  • Hockey Hall of Fame
    Hockey is one of Canada's favourite sports, so if you're in Toronto it's definitely worth checking out the Hockey Hall of Fame. Learn about some of the nation's favourite players or try your hand at the game itself, on one of the city's outdoor ice rinks.

The best times to visit Toronto are during the shoulder season months of April, May, September and October.

The winter months are particularly cold and snowy, so usually draw a lot less people.
