Toronto is known as a city of neighborhoods – this is one of the many reasons it's an excellent choice for a vacation. Apartment rentals in Toronto allow you to make one of its many neighborhoods your own, while Toronto's easily walkable streets, accessible trams and buses, and minimal but perfunctory underground line allow you to easily access the rest of the Canadian city, no matter where your vacation homes in Toronto happen to be.
Hang with the University Crowd in the Annex
Toronto's Annex is a favorite hangout spot for local students at nearby University of Toronto. Dive bars are scattered all along Bloor Street, amongst them live music venues, great places for a quick bite to eat, and shops and boutiques. Accommodations in this area are fairly well priced as well, making this a great area to choose for cheap apartments and vacation rentals in Toronto – provided you don't mind running into drunken students on your way home.
Explore the Harbourfront
The Harbourfront is the closest that Toronto has to a tourism center, but unlike many other large metropolises, you won't be fighting for space on the sidewalk here. The Harbourfront is home to Toronto's most famous monument, the CN Tower, which affords views of the entire city from the top. You'll also find the Rogers Centre stadium, if you want to catch a game. The St. Lawrence Market is Toronto's top farmer's market, the perfect place to spend an afternoon. And the Distillery District affords excellent choices in bars, cafés, and restaurants.
Exploring the Great Outdoors on Toronto's Islands
When you've finished exploring the Harbourfront, jump on the nearby ferry to explore the Toronto Islands. This small chain of islands just offshore from the city centre are home to parkland, an amusement park, and a few beaches. There are even a few residents of the island, though it's very rare to find rooms for rent or house rentals on the island itself. That said, it's a lovely place to get away for a bit over the course of your holiday. A public bicycle sharing station at the ferry terminal will help you get around, as there are no cars allowed on the island except for a few service vehicles. If biking isn't really your thing, you might want to try boating instead – canoes, kayaks, and paddle boats can all be rented on the island. When Toronto has beautiful weather, the locals flock here, and you'd do well to do the same.
