Take a Toronto Trip Outside of Canada
Taking a trip to Toronto doesn't mean that you have to visit Canada because Australia has its own city by this name. The destinations in this city range from art galleries and museums to fun outdoor activities.
The Lake Macquarie Art Gallery is a popular spot with locals and tourists. While it does have a large selection of art on display, it's also home to a sculpture park, and the grounds surrounding the park are open for those who want to spend time outdoors. Not far from the gallery is Lake Macquarie, which is home to rental shops where you can rent boats and outdoor equipment. Orbitz.com lets you save money on your trip abroad with deals on hotels, flights, and rental cars.
Best time to take a vacation to Toronto
Visiting Toronto is unusual for some travelers because the hottest temperatures come in December and January. These months have highs of around 80 degrees Fahrenheit and lows in the low 60s. The weather in this region is usually nice and mild. Even when the colder months hit Australia, the city sees temperatures in the mid-40s and low 60s. The warmer months are often better for traveling because the water temperature is warmer and there are more events and things to do. Whether you want a winter or summer vacation, visit Orbitz.com to take advantage of the great deals on travel arrangements.
