Some people collect art, and some people collect shoes, but what about someone who collects both? Sonja Bata has been collecting fabulous footwear since the 1940s, and the Bata Shoe Museum is now home to her immense collection of over 13,000 shoes and related artifacts. This iconic, world-class museum isn’t just about style—it’s a cultural treasure trove, offering comprehensive exhibitions about the history, development, and function of footwear in societies around the world.

Castles aren’t just for Europe. Toronto has its very own gothic-style castle that overlooks downtown Toronto designed by architect E. J. Lennox. This 98-room chateau was built as a residence for Canadian financier Sir Henry Mill Pellatt, known for bringing hydro-electricity to the streets of Toronto, and it is the largest private residence ever constructed in Canada. Explore secret passageways, a 60-foot tall Great Hall, a private library with 10,000 books, three bowling alleys, elaborately decorated rooms, and five-acres of lush grounds and gardens.
If you love the theater, your trip to Toronto should include a trip to the whimsical Winter Garden Theater. This botanically-themed auditorium, built as a vaudeville stage more than a century ago, will transport you into a lush secret garden, where you’ll sit surrounded by murals of plants, tree trunks, and ceilings of dried beech leaves and wisteria. Located seven stories above the more traditionally decorated Elgin Theater, this beautiful venue is still used for live performances, film premiers, and galas.
If you’re after rest and relaxation on your trip, look no further than the Toronto Islands. Hop on the ferry for a short 10-minute ride to the 15-island archipelago across the island. This magical spot is popular for its stunning cityscape views, sandy beaches, and leafy picnic areas, but there are tons of activities to keep you busy. The islands are packed full of historic sites, artistic retreats, charming cottages, and even an amusement park. You can explore by bike or on foot—the islands are a car-free zone. Less
