Toronto, Ontario: Scenic Trails, Boutique Shopping, and the Hockey Hall of Fame
Toronto is known as a wonderful walking city with eclectic neighborhoods and miles of waterside parkland. Set on the shores of Lake Ontario, the city’s scenic hiking and walking trails wind along the harbor front. From there, a northerly stroll leads to the Fashion District, where warehouses and old factories that sat empty for years now house upscale restaurants, galleries, and boutiques. A bit farther north lies Kensington Market, a bohemian village rife with vintage shops and organic-food markets.
Toronto may be home to Canada’s best collection of museums. Hockey is a national pastime, so it makes sense that the Hockey Hall of Fame is here. Its centerpiece is the hallowed Esso Great Hall, home to the Stanley Cup and portraits of all inductees. Science buffs can stop at the Ontario Science Centre to delve into space at the planetarium or touch a plasma ball at the Science Arcade. The Art Gallery of Ontario exhibits an astounding collection of work from Canadian artists and European masters in a Frank Gehry–designed building that centers on a circular floating staircase.
