A couple months ago my brother and I went on a trip to Canada, and met so many great people and visited so many great places! In this blog, I’m going to give you a list of my top 5 favorite places you should check out! Also check out my Instagram and Facebook account to see more pictures!!
- Niagara Falls The first place we stopped was on the border of Canada in Niagara Falls, which of course I took a ton of pictures at. I’ve heard that the Canadian side of the Falls is so much better than our side in the US, and those people were right. Niagara Falls is such a beautiful place filled with people from different cultures. It was awesome to meet different people from other countries and learn some new things. Below are some pictures from Niagara Falls! You can also ride in a helicopter around the falls or ride the maid of the mist. The maid of the mist is a boat ride through the falls which is really neat. If you choose to do this, be sure to wear a poncho or a raincoat because you will get wet!
2. Skylon Tower
This tower stands at a height of 775 feet! Skylon Tower opened its doors on October 6, 1965. Outside of the tower are mounted elevators which can carry passengers to the top in 52 seconds. At the top of the tower, there are three floors, two of which are dining areas and the very top is the observation deck. The dining areas are very nice and the floor rotates every hour as well in the lower dining area. There is a Summit Suite Buffet which is amazing, there is so much to choose from and is well worth it! At the observation deck, you will see all of Niagra Falls plus some city sightseeing as well. This attraction is a must if you are planning a trip to Niagara Falls, it’s absolutely worth it.
3. Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO)
This art gallery showcases about 95,000 works from the first century to present day. The Photography selection is one of the larger parts of the gallery, including extensive drawings and paintings as well. This art gallery first opened in 1900 as the Art Museum of Toronto and renamed in 1916. If you are ever visiting Toronto, be sure to visit this amazing art gallery! You wont be disappointed! There is so much history and creativeness here at the Art Gallery of Ontario. They also have an Ice cream stand on your way out which is great!
4. China Town
China Town first appeared in the 1890s with a migration of American Chinese from California. There are a lot of different things to do in china town such as shops, restaurants, activities, historic monuments and even spas which from experience is amazing! You could spend an entire day in Chinatown and still not see everything.
5. Ripley’s Aquarium Toronto
Located in downtown Toronto, this aquarium holds 5.7 million liters of marine and freshwater habitats from all over the world. 20,000 exotic sea and freshwater from more than 450 species are held here. This aquarium is another must see visiting the Toronto area. Click here for your tickets!
