It's not just the staggering skyline – which features the iconic spike of the CN Tower – that makes Downtown Toronto such a thrilling place to visit. There's also Yonge-Dundas Square – bathed in neon and the glow of animated billboards, it's the city's answer to Times Square. Jumping bars and clubs await on King Street West, and then there's the PATH – stretching over 28 kilometers, it's the world's largest underground shopping mall.
A city in itself, Markham is revered as one of the tech capitals of Canada – in fact, it's been likened to Silicon Valley. There's history to be enjoyed here as well, though. Markham Museum is an open-air site spread over 25 acres where you can explore perfectly preserved historic buildings. Another thriving community is Richmond Hill – its dozens of public parks make it a perfect place to relax.
Some may think it a suburb, but North York has its share of gleaming high-rises and the vibe can be like that of any busy city. It's home to Toronto Centre for the Arts, a cultural hub where you can catch blockbuster shows and avant-garde plays. The nearby city of Vaughan is where you'll find the epic mall, Vaughan Mills, a place you can easily spend a whole day shopping.
Immaculately preserved, Industrial Era buildings house boutiques, bars, and restaurants in Toronto's charming Distillery District. You really get a sense of the city's history even as you enjoy the artisan bakeries and contemporary art galleries that now exist among the old tank houses and warehouses. Perfect for a wander on a sunny day, the area is also the setting for numerous street festivals over the year.
Combining small-town charm with the bustling attractions of a city, Oakville sits on the cusp of Lake Ontario – you can have an amble by the gentle waters, watch the yachts bobbing in the sun, and relax in a bar or café. If you want to practice your swing, where better than Glen Abbey? Designed by golfing legend Jack Nicklaus, it's one of the most revered courses in Canada.

"Not bad. I'd stay there again!"
Reviewed by a Hotels.com guest on Feb 23, 2013
Service: The front desk clerk was so friendly and helpful! I also loved how in the room itself, they provided small travel-sized pantene 2-in-1 shampoos. The continental breakfast was great! They had a waffle maker and batter! Condition: My overall impression of the room was that it was in good condition. The mattress coverlets desperately need replacing, though. While they seemed crisp, clean and white, it soon became clear that they were unusually lumpy. The stuffing was completely missing in some areas, and clumped in others. Cleanliness: the room did seem clean. The bed smelled fresh and the towels were rolled cutely on the foot of the bed when I arrived. Comfort: I got really hot in the middle of the night when the baseboard heaters turned on. There didn't seem to be a thermostat in the room, or any other noticeable way to shut them off, and none of the windows could be opened. Other than that, I was quite comfortable. Location: it's right downtown, and on a quite street called Pembroke. It's lined with beautiful old Victorian houses and it's a 2 min walk to Dundas to catch a streetcar. Neighbourhood: yeah, it's practically on Sherbourne and Dundas, and there can be some sketchy people around after the sun goes down, but it was lovely in the daytime. I'd definitely stay there again!
