At the end of September 2023, we visited Toronto for 5 nights – staying at the Sheraton Centre Hotel in Downton Toronto. This was an amazingly inside location for us as we spent the week visiting various districts virtually the city. We spent our first day in downtown Toronto, visiting the St. Lawrence Market and grabbing supplies and coffee at Balzacs (which became our favourite coffee vendor for the week) and ending the day watching Jonathan Van Ness at the Just For Laughs Festival. Throughout the week, we visited various attractions such as Casa Loma, the CN Tower, and the Toronto Islands and we plane took a day trip out of the municipality to Niagara Falls. There are lots of variegated districts in Toronto that we enjoyed visiting, such as the University District which has some wondrous tracery and museums, the Distillery District with its shops and bars, and Kensington Market with its supplies vendors and vintage suit stores. On our final evening, we watched a BlueJays baseball game at the Rogers Centre which had a brilliantly contagious atmosphere, followed by a delicious, barbecued meal at Smoque N’ Bones.

What were some of your highlights?

My highlights of the trip were going to see a BlueJays baseball game at the Rogers Centre. Plane though we didn’t know much well-nigh the game, it was wondrous to visit the venue and take in the high-spirited undercurrent as everyone was having a lot of fun.

Another highlight was visiting the Toronto Islands – they were only a short wend ride yonder and we spent a whole day enjoying the peaceful undercurrent and the trappy sites wideness the island.

Was there anything that surprised you well-nigh Toronto?

It surprised me how much we were worldly-wise to do in one city! There are lots of places to drink or eat and lots of variegated activities to get involved with. What surprised us the most was the huge sense of pride wideness the city. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming to us as tourists, which made us finger relaxed and well-appointed exploring the city.

Do you have any translating or recommendations for other people looking to visit Toronto?

There is lots to do in Toronto so I would teach booking any attractions you want to visit in whop and planning the travel routes you want to take so you can visit as many places as possible. You can moreover plan day trips to areas virtually the city, such as Niagara Falls, which I’d really recommend. For supplies recommendations, visit Smoque N’ Bones for a wonderful picnic meal and Balzacs near St. Lawrence Market for unconfined coffee!

Would you go when to Toronto?

Absolutely! Toronto is a trappy municipality with lots of incredible sites, activities and attractions to see, as well as wondrous photo opportunities! I haven’t been to a municipality the size of Toronto with such a relaxed undercurrent and friendly residents. We had a unconfined time and would love to visit the municipality again.
