Toronto is a massive city with a ton to offer, and even with the crazy selection there are places that are bound to get overhyped within the city. Don't get me wrong though, overrated doesn't necessarily mean bad, it just means it's crazy popular and that there are other spots you can check out if they are way too rammed! So check out what spots are overrated and where you should go instead!
The CN Tower
Dinner at the CN Tower sounds great in theory, I mean you are in the highest building in the city! Though if you actually want to see the skyline, you aren't going to, instead you're a part of it!
The Chase // 10 Temperance St
While this spot's food definitely isn't underrated, hosting some of the best seafood in the city, the patio's view definitely is! If you want a luxe dining experience with some of the best sea food in the city and a great view of the skyline where you can even see the CN Tower!

Nathan Phillips Square
The 'Toronto' sign has become pretty iconic, but Nathan Phillips Square definitely isn't a spot you want to spend the day. With the crazy crowds and insane traffic it definitely isn't the best spot to relax and people watch in the city.
If you want a more low key spot that still has a decent amount of people to keep it interesting, check out Berczy Park! Not only is their new dog fountain adorable but the park is in the perfect spot, right by St Lawrence Market and surrounded by cool buildings and food spots!

The Scarborough Bluffs have gotten wildly popular over the past couple years and a lot of it has got to do with getting that signature Instagram picture everyone gets looking over Lake Ontario. Though, with the amount of landslides and crowds that have been flocking, the experience just isn't the same as it used to be!
If you are looking for a more unique adventure, check out the Cheltenham Badlands. While the spot is still closed until further notice, the spot has a killer view!
