Going to the McMichael is really a two-in-one deal—not only do you get to see some incredible art, but you get a day trip to a quaint Ontario village. A trip to Kleinburg (45 minutes from downtown Toronto) is one of the best things to do in Toronto when you’re done with crowds, lines and traffic. The McMichael is a breath of fresh air, and it’s also the place to see art you really won’t see anywhere else. Robert and Signe McMichaels’ collection of Canadian artists—including Inuit art, contemporary First Nations works and the sweeping impressionistic landscapes of some of Canada’s most famous painters, Group of Seven—is stunning. Spend a day spent admiring the galleries, lunching in a cute café and strolling the trails along the river Humber. If you’re pressed for time or want to spend some time outdoors, just visit the lower two floors of the gallery, then explore the gardens of the estate.
