You’re sure to love Toronto so much that you’ll be looking at Toronto townhouses and homes for sale so you could move to this fantastic city. Follow our lead and hit up a few of these awesome locations for an unforgettable journey.

Toronto Islands

9 Queens Quay West, Toronto

While Toronto is a busy city with much to do, sometimes you need to get away and relax. The Toronto Islands are only a short ferry ride away from the mainland and provide a soothing, natural atmosphere for visitors to enjoy. This destination is comprised of three connected islands - Centre, Ward's, and Algonquin - each one providing a unique experience. You can enjoy a busy day at the amusement park and petting zoo, or take a peaceful bike ride along the scenic shoreline. A visit to the islands also provides you with a picturesque view of the Toronto skyline that you definitely don’t want to miss out on.

Kensington Market

Baldwin Street, Toronto

In the neighborhood of Kensington Market, you’ll find a diverse selection of shops and restaurants to enjoy. Be sure to visit on the last Sunday of the month for a true market experience, where the streets are closed and the neighborhood really comes alive. If you’re interested in fashion, Kensington Market is the place for you, as it is filled with vintage shops and unique finds. These places can be quite expensive though, so if you’re looking to just take a stroll and enjoy the neighborhood, pick up a cup of coffee at a place like FIKA and just take it all in.

Fort York

100 Garrison Road, Toronto

If you’re a history lover like myself, then Fort York is a must-see when visiting Toronto. It is considered the most historic place in all of Toronto, as it is both the place in which Toronto was established as well a place that protected Toronto from the 1700’s through World War II. While this site is extremely well preserves if you’re interested in learning about the lives of soldiers at the time, it can be a less-than-stimulating experience for younger children or those who might be looking for a little more thrill and excitement on your journey. But, as I said, if history is your thing, this is an absolute necessary stop on your journey.

CN Tower

301 Front St W, Toronto

CN Tower was previously declared one of the 7 modern wonders of the world, and it’s easy to see why. Check out the observation deck on this massive tower for an incredible view of surrounding Toronto. A visit to CN (standing for “Canadian National,” the railroad company that built it) Tower must include a walk on Edgewalk, the world’s highest full-circle hands-free walk and one of the coolest, most thrilling things you’ll ever experience. This structure is what makes the Toronto skyline so identifiable, and your trip wouldn’t be complete without making it a necessary stop along the way.
