Top 5 Things to Do After Moving To Toronto
Moving to a new city, country, or even continent can be equally overwhelming as it is exciting.
Most people tend to feel comfortable once they have put roots down in a place, and the chance of them uprooting themselves is slim. That means the average person will only know one city for their entire life – how sad.
If you recently moved to Toronto, you are not a part of that sad statistic. You are one of the brave ones.
Take the time to unwind and enjoy the magical city you now call home. Below are the top five tips from Torontonians to help you get settled and enjoy the best of what their gorgeous city has to offer:
1. Join Groups
The best way to know where and when to visit a place in Toronto is by asking the people who have lived there longer than you have. Look on social media and ask around for neighborhood groups you can join.
Most groups are themed, so join a few to get to know the best parts of the city in the quickest time possible.
You will want to join an outdoor group for fun activities, a foodie group for all things delicious in Toronto, and lastly, an events group – to stay updated on everything happening in the city.
2. Find Your Favorite Coffee Place
Toronto locals and most residents are huge fans of the humble coffee bean.
In the weeks to come, your mind will get blown with flavor options and coffee brewing methods that you have probably never seen before. There is a simple explanation here- coffee is a must.
After you have streamlined your new space, explore the city around you and find your favorite coffee place. You will be amazed at how much time you will spend there after you have settled in and fully unpacked.
Exploring Toronto is the most efficient way of getting to know your new city.
It is recommended to visit Toronto using monthly rentals before making the move to this multicultural metropolis.
Once you have found a short-term rental solution that suits your needs, you can spend more time getting out and about in the city. Toronto is filled with experience opportunities of a lifetime, so do not become a couch potato – get out there and explore.
4. Visit The CN Tower
The minute you see Toronto’s skyline, your eye will get automatically drawn to the CN Tower. It stands at a staggering height of over 550 meters, making it the tallest free-standing structure in the Western Hemisphere.
CN Tower uses the 1776 steps of its record-breaking staircase for fundraising twice a year. By opening to the public on these two occasions, participants can test their strength and endurance, all while raising funds for the WWF of Canada or for the United Way of Greater Toronto.
If that is not your thing, just go visit for the views because they are truly breathtakingly beautiful.
5. Go Shopping
Toronto is home to some great spots for excellent shopping. From world-class luxury brands to artisanal creations, there is something for everyone to fall in love with.
Visit the ten best places to go shopping in Toronto, and do not worry if the winter weather takes a turn for the worse – there is a network of almost 20 kilometers where one can safely (and warmly) shop underneath the city.
There is so much to see and do in Toronto, you just need to be willing to get out there and find it.
