Hey guys,

I'm planning a mini-trip to Toronto for the weekend. Plan is the spend two nights in Toronto and see Niagra Falls. It'll be a drive up from MI. Any ideas on what we can do/see in Toronto, like what are things that are a must for the City, and any other suggestions?

Well, the CN tower is impressive, but it costs $24.95 Canadian to take the elevator up. So:

1. Make sure the weather is clear; and
2. If you pay for someone to go up with you, make sure the later parts of the evening contain some sort of gratification.  Wink

The hockey Hall of Fame is a good visit if you're so inclined. $12 Canadian. It's on lower Yonge Street, not too far east of the CN tower. You can walk to the tower through the Skywalk. Comes in handy in the winter months.

Mr. Tasty on Church Street makes a mighty fine hamburger at 1:00 AM. Just ask LHMark (actually, ask me too!).

If you're into flight sims, you might want to drop by Flight Deck Solutions, Inc. I don't know if they have anything formally set up, but it's a small enough company that they wouldn't mind if you dropped by to see what they do. It's really quite fascinating. The web site is this:

visit Casa Loma and Ontario Science Centre. Thanks to winters, you'll be missing a visit to Centre Island. Its place to be in summers. Same applies to Edward Civic Gardens.
Besides that, hang around in downtown and if you're interested in up-market restaurants, then look for Village of Yorkville at Bloor & Yonge (bang in the center of the city).
Sorry to say but you're coming in the worst part of the year. Even spotters at YYZ hibernate during these days.

That was a fantastic burger.

If you like good music, check out the Horseshoe Tavern on the corner of Queen St. West and Spadina.

Go to a Leaf game.

Here's what you do....

Pray to your god and ask for a pair of tickets.

When he grants you your "wish", call and take me with you.  Wink

Hi FSP,

You will have a great time in Toronto if you have never visited before.

Loads of attractions in the downtown area as previous posters have mentioned although they would be better enjoyed during warmer months.

Niagara Falls is about 1.5 hrs drive from Toronto, it's worth the drive. It's awesome to see the Falls in the daylight but also quite impressive to see the "light show" after dark. Also believe that they have a fireworks display most weekends.

You will also be legally allowed to try out some of the local "watering holes" as the drinking age here is 19.

Enjoy your trip,

Alan

Visit the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum in Hamilton. A wonderful museum with lots of unique aircraft. You will almost pass the front door on your drive between Niagara and Toronto.
