10 Great Things To Do In Toronto This Spring And Summer

Posted: 04/11/2012 7:00 am

After a barely-there winter and a heavy dose of springtime, Toronto's out and about and ready for a nice, long summer. Canada's biggest city -- the population is now pretty much equal to Chicago's at approximately 2.5 million -- continues to evolve and surprise, offering appealing, hip neighborhoods and unusual attractions in town, complemented by a handful of one-of-a-kind destinations just a short drive out of the city. Simply put: There's a ton to see. Here are ten musts.

If you're flying, be sure to check out Porter Airlines, which services close-in Toronto Island Airport, just a few minutes from downtown via free shuttle bus. Porter offers frequent promo codes up to 50% off, which rival Air Canada often matches for flights into Pearson Airport.

Toronto, tame? Say that after you hit the city's newest attraction, EdgeWalk. How does it work? You pay $175, you put on a harness and get hooked to a guide rail. Then someone pushes you out the window of a 116-story tower, where you spend approximately half an hour staring down at the city below, with nothing but a little see-through ledge at your feet. If you're not almost throwing up in terror at the prospect (we kind of are), you can find out more at EdgeWalk's site.
