Attractions and Accommodations:
Walking a few blocks in any direction from the Metro Toronto Convention Centre (MTCC) will take you to just about every attraction and accommodation that makes Toronto one of the world’s most dynamic destinations.
Next door to the MTCC is the CN Tower, a worldwide symbol of Toronto’s uniqueness. The CN Tower also has the renowned 360 Restaurant located at the top of the tower, along with breathtaking views of Toronto. The newest edition is the fantastic Edgewalk.
Also located next door is Ripley’s Aquarium, the Air Canada Centre and the Rogers Centre, home to the Toronto Blue Jays.
A few steps to the South will take you to the lovely Toronto Waterfront, one of the most stunning lake waterfronts anywhere in the World, and one which Toronto residents treasure. Check out great restaurants like the Amsterdam Brewhouse for locally crafted beer and fresh artisan food. Stop by the Harbourfront Centre, which features culturally-rich events year-round. During the summer weekends, the Waterfront Artisan Market offers a unique mix of artisans, chefs and bakers. Hop on the ferry for a short ride to Toronto Island to get away from the city life for a while and enjoy the fantastic lake breezes and stunning skyline views.
A few steps to the north and you’ll find yourself in Toronto’s world-famous entertainment/theater district, surrounded by Toronto’s finest restaurants and clubs. Stop by for a quick symphony at the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. Catch a movie at the the historic ScotiaBank Theater or the newer TIFF Bell Lightbox Theater. If you prefer a good play over the cinemas, look no further than the Royal Alexandra Theatere (look our for the Game of Thrones: The Parody, which debuts a week before the National Vape Show).
A few blocks further north will take you to Queen Street, one of the most diverse and trendy streets in the World. Head west to ‘Queen West’, which has one of the stylish shopping scenes in Toronto against a backdrop of historic buildings. Queen West was literally named the second trendiest street in the World by Vogue.
Head east on Queen and you’ll find yourself at the Eaton Centre. Outside of all of the great shopping at the Eaton Centre, you also have Yonge-Dundas Square, Toronto’s equivalent to New York’s Time Square. Further further down and you’ll find yourself in the east end, where you will find the up-and-coming neighbourhood Leslieville, the Toronto Zoo, the Distillery District, and lovely Old Toronto.
There truly is no shortage of options to explore in Toronto while you are in town for the National Vape Show. We know you will love experiencing this magical city.
