Toronto, Canada: Best Way To Adventure In The City
The adventure starts with Edgewalk at the CN Tower, the world’s highest outdoor walk on a building (Guinness World Record) at 1,168 feet. Daredevils walk around the entire main pod of the tower hands-free after being harnessed into an overhead safety rail via a trolley system. We eased into the tour by first putting our toes over the edge while watching the city below and finally, leaning straight over the city with our arms stretched out, Titanic style. We then hop on tour with Toronto Bicycle Tours to see the Toronto Islands. We see a dynamite view of the city skyline, Canada’s oldest lighthouse, a petting farm, and residential homes. To wrap up the day, John Lee, who grew up in Chinatown after his family immigrated from Korea, brings an insider perspective. He tells about the strong sense of community here as we wind past all the sights and sounds in the area before making our way to Kensington Market to wrap up the tour.
My passion for travel was unlocked when I spent some years living across Europe and South America. I've never been one to shy away from a new adventure, be it swimming with pigs in the Bahamas, bird watching in the Galapagos or Heli-Hiking in British Columbia. And while I used to mostly travel solo, I now like to hit the road with my 4-year-old son, 1-year-old-daughter and husband in tow. The best part of travel to me now is getting to see the world through their eyes. Whether they are petting goats during an Oregon farm stay or making their very own pizza in Idaho, their enthusiasm and joy never fails to remind me of why I love travel.
