Toronto has one of the best art scenes that I’ve ever seen in my life. Contrary to popular belief, some software developers actually do care about that sort of thing. Software isn’t our entire lives, and we can appreciate the stuff that artists bring to the table. I’ve really appreciated what I’ve seen in Toronto since I’ve been here. Toronto has a lot of intellectual entertainment in general. You’ll see some of the best of Canadian theater here, and plenty of great live music options. The movie theaters and sports stadiums didn’t disappear as a result, of course, and Toronto is pretty well-equipped in terms of entertainment options in general. If you really want to experience a little culture on the weekends or even weeknights, Toronto definitely has you covered.
Of course, a lot of the people who want to visit Toronto will usually start by going sightseeing. Toronto may not have as many famous landmarks as some cities, but it’s certainly no slouch when it comes to great things to see with one’s own eyes. Almost everyone visits the CN tower at some point or another. I don’t blame them. It really is awe-inspiring, especially when you see it for the first time. You definitely get used to it after a while, so I recommend seeing it firsthand just after you arrive in Toronto. If you visit it at any point afterwards, the magic is probably going to be gone.
If you’re a hockey fan, you’ll probably want to go to the Hockey Hall of Fame at some point or another. I’m not a hockey fan, and I’ve had to be quiet about that ever since I first moved to Toronto. Still though, even I wouldn’t mind going to see the Hockey Hall of Fame, soaking up everyone else’s boundless enthusiasm. If you’re a museum person like I am, you are pretty much going to have your pick of museums. Toronto may not have any museum that’s as famous as the Louvre, but the McMichael Canadian Art Collection will work well enough on a rainy day. Toronto is a great place to visit, and, in a stunning twist, you would want to live there.
