There are occasional “casual concerts” when the orchestra dresses down, masterworks concerts, light classics, pops, new creations and young people’s concerts offered throughout the year. It is time to get outside, so head over to Toronto Island Park via ferry to enjoy a day out of the city while being only minutes from it. There are actually three islands: one for families with an amusement park (best for young children), one with beautiful beaches and one for simply strolling, bicycling and having a light lunch at the Rectory Café. You will be able to enjoy stupendous views of the city skyline across the water from anyplace in the park.

Formerly known as the Art Museum of Toronto, the Art Gallery of Ontario is one of the largest art museums in North America. The Canadian collection in particular is worth viewing and includes one of the largest Inuit art collections in the world. Masterpieces of European art take their place beside decorative arts, ship models and a comprehensive collection of contemporary art. A separate photographic gallery and special exhibitions round out the museum’s offerings. Admission is free on Wednesday evenings and there are special film screenings at various times. It used to be the city hall, but shopping is on the agenda these days at the St. Lawrence Market. It offers an assortment of eclectic goods you will rarely find anywhere. On Sundays the North Market becomes antiques central, where young hip designers rub elbows with seasoned antiques pros. The Market Gallery is a mini-museum that tells about the building’s Victorian past as well as hosting changing exhibits. In the South Market you will find the freshest of farmer’s markets, and you can use the ingredients you purchase there if you take one of the workshops offered next door at the Market Kitchen.
