“I love Toronto, It’s the best city.” – Jacqueline MacInnes Wood
Toronto, the Queen City of Canada, is one of the most beautiful and well-planned cities in the world. Today, I got a story about how I found a room for rent in Toronto and the places I visited.
Recently, I’ve got 1-month time for a vacation. I didn’t want to go very far. So, I looked for somewhere with places to visit and good food. By the way, I love music too.
So, a combination of three and not so far from my home was my main concern. Suddenly, Toronto came up on my mind and realized that’s a perfect match.
I made my tour plan and started to look for a room in Toronto. I didn’t want to book hotels. Because I thought it’d cost more. Among many room booking sites, I found Roomster very convenient and easy. It saved me a lot of time and money. You can sign up here or you can search below.
So, I looked for rooms in the Old Town which is the birthplace of Toronto. Because the locations that I wanted to visit located near the Old Town. The Town itself has many considerable sites.
From this point on, I’ll tell you about the places in my tour plan. But if you want to know what to consider before booking a room, you must read the guide. I’ve listed almost everything to know before searching and renting a room.
Visiting the City Center
This is the downtown of Toronto. It’s a financial district. But you’ll find many interesting and fun things to do here.
From the Union Station, you can visit the famous CN Tower by a maximum 10-minute walk. And when you’re there, make sure that you visit the Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada also.
I visited the Air Canada Centre and Rogers Centre which was not far from the CN Tower. They are huge and the crowd is amazing. You’ll be able to easily notice them from the CN Tower.
Then you can see Canada’s walk of fame which inspires Canada’s next generation. It’ll inspire you too. As I love music, Mirvish Productions theatre was definitely on my list.
Visiting the Midtown
The Royal Ontario Museum amazed me with its huge collection of Asian arts, artifacts, and architecture. You can also visit the Gardiner Museum for cool ceramic art.
From the love of music, I couldn’t miss the Koerner
Hall which is well known for its impeccable acoustics. You’ll be lost in the sea of sound in no time.
Now, it’s time for some medieval castle experience. Casa Loma was my next destination for ancient turrets and secret passages.
Before I put an end to my journey in the Midtown, I went to the University of Toronto. The beautiful campus has the charm of a newlywed bride.
Visiting the Old Town
If you’re in the Old Town of Toronto, you can’t miss the remarkable St. Lawrence Market zone. There I bought some fresh fruits from the food market which is considered one of the best in the world.
The neighborhood is the oldest with diverse cultural beauties. You’ll find many unique indie shops and cafés.
My wife loves boutiques. So, I went to the King East Design District where I found some wonderful artworks.
The Gooderham “Flatiron” Building will give you the scenic beauty for some pics. After that, I set my plan for the Westside.
Visiting the Westside
The trendsetter is the Westside of Toronto. As my landlord was free for some days, he agreed to show me the attractive Westside.
First, we went to the Fort York for a music festival. We bought some vintage clothes from Kensington Market.
The most heartwarming experience was the nightlife scene of King Street West. With drinks, music, interesting people, you won’t feel bored for a bit.
Visiting the Waterfront & Toronto Islands
For a change, I took a ferry and went to the Toronto Islands. There I enjoyed the amusement park, beaches, and paved trails.
The vibe of sugar beach will freshen you from the inside. If you love cycling, you should rent one and enjoy the Toronto Islands on 2-wheels.
I’m not much into cycling. So, I went to the HTO Park and the Simcoe, Rees and Spadina WaveDecks to take some photos and wonderful memories.
Visiting the Scarborough
Scarborough has the first national urban park in Canada. It’s the Eastside of Toronto. Taste the world-class food here which is the main attraction of this place.
No matter, if you’re a food enthusiast or not, you’ll surely fall in love with the food here. Don’t miss the Guild Park, Gardens sculpture park and the Scarborough Museum before putting an end.
Visiting the Etobicoke
Last but not the least, here we have the Westside to Toronto, named Etobicoke. I put the location at the bottom of my plan but make no mistake as it doesn’t have fewer merits or beauty.
I’d like to call it the gold community. Most jewelers are to be found in this district who specializes in 22 and 24-karat gold.
I loved the South Asian and Caribbean food restaurants here. You can get a bit different experience at Woodbine Racetrack if you like horse racing or at least find interest in it.
Finally, before I go, I spend some quality time at the luxurious Old Mill for an afternoon tea. The calmness of the environment can’t be beaten.
It might be beneficial for you if watch a video on how to find rooms/apartments/flats.
I’d like to thank the official tourism site in Toronto for their mapped out Toronto neighborhood. It helped me a lot to decide where to stay and plan where to go. There were so many things to do and see but 1-month time wasn’t enough for me.
So, search rooms for rent in Toronto and book one today. I ensure that you’ll have a great holiday in Toronto, Ontario. I’ll go there again for the missed opportunities and beauties yet to see.
