Broadview Hotel

Casa Loma

Casa Loma is one of Toronto's most famous landmarks. Built in 1914 as private residence for Sir Henry Pellatt, it now serves as a museum and landmark. The view from the towers is breathtaking to say the least with a view of the Toronto skyline from this white elephant atop the hill.

CNE Fair

With approximately 1.5 million visitors each year, the CNE is Canada's largest annual fair and the fifth largest in North America. The first Canadian National Exhibition took place in 1879, largely to promote agriculture and technology in Canada. Over the decades, the CNE has now become an annual Canadian family tradition.
