- Visit the CN Tower
Some people say it’s one of the world’s best wonders in the modern world. The CN Tower is about 1815 ft long (553 m). There are so many options for fun things to do, including dining and sightseeing. Yet, the most popular activity of all at the CN Tower is EdgeWalk. This is not for the faint-hearted, but it’s for the adventurers out there who love a little bit of edge living (pun intended). EdgeWalk is an activity where groups of 6 stand 116 feet up above the ground, where people test their ability to lean back as far as they can at this tremendous height while being held safely by a harness and a trolley. It’s a Canadian trademark, so you simply can’t go to Toronto without visiting CN Tower.
- Go Golfing
Golf is a great sport that helps you clear your mind while you’re basically playing a sport. The most famous golf club in Toronto is the Toronto Golf Club, and whether you’re a beginner or an expert, you will find the equipment needed to play. For beginners who want to give golf a try and looking for a beginner set of irons, you can always check the golf clubs reviews on the internet or ask the people at the club for suggestions. And if you don’t get the hang of it the first time, you can always go again and practice. Just hanging out on vast areas of greenland is worth going golfing for, let alone the coolness of the sport.
