Toronto; Places to Pay a Visit Once in Life


Steam Whistle Brewery

Steam Whistle Brewery, which is right across from Ripley’s Aquarium. The aquarium is awesome too, but not a match to this place. You must have a pint at this place once in life, especially in the cold days of Canada. Steam Whistle Brewing produces a premium Pilsner lager and it has been voted one of the best microbreweries in Toronto.

Toronto Railway Museum

Just outside Steam Whistle Brewing you’ll find the Toronto Railway Museum. They have a display of trains on site, which is quite popular with families and kids.

Queen Street West

Another area worth checking out is Queen Street West. This used to be a popular spot with university students thanks to its cheap vintage markets, tiny bars, and indie cafes, however in recent years it has become more gentrified. You can still find traces of Queen Street’s artsy side, but in smaller doses.

Graffiti Alley

Graffiti Alley is located right between Queen Street West and Richmond Street West, just west of Spadina Avenue. The area is covered in murals and cool graffiti, and it is full of photographers and Instagrammers looking for the perfect shot.

Distillery District

The Distillery District is one of the most distinct neighborhoods in Toronto. It is home to over forty heritage buildings which were once at the heart of the whisky export. The area has been revitalized and you’ll find lots of cafes, restaurants, galleries, and coffeehouses. This is also the setting for the Toronto Christmas Market in December.
