Toronto

Toronto's name comes from the First Nations word Tkaronto, meaning "where there are trees standing in the water." Toronto is Canada’s largest city, and is a melting pot of cultures and styles – kids can hear English, French, Cantonese, and Italian spoken most often in the streets. Summer or winter, Toronto has activities for the whole family.

Ride the subway and streetcars – It's so easy to get around Toronto with the TTC network of subway, streetcars and buses. Buy a TTC Day Pass for unlimited trips on the subway, streetcar or bus. On Saturdays and Sundays, a single TTC Day Pass is good for the whole family (2 adults and up to 4 children). Click here for maps and ticket info.

Sports Toronto is a big sports town, with several major league teams. If your kids love watching hockey or baseball live, check out the locals. The Air Canada Centre is near Union Station, Rogers Centre (formerly the SkyDome Stadium) is just a couple blocks from the CN Tower. If this is a "must do" for your family, you may want to buy your tickets well in advance to be sure of getting in.
