With its rich history of organised sport dating back to the 1770s, Toronto really is a great choice for a sporting getaway. It is home to almost every major professional league in North America, with spectator sports ranging from ice hockey, basketball, baseball to American football. You don't have to be just a spectator either, you can get involved in winter sports such as skating, tobogganing and skiing too!
Our top picks for sporting events start with baseball: get your Toronto Blue tickets now - choose from the San Francisco Giants, Red Sox or the Chicago Cubs and get ready for the incredible atmosphere that awaits you at the Rogers Centre.
If basketball is more your thing, no problem. With tickets on sale for the Cleveland Cavaliers vs the Toronto Raptors at the Scotiabank Arena, take your seats with end-to-end court action, half-time entertainment and of course a very enthusiastic crowd.
And of course a sporting trip to Toronto would not be complete without the fast and furious ice action of the NHL, (National Hockey League). So check out the Maple Leafs, (one of the founding teams of the game), and many more at the Scotiabank Arena as tickets are now on sale for this years' schedule.
All that spectator sport is thirsty work, so be sure to take the Toronto Beer Tour too.
This bustling metropolis is also a great place to take in the towering architecture such as the CN Tower, or walk along the waterfront with over 7,500 restaurants and rich cultural diversity where you can try anything from traditional Canadian cuisine to food from across the globe.
Why not expand your understanding of Canadian food first and book yourself a place on the Canadian Food Discovery at the St Lawrence Market, which includes an introduction to Old Town Toronto, before you start tucking into butter tarts, mustard and pretzel sticks, ginger ale, Montreal-style bagels, cheese curds, pierogies, maple candy, and more!
