niagara Falls and Niagara-on-the-Lake too — I’ve been there probably 5 times in the last 5 years, so I know where to go and what to do there (and have some family in the area I’ll be meeting up with). I do love Pellar, but I’ll have to check out those other wineries you mentioned too!
