A Canadian Icon

Release Date:

A bustling cosmopolitan centre, Toronto is a Canadian icon. Packed full of culture, with a buzzing nightlife and every culinary particular covered, Toronto has everything for everyone.

Thoughts of Toronto inevitability bring up images of the CN Tower. This iconic building stands 553 meters high; the lift alone is a breath-taking experience. The Spinning 360 degree views from the top, accompanied by a top class restaurant, makes the CN tower a must see.A slightly less dizzying time can be had at Casa Loma, Toronto’s solitary castle. The 98 room mansion boasts traditional chimneys and turrets, and whilst lacking heritage (being built in 1914) the Casa Loma is a sight to see none the less. One further point of interest is Toronto’s city hall, despite being an award winning piece of architecture, much controversy reigns over its design. A chic and nippy Toyota Yaris would be a perfect way to take in the sights of the city.

Due to its diverse ethnic make-up Toronto has culinary delights for every possible taste. One standout location is that of Lee, a French–Asian combination, the slick dimly lit restaurant provides a multitude of culinary wonders. Perhaps slightly less sophisticated but by no means less tasty is Barbeque Smokehouse – thick, slowly cooked brisket, perfect to enjoy on a lazy warm Canadian afternoon. Those of us wanting to taste traditional Canadian cuisine are best sent Gilead Café; using locally sourced ingredients this diner will give you the true taste of Canada.Tour Toronto’s culinary delights in style with one of Green Motions Mercedes A-Class.

Toronto’s night life and urban scene is rightly legendary. The exclusivity and chicness of clubs such as Uniun is equally matched by the futuristic, LED infused experience of Gravity Sound Bar. For those taking a more relaxed approach to their evening’s entertainment the Horseshoe tavern is still a world renowned live music venue, alternatively the Mill Street Brewery’s 13 home brewed beverages can provide any beer connoisseur with an entertaining evening. Make a worthy entrance with a Mercedes-Benz C300.

Escaping the bustling streets for a few days’ excursions could prove to be a hugely rewarding idea. First and foremost, with the Niagara Falls an easy car journey away this natural spectacle is easily worth a visit. The relaxed vineyards surrounding Toronto can also provide days of exploration for those seeking an experience of the finer side of Canadian life. For those wishing to see the city from a different perspective, boat cruises including trip to the many surrounding islands can provide an informative and relaxing tour.
