Laugh at Second City
One of the world's premier comedy clubs is right here in Toronto. Second City has been providing laughs for over half a century, and in the process launched many world-famous comedians' careers. Catch a show at this cozy venue for an evening full of fun.
Catch a Game or Show at Rogers Centre

Visit Kensington Market
Kensington market is the bohemian center of Toronto. Visit the neighbourhood's eclectic collection of cool coffee shops, independent boutiques, and great bars and restaurants.
Root for the Maple Leafs
Toronto's ice hockey team, the Maple Leafs, play from October - April at Air Canada Centre, and attending a game is a classic Toronto experience. Check their site for a full game schedule.
Hockey Hall of Fame
Canada's favorite sport is best experienced at the arena, but if you can't make it to a game nothing beats a visit to the Hockey Hall of Fame near the Harbourfront.
