Toronto is the arts and culture hub of Canada and is one of the largest cities in the country. It's nestled along the picturesque shores of Lake Ontario, and its striking skyline is a shining line of steel and glass piercing the sky. From the CN Tower to the Eaton Centre shopping mall, major sports arenas, and renowned musical theatre productions, there's a whole world of things to experience. The biggest question for those renting apartments in Toronto isn't what to do first, but rather how to do everything in a limited time.

Check out Old Toronto for the roots of the city

Old Toronto is the name for Toronto's original city limits from 1834 to 1998. This historic area is the administrative district of the city where you'll find the site of the original Crystal Palace that was modelled after the structure of the same name in Hyde Park, England, and the very first exhibition hall built in Toronto in the 19th century. It has since been replaced by the Horticulture Building, itself a historic structure. This area makes for a great base of operations for your trip with an apartment on the shores of the lake.

Explore North York to enjoy museums, shopping, and more

Rent an apartment in North York to stay in the educational and cultural heart of the city. Here you'll find tons of entertaining and educational museums, a soccer stadium where you can catch a match in season, and some of the best shopping and dining in Toronto. While here, bibliophiles will love the Toronto Public Library, and Canada's Wonderland provides fun for the entire family. Apartments in North York offer a range of activities for couples, families, and even larger groups, combined with plenty of space, ultramodern furnishings, and views of the city that will take your breath away.

Downtown apartments offer Toronto's heart and soul

The downtown area is the heart and soul of any city, and Downtown Toronto is no different. Here you'll find dizzying views from the top of the CN Tower, more museums than you can count, tons of trendy bars, clubs, and a hopping nightlife, and outstanding shopping. You can also go on a dinner cruise on the lake, walk along the harbourfront with your beloved to watch the sunset, or check out the children's theatre for a quirky live performance the entire family will love. Sports, shopping, dining, and more are all right here waiting for you in downtown Toronto.

Try an apartment near Rogers Centre for sports and fun

Home of the Toronto Blue Jays MLB team, Rogers Centre (also known as SkyDome) is the pro baseball park within Downtown Toronto. An apartment here allows you to catch a Blue Jays game during the season, or you can book a stadium tour to see what goes on behind the scenes during games. This world-class entertainment venue also hosts live shows and events year-round, so even if you're not a baseball fan, you might catch a national musical act or other performance here. It's one of the major attractions in Toronto, and it's not far from a posh, modern Toronto apartment rental.

Explore the hidden gem of Etobicoke

Music fans coming to visit Toronto will want to look into an apartment rental in Etobicoke. This region is a city unto itself not far from the Downtown area, and it's home to a wide range of great live-performance venues. It's also within easy reach of many of the attractions of the region, including the Centennial Park Golf Centre, Fantasy Fair, and Ontario Place, where you can enjoy days' worth of fun and entertainment for the entire family. An apartment in Etobicoke offers plenty of comfort with immediate access to all this and more.

Scarborough apartments offer family fun and adventure

A trip to Scarborough puts you in the heart of one of the most creative communities in Toronto. This area of the city has been home to such notable celebrities as Mike Myers, Eric McCormack, Jim Carrey, John Candy, and even the rock group Barenaked Ladies. It's also just minutes from the Toronto Zoo, one of the top zoos in Canada. It's the home of the Scarborough Worldwide Film Festival as well as the Scarborough Music Theatre and the Scarborough Players. It doesn't get much better than a modern, updated apartment for rent in Scarborough.
