Toronto Greatest Hits Walking Audio Tour

This self-guided GPS audio walk will take you along the two busiest streets of Toronto: Front Street and Yonge Street.

This tour will be Toronto tourism on speed: we’re walking past most of the biggest attractions and landmarks in an hour. Join me while we walk past the Skydome, the CN Tower, the Hockey Hall of Fame, and maybe catch a festival in Yonge and Dundas Square.

Mid afternoon to the evening is the best time to take this tour. Ideally, take the walk during the Spring and Summer when baseball season is in full swing.

Places to stop along the way include Steam Whistle Brewing, Yonge and Dundas Square, Nathan Phillips Square, and any Tim Horton’s if you’re hungry.

The tour is ready whenever you are and the audio plays automatically at exactly the right time and place using your smartphone’s GPS and the VoiceMap mobile app, which also works offline.

Pass By: Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada, 288 Bremner Boulevard, Toronto, Ontario M5V 3L9 Canada

Ripley’s Aquarium is Toronto’s newest attraction. It opened in October 2013. The aquarium is a highly popular attraction in Toronto, and Canadians are also very excited about it. It’s the first one we’ve had here, so the novelty hasn’t worn off yet.

Pass By: Steam Whistle Brewery, 255 Bremner Blvd The Roundhouse, Toronto, Ontario M5V 3M9 Canada

The origin story of The Steamwhistle Brewery is as Canadian as it gets: three buddies came up with the business idea on a canoe trip.

Pass By: CF Toronto Eaton Centre, Toronto Eaton Centre Gallery 220 Yonge St Suite 110, Toronto, Ontario M5B 2H1 Canada

The Rogers Centre or The Skydome, as Torontonians still insist on calling it, is where most people in the suburbs journey to the most. It’s home to the Major League Baseball team, The Toronto Blue Jays.

Pass By: The Elgin & Winter Garden Theatre Centre, 189 Yonge St, Toronto, Ontario M5B 1M4 Canada

The Elgin and Winter Garden Theatre Centre is the last remaining double-decker theatre in the world. By double-decker, I mean there are two theatres in one building. The gilded, luxurious Elgin is seven stories below the Winter Garden.

Pass By: Nathan Phillips Square, 100 Queen St W, Toronto, Ontario M5H 2N1 Canada

Nathan Phillips Square is a cultural spot in Toronto. In the winter the city makes a big ice rink here. During the Christmas season at night, the entire square is lit up, and loud music plays. The Official Christmas Tree is here and they turn on the lights after the Santa Claus parade.

Pass By: Toronto City Hall 100 Queen St W, Toronto, Ontario M5H 2N1 Canada

The Toronto City Hall, or New City Hall, is the seat of the municipal government of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and one of the city’s most distinctive landmarks. Designed by Finnish architect Viljo Revell and landscape architect Richard Strong, and engineered by Hannskarl Bandel, the building opened in 1965.

Pass By: Old City Hall, 60 Queen St W, Toronto, Ontario M5H 2M3 Canada

The Old City Hall building is actually the third City Hall Toronto has had. It was finished in 1899 in a Romanesque Revival style. It was very nearly demolished to make way for the Eaton Centre, but thankfully it was saved before any damage could be done.

Pass By: Union, 55 Front St W, Toronto, ON M5J 1E6, Canada

Union Station is a beaux-arts style railway station. When Prince Edward of Wales opened the station in 1927, he said “You build your stations like we build our cathedrals”. It is a grand and wonderful building.

Pass By: Canadian Broadcasting Centre, 250 Front St W (at John St.), Toronto, Ontario M5V 3G5 Canada

Canadian Broadcasting Corporation is also known as the CBC. The CBC is a Crown Corporation, which means that it’s partially funded by the federal government. But it operates at arms length from the government. The content is left up to the producers and journalists for freedom of the press.
