Calling all urban explorers, culture enthusiasts and sightseers — good times of all kinds await you and your loved ones with this DreamBreak in Toronto, a city brimming with amazing things to do and see. Make your own fun and discover the heart of downtown at your own pace with a hop-on-hop-off City Sightseeing®
bus tour. Good for 48 hours, your pass lets you hop on the open-top double-decker bus to see the city’s many highlights and then hop off at locales that catch your interest* — with 20 different stops in total to explore, the choice of attraction or activity is all yours.
You can follow the whole loop starting at Yonge-Dundas Square (stop No. 1), a Times Square-style public plaza across the street from popular shopping mecca, Eaton Centre. Heading northward, you’ll reach the lively intersection of Yonge and Bloor streets. Continue north to Casa Loma (stop No. 7) to check out the stunning Gothic-style architecture of this historic landmark. Along Bloor Street, see city highlights like Bata Shoe Museum (stop No. 9), which tells the fascinating history of footwear, and Yorkville (stop No. 10), an upscale shopping district that’s home to Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) and Gardiner Museum. Even if you don’t go inside the ROM (at your own expense), you’ll want to snap pics in front of the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal, a modern extension of glass and steel that resembles a crystal jutting out from the original 100-year-old building. It’s a spectacular sight!
Elsewhere along the route, you can stroll through and admire the distinctive characteristics of Chinatown and Kensington Market neighborhoods (stop No. 11), where you’ll also find the impressive Art Gallery of Ontario, one of the largest galleries in North America. Consider spending time at the Distillery District (stop No. 20), a National Historic Site. This open-air pedestrian area is known for cobblestone streets, the award-winning Mill Street Brewery, galleries, boutiques, restaurants and well-preserved Victorian-era buildings. Get off a couple stops before at the Hockey Hall of Fame (stop No. 18), which celebrates top players in professional ice hockey, and so much more.
During your travels, be sure to set aside some time for the CN Tower (stop No. 14 on the north side and stop No. 16 on the south side). It’s one of Canada’s most visited attractions and a bucket-list destination for many. Take a high-speed ride in a glass-fronted elevator to the tower’s observation deck and brave the Glass Floor where you can look straight down to the ground 1,122 feet (342 meters) below — talk about a new perspective on the city! Of course, if you’d rather, you can always just sit back and enjoy your 360-degree panoramic views in comfort.
