There’s so much to do in Toronto – and while the WTA stars are in town for the Rogers Cup, they have plenty of plans off the court as well.

It’s a great place to visit, whether you’re into art galleries, museums packed full of history, spectacular sightseeing, fantastic theme parks or just getting back to nature.

Enjoy the unique shopping opportunities at the markets and the malls – and keep an eye out for Simona Halep, who loves to indulge in a spot of retail therapy.

“Of course I love shopping wherever I go,” she says. “The Toronto Eaton Centre is a great mall with many nice shops.”

You can also enjoy dining at one of the city’s award-winning restaurants. Andrea Petkovic is a huge fan.

“Toronto has some of the best restaurants in the world,” she says. “One of my favorites is Bar Isabel – the octopus is ridiculous.”

Enjoy some of the fabulous sights – and if you’re not scared of heights, Canada’s very own Bianca Andreescu thinks you should go up in the world.

“If you visit Toronto, you have to go to the top of the CN Tower,” she says. “The views are absolutely incredible.”

If you take a trip to Toronto, take a tip from Cambridge Global Payments. Unlike the US, Canada does not have dollar bills. Instead, coins are used for one and two dollar denominations, the gold-colored “loonie” for one dollar and the larger “toonie,” which has a silver rim around a gold-coloured center, for two dollars.

There is no longer a penny coin (1¢), so amounts are rounded up or down to the closest 5¢.
