Perched across the street from the ROM (or the Royal Ontario Museum, to be official), Museum Tavern is a great spot to rest weary gams. The nostalgic brasserie is outfitted with a copper ceiling and tufted stools by the bar. Undoubtedly, these...

Canada's metropolis isn't just skyscrapers and multinationals, apparently. Welcome to Graffiti Alley, or as the locals call it, Rush Lane. Canada's largest outdoor art gallery (from Spadina Avenue to Portland Street) is located in the...

List this under "very cool installations." The best part about the "wavedeck" is that you can slide on it (because you know you want to). It's a great, interactive gathering place at water's edge, and it plays on that theme in a whimsical way.
