Five Things To Do In Toronto
Are you the dangerous type? Why not start off your journey to Canada by takin’ a walk on the wild side? EdgeWalk is CN Tower’s most thrilling attraction in its 35 year history, and the first of its kind in North America. It is the world’s highest full circle hands-free walk on a 5 ft (1.5 m) wide ledge encircling the top of the Tower’s main pod, 116 stories above the ground. Visitors walk in groups of six, while attached to an overhead safety rail via a trolley and harness system. Trained EdgeWalk guides will encourage participants to push their personal limits, allowing them to lean back over Toronto with nothing but air and breathtaking views of Lake Ontario beneath them. And that’s just the beginning!
Backyard Axe Throwing League (BATL) offers a uniquely casual urban venue to experience the thrill of axe throwing in leagues, or for private events such as parties and team building. If that doesn’t sound like the most ingenious (possibly slightly dangerous) idea for a bachelor party, what does?
To tone it down just a bit and maybe air on the side of caution, try iFLY Toronto. Here, you can defy the law of gravity and enjoy indoor skydiving in a safe environment. Feeling too squeamish to fly solo? Go with a group of friends or negotiate this experience with a day at the spa for the woman in your life. Who knows? She may enjoy one as much as the other.
For something a bit more relaxing, go for the Bike Tour of Toronto. Now here’s a group of Torontonians who love cycling and love the city. If you love being outdoors and are up for a little adventure, this is the tour for you.
Old Toronto Beer Tour
If you’re all about the lager, this is one you won’t want to miss. The Old Toronto Beer Tour is a fun all-day Saturday tour that explores the culture and history of Toronto against the backdrop of a rich brewing heritage, both past and present. It is a fantastic way to discover Toronto, enjoy some fabulous Lagers and Ales and meet new like-minded friends along the way! You may not want to try this one before the Bike Tour but hey, that’s just a word of advice.
While you’re there this Fall, make sure you take a drive along Canada’s southernmost coastal route. It’s bursting with wonderful cuisine, wine tours, culture and lots of fall colors. There’s definitely something for every autumn adventurer.
