Just outside of Union Station, easily accessible by foot or subway from The Beverley, the home of the Blue Jays is one of the main draws of tourism to our city. If you’re not already visiting just to watch a game, consider checking one out if you’ve got a free afternoon. On sunny days the roof fully retracts and you can enjoy sunshine, beer, and hot dogs in the all American pastime that frankly isn’t all American. And when the Jays are doing well? Watch for the good attitude of the fans to expand out into the rest of the downtown core. www.rogerscentre.com
Smaller and more specialized than the ROM, the Gardiner Museum is Canada’s premier ceramics museum. Take a chance on the exhibits and you’ll come to appreciate something which is a hugely overlooked part of our everyday life. At The Beverley, we always appreciate quality over quantity. www.gardinermuseum.on.ca
Sports fan? Not a baseball fan? Think it’s just a game where you watch nothing happen while drinking beer and eating bad nachos? Why not drink beer and eat bad nachos while watching something a little faster with the Toronto Maple Leafs or Toronto Raptors? The Scotiabank Arena, formerly known as the Air Canada Centre- The ACC, is located just on the other side of Union Station from Rogers Centre. Head west, head east, we don’t care, you’re going to have a great time either way. Oh also, they have concerts. scotiabankarena.com/
One of a thousand things that is just a subway trip away, stop off at Dupont Station to see one of Toronto’s premier attractions, Casa Loma. This ancient castle has been haunting Toronto for centuries, and is now a historical site to be crawled over by anyone who has any interest in history whatsoever. You can get around with a guided tour, or just grab an audio guide and roam free. Seasonal events occur almost nightly, including symphonies and haunted houses for the braver souls. If you’re coming to stay with us as a couple, it’s always worth grabbing a couple cheesy couple shots out in the gardens overlooking the city, but be aware that you won’t be the only ones. casaloma.ca
Art Gallery of Ontario
One of the closest attractions to The Beverley, the Art Gallery of Ontario is just north of us. On a beautiful sunny day, stroll up Beverley street, through Grange Park, and take a look at the modern and startlingly blue design of the AGO. Take a peek inside at any one of the museums permanent and temporary exhibits. Make sure to check out the Canadian art section if you want to see some of the world’s finest art and feel your blood turn into a mixture of maple syrup and honestly just average beer. www.ago.net
Royal Ontario Museum
Traditional and modern designs clash spectacularly inside and out of Toronto’s largest museum. Great for families, but better for couples who want to say they’re cultured regardless of whether they are or not. Check out its website to find out about special exhibits. One of our favorite places to spend a day when it’s raining or snowing or sunny or anything really. www.rom.on.ca
St. Lawrence Market
Take a short subway trip to King Station, and hit up St. Lawrence market anytime of the week except Sunday & Monday, and you’ll find of the largest and freshest food markets you’ll ever see. An absolutely amazing place to take a stroll through, mooching off free samples of wine and cheese, or grabbing all the ingredients for a picnic lunch and then hitting up Toronto Islands. Personal recommendation? Try the Peameal Bacon Sandwich—you’ll know which one. stlawrencemarket.com
Centreville Theme Park
Take a beautifully tranquil ferry ride over to Centre Island, and walk around a little before heading on over to Centreville Theme Park. Tamer than Canada’s Wonderland, and more thrilling than the subway, it’s a perfect way to while away a summer day. www.centreisland.ca
The CN Tower is Toronto’s most visible attraction, standing five hundred and fifty three metres tall with a full three hundred and sixty degree view of the city. On a clear day, which Toronto has in spades come summer time, it possible to see the state of New York from it’s multiple observation decks. While The Beverley boasts one of the slowest elevator rides in the city, the CN Tower will make you miss us with elevators that travel upwards at speeds of twenty two kilometres an hour. These elevators have glass panels in the floors to let guests really appreciate their newfound sense of vertigo. At the top, daring visitors can check out the Edgewalk, which is exactly what it sounds like, and their more sane companions can sit down for a bite to eat at either Horizons or the 360 Restaurant. Stunning views, fantastic food, and a short fifteen minute walk south from the hotel, we highly recommend checking out the iconic CN Tower. www.cntower.ca
Hockey Hall of Fame
Alright, so hockey’s your thing. Maybe you’re here for a Leaf’s game, maybe you’re here for the Marlies, maybe you’re a friend of someone who’s a lot more into it than you. Either way, you’ve got to appreciate the Hockey Hall of Fame. Over sixty five thousand square feet of hockey history, the Hall of Fame’s location close to Scotiabank Arena and St. Lawrence Market make it a great place to spend the day before an event. Hype up before the game with all of it’s exhibits, interactive and non-interactive. www.hhof.com
Eaton Shopping Centre
It’s hard to come to downtown Toronto without missing the Eaton Shopping Centre. It’s the busiest mall in North America, with more annual visitors than Central Park, and it’s bigger than most small towns. Accessible all year, and connected to Toronto’s PATH, it’s also adjacent to another can’t miss attraction, Yonge and Dundas square. With open air events such as free concerts, festivals, and gatherings, no matter where you go for several blocks, you’re going to find good food, good shopping, and good fun. www.cfshops.com/toronto-eaton-centre.html
Nathan Phillips Square
The Nathan Phillips square is the forecourt of Toronto’s gorgeous City Hall, and definitely worth checking out. Visit their website to see what kind of events are going in the square. In the winter, you’ll be able to tie on some skates on the converted outdoor skating rink, and in the spring, summer and fall, a weekly farmer’s market is always worth checking out. Honestly though, it’s so close to the hotel, and City Hall is so well designed, that it’s worth just taking a look. www.toronto.ca/data/parks/prd/facilities/complex/1089/index.html
Ripley"s Aquarium of Canada
Right at the base of the CN Tower is Ripley’s Aquarium, for all your fish loving needs. One of the highlights of this attraction, besides it’s convenient location a walk away from us, and besides that it’s an even shorter walk from both the CN Tower and Rogers Centre; besides all that, is it’s underwater tunnel. Board a moving sidewalk and gaze up as sea life swims serenely overhead. Then go touch a stingray. It’s not as scary as it sounds. ripleyaquariums.com/canada

One of the key attractions of Toronto Islands is the numerous beaches that stretch along its northern face. Of particular note are Ward’s beach, a fifteen minute walk from Centre Island, but worth it for the relative seclusion of the main beaches. After swimming a bit, grab a bite to eat and a drink at the Rectory and watch sailboats drift across the water. Or do the opposite of all that, and head on over to Toronto’s only clothing-optional beach, Hanlon’s Point. Why not?
North of the hotel, easily walkable, is one of the most diverse districts in all of Toronto, which is really saying something. There’s too much stuff packed into these few city blocks to mention in one paragraph, but in short, they’ve got food, clothes, tattoos, and drinks. Get a haircut at Crow’s Nest Barbershop, eat an empanada at the justly name Jumbo Empanadas, or grab some deliciously delectable donair at Otto’s Berlin Doner. www.kensington-market.ca
