Nightlife

Toronto offers some of the best nightlife in Canada. It is a major capital for English language theatre. Also, there is a lively bar scene in the city as well as some 1st class “ultra-lounges” that would fit right in with some Las Vegas hotspots. If the Blue Jays are in town, one should definitely visit the Rogers Centre for some baseball, hot dogs, and beer. Tickets are very inexpensive. Also, Toronto has a very vibrant music scene. It is not uncommon to catch big-name acts at the city’s various music festivals during the summer.

Theatre

One of the little known centres of world theatre, Toronto is on par with the West End of London and Broadway in New York. The heart of the Toronto theatre district is Dundas Street in downtown Toronto.

Hockey Hall of Fame

Visiting the Hockey Hall of Fame is a must for any fan of Ice Hockey or general sports nut. A whole array of uniforms from the NHL and International game is on display as well as relics from the members (such as Wayne Gretzky and Brett Hull) of the Hall of Fame. Some of the many highlights include interactive slap shot games, a replica of the Montreal Canadians locker room and the Stanley Cup.
