Are you now prepared to take your family on a vacation? With new displays that encourage youngsters to learn about Canada’s history, as well as typical Toronto adventures for parents, Canada’s largest city is eager to embrace the whole family. Here’s how to put together the ideal vacation for children and adults alike.
1. Suitable for Children Under the Age of 10
Little Canada, which debuted in August, includes miniature models of Canadian towns and landscapes, such as the European-style buildings and cobblestoned streets of Old Quebec, as well as miniature models of Canadian cities and landscapes, such as the towering Rocky Mountains. The sculpture brings the country’s highlights to life with moving automobiles, trains, and boats, hundreds of LED lights, and miniature people “walking” the streets. Owing to an on-site scanner that produces miniature 3-D copies of visitors, your youngster can even become a piece of these small settings.
Costumed interpreters show visitors what life was like in the 1860s at Black Creek Pioneer Village. Kids can learn to play an instrument, work alongside a tinsmith, or explore a collection of over 2,000 vintage toys.
2. Suitable for Teenagers and Tweens
The EdgeWalk allows children aged 12 and up to walk around the famed CN Tower on an outdoor platform 116 floors above the ground (harnesses and safety equipment are provided).
The Queen Street West district, with its antique shops and eccentric cafés, is ideal for fashion-conscious teenagers looking for activities closer to home. They’ll also be close to the former studios of MuchMusic, the famed Canadian TV channel that, like MTV, launched the careers of several well-known VJs. Walk by and remind the kids about the good old days when you had to wait for a CD to be released.
3. Suitable for Children of All Ages
The Bentway, a year-round trail, and outdoor event space beneath the Gardiner Expressway only feet from Lake Ontario is a great place to take the whole household. Seasonal offers, which vary from an ice rink in the wintertime to a roller rink in the summertime, can be found online.
Head to Kensington Market when the kids have worked up an appetite to try cuisine from all over the world, including Swedish coffee, Baja-style tacos, and Jamaican patties.
It is obvious from the above that taking your family on a trip to Toronto promises to be a lot of fun for everyone in the family.
