Vocier's toronto city guide 


  • Kensington Market - this part of town is packed with some of the city's coolest bars, eateries, and shops. A maze of streets and alleyways is packed with brightly-hued Victorian-era houses.
  • St. Lawrence Market - 120+ food vendors selling food, ready-to-eat treats, and arts/crafts. It’s as much a place to shop as a community hub—check the program of cooking classes, workshops, and lectures.                                                                                                             
  • Scarborough Bluffs - hiking, a beach, and epic views of Lake Ontario.
  • Queens Quay – On the waterfront with cool sights like the Music Garden and Ripley's Aquarium, Steam Whistle Brewery, and a fun arcade, The Rec Room.

Insider Tip: There may be an awesome sporting event to check out depending on the season. T-O boasts the Raptors, the Bluejays, and the Maple Leafs.


Pro Tip: Do not forget to check the covid restrictions, some sights may require reservations or pre-booking.
