Summer Nights: The Ultimate Toronto Night According To JustFly
Toronto is one of the World’s largest cities. It comes as no surprise that having a great night out is second nature to those who know how to navigate the seas of Toronto’s nightlife.
While a rookie coming in can be easily overwhelmed by the sheer magnitude of the city, I decided to prepare myself accordingly. I reached out to JustFly, an online travel company. Experts on major cities like Toronto, JustFly was able to put together an epic evening in Toronto.
Built in 1976, the CN Tower is the highlight of the Toronto skyline. One of the most photographed structures in the country, the CN Tower, when built, was the tallest free-standing structure in the world. While it has since been surpassed, it remains an iconic landmark that draws in a huge amount of visitors.
While the glass floors and other attractions are neat, the ultimate experience according to JustFly’s review is to make sure you eat dinner in the top pod of the tower.
Why? Because this glass-walled, rotating resto gives you perhaps one of the greatest views possible of Toronto’s downcode core. While it is pricey getting up the tower and then eating, you won’t find a better vantage point for a dinner.
Directly below the CN Tower is The Roger’s Centre. Formerly called The SkyDome (obviously a way better name), The Roger’s Centre is home to one of Canada’s hottest sporting tickets, the MLB’s Toronto Blue Jays.
The resurgent Jays, who are among the league’s best teams, have become required viewing for someone visiting Toronto. The Roger’s Centre itself is part of this.
A technical marvel upon its completion in 1989, The Roger’s Centre is the first stadium ever built with a fully retractable roof and includes a 348 room hotel that overlooks the field, giving you an excellent place to stay as well. But, visitor beware, baseballs have made their way into the suites of hotel-staying baseball lovers!
Located in downtown Toronto, Yonge-Dundas Square is ground-zero for great times in Toronto. Opened in 2002, Yonge-Dundas Square jumpstarted development in the area, making it a go-to location for those looking to shop, eat, or take in major public events.
Festivals you can check out in the square include NXNE (the Northern neighbour of Austin’s SXSW), the Toronto Independent Film Festival, Luminato, Nuit Blanche, and Pride Week ceremonies.
