Heading to Canada’s first city for some relaxation soon? If making the most of a weekend city break in Toronto is your goal, this post will help you do just that…!

Pick a crashing spot that is congruent with your needs

In order to have an excellent weekend in Toronto, picking a hotel that resonates with the kind of experience you wish to have is essential.

In you are looking to be in the thick of the action with regards to sports and major concert events, booking a room at a place like Renaissance Toronto Hotel Downtown will make the most sense, as it is located at One Blue Jays Way – in other words, it is right next to the Skydome (aka Rogers Centre).

Those looking to cheer on the bluebirds to the World Series, support the Maple Leafs in their bid to return to the post season, or watch massively popular musical acts like One Direction, it is a great place to base yourself.

For those seeking to live the high life, then the Toronto Marriott Bloor Yorkville Hotel will be the better choice, as it is situated in the highly fashionable Yorkville district. With exclusive restaurants, nightclubs and boutiques, those looking to enjoy the finer things in life will be well catered for here.

Culture, sports, touristy attractions – Toronto has it all

Being the population centre of Canada has conferred Toronto with some of the best attractions that can be found in the country.

The Royal Ontario Museum is a great place to start for culture hunters, as it is Canada’s largest art gallery. With one of the world most expensive paintings on display (The Massacre of the Innocents by Ruben) and the world’s largest collection of Henry Moore sculptures, it certainly won’t disappoint fans of the arts.

For those looking for sports action, Toronto is Canada’s best city, as it boasts major league action in six major league sports (hockey, baseball, basketball, football, soccer and lacrosse). With an increased hunger to win in this city in recent years, attending a contest of any of these teams will be one that will certainly be filled with excitement.

Tuck into some of the best food in Canada – and from around the world

With citizens from almost every ethnicity on Earth, Toronto has a dining scene that is very difficult for any other alpha world city to beat.

Additionally, with tons of fertile farmland surrounding the GTA, the local food that is available gives local chefs flexibility that food industry professionals in other parts of the globe envy to great degree.

Whether you are tucking into modern reinterpretations of classic Canadian dishes at The Forth, or simply enjoying a guilt free but culturally complex post bar snack at Mamajoun Armenian Pizza, your meals during your weekend in Toronto will likely be a highlight of your trip.
