We always visit Art Galleries when we travel. This one was nice, had some good exhibits, and a fun thing to do while our teenagers slept in.

The AGO, like many museums and galleries, has top notch exhibits and LOTS to see. Almost too much to take in for one visit, but that could lead to a number of return visits.

Great new architecture. The space really allowed the art to be shown at its best. I especially enjoyed the Canadiana rooms that were arranged chronologically, Canada's depicted history paralleling Canada's artistic history. The fourth floor had a special exhibition by Canadian minority artists expressing a...More

Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the
largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas
Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a
wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs
and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun.
Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with
people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and
products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces
