Toronto is a city that offers a little something for everyone’s taste, interests and budget. That’s why we’re excited to return to Canada’s most populous city on November 4th and 5th for the last stop of Brian Buffini’s Success Tour 2014, a high energy real estate event intended to give high-performing real estate professionals the knowledge and motivation they need to thrive in the new era of real estate. Get inspired by Brian, Joe Niego and special guest, best-selling author Les Brown. However a trip to the city isn’t complete without a visit to the following sites.
Feeling daring? Check out the EdgeWalk in the CN Tower, the tallest free-standing structure in the entire western hemisphere at 1,815 feet. Challenge your limits with a walk on EdgeWalk, a hands-free walk on the outside ledge of the CN Tower. If being tethered to the side of a building isn’t for you, you can still enjoy breathtaking views of the city from the SkyPod and look down through the Glass Floor.

Enjoy local food and culture. Located in the Old Town Toronto, the St. Lawrence Market Complex features a mix of specialty food, artisans, art and the Saturday farmers’ market. The three buildings that comprise the complex have been the site of trade and commerce for more than 200 years.
Brookfield Place is another spot to check out that features a variety of shops and restaurants and the Hockey Hall of Fame. What makes it unique is the architecture of the building, which makes the perfect backdrop for art exhibitions and installations that tour the country. The Allen Lambert Galleria is an example of light-filled modern design.
Immerse yourself in the local culture. Toronto is home to diversity of unique neighborhoods. Visit Old Town (St. Lawrence/Distillery district), to get a glimpse of Toronto’s past and embrace the revitalization of the area or head underground and shop at the PATH, the underground city located beneath the financial district. Absorb the tastes and culture of Little India, Little Italy, Greektown, Little Poland, Koreatown and Chinatown. Escape the central city by ferry and check out the Toronto Islands or enjoy the harbor in the Harbourfront district.
Get in touch with your royal side. Everyone loves a castle, right? Built in the early 1900s by prominent businessman, Sir Henry Pellatt, Casa Loma has been dubbed Toronto’s Camelot. After finding investment success in railroads, mining, land and electricity, Pellatt was determined to build the castle of his dreams. Casa Loma is everything you’d want in a medieval castle without the jetlag of a half day’s journey. Unfortunately, some bad investments and WWI caused him to lose much of his fortune and his beloved castle. However, it’s now open for the masses to tour for the price of $24 a ticket for adults, $18 for seniors and youth and $14 for kids between the ages of 4-13.
Find Nemo. One of the newest additions to Toronto is Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada. The home of more than 13,500 fish, coral and other sea creatures, the aquarium provides an educational and interactive experience for ocean lovers. Visit https://www.ripleyaquariums.com/canada/tickets/ to buy tickets.
If you’re staying for the full week, check out the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair, which runs from November 7 to 16. It’s the largest indoor agricultural and international equestrian competition in the world. Enjoy horse shows, dog shows, performances and family events. Visit www.royalfair.org for more information.
