During the winter we want to hole up in the house and stay warm. But when the weather starts changing and becoming warmer, the days start becoming longer and we begin to creep out of our home and experience Toronto, and the things our city has to offer.
Here at Snowdon HVAC, we want to give you a few ideas that you can do in the summer months to experience Toronto. This list is comprised of some of the most exciting things to see in North America.
Royal Ontario Museum
If you are interested in art, culture, and natural history, the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, Canada is the place to visit. Being one of the largest museums in North America, and the second largest in Canada, it attracts more than one million visitors every year.
Located north of Queen’s Park in the University of Toronto district, the subway will take you right to it. In preparation of all of the incredible art and culture you’ll experience, the St. George subway station has been decorated to resemble the institutions collection.
Art Gallery of Ontario
If the Royal Ontario Museum hasn’t satisfied your love of art, stop by the Art Gallery of Ontario. This gallery holds over 80,000 works created from the first century to present day. It is 45,000 square metres, which makes it one of the largest galleries in North America.
You’ll be able to appreciate collections from Canadian artists, as well as pieces from the Renaissance and the Baroque eras, plus European, African and Oceanic art, with a modern and contemporary collection to boot!
Ripley’s Aquarium Canada
Have fun in the longest underwater viewing tunnel in North America. With over 5.7 million litres of water and over 100 interactive opportunities, you can get lost spending your entire day at the aquarium. Get up close and personal with three different touch exhibits that feature horseshoe crabs, sharks, and rays!
You’ll also be able to view the daily live dive shows every two hours. Visit their website before going, as they often have discounts and coupons for ticket prices.
Now that you’ve expanded your mind with art and culture, relax a bit with some shopping. Yonge Street is the longest street in the world! What?! That’s right. Not only is that a site in and of itself but many of Toronto’s most famous shopping and entertainment are located on it as well.
At Dundas Square you’ll find movie theatres, and enough store in and around Eaton Centre to keep you busy all day.
You’ve spent your day appreciating art and shopping, now it’s time to take a load off. Head to the Distillery District, which is a commercial and residential district in Toronto. It’s not far from downtown and boasts tons of cafes, restaurants, and shops.
The 13 acre district has more than forty heritage buildings and ten streets and is the largest collection of Victorian-era industrial architecture in North America. Since 1988 the Distillery District has been designated a National Historic Site in Canada.
We hope you do everything you want to this Spring and Summer season, and remember if you need HVAC services, we’re your guys!
