Spending 4 Days In Toronto, What To Do?

Hello guys,

I'm spending some time with a friend that lives in BUF right now. I also have plans of going up to Toronto this week, for about 3 or 4 days, and would like to know if you guys know of any must-see places, tourists rip-offs to be avoided, and other lesser known yet interesting places I can visit. I am above the drinking age (in Canada, not the U.S.), but I'm mentioning this just not to limit you guys or anything  Wink

Any tips are very much appreciated!

Thanks,
PPVRA

Take a ride up the CN Tower in Toronto, but only if you aren't afraid of heights or vertigo...the glass floor is pretty freaky  Wink

The CN Tower and glass floor are definatley a go-er. Also check out the SkyDome where the Tornoto Blue Jays play baseball.

I also did an 'old tram' ride sightseeing tour - but that was a while back.

Boat around the bay is also good 'cos you can see the CN Tower from a distance and you can get good pics.

Queen Street West is becoming very gentrified, but has a ton of little restaurants and bars. Near the intersection of Queen Street and University is a fantastic, reasonably priced Indian restaurant called Babur.

On Queen, you'll also find a pretty good, low-key pub called the Bishop and Belcher, and, on the corner of Queen and Spadina, the Horseshoe Tavern, one of my favorite rock and roll bars in the world.

Hi PPVRA,
As I am not a true Torontonian, the best I can do is to give you this link. It may be of some help. where.ca/toronto

When they tell you in the CN Tower that the glass floor can take the weight of 8 elephants, ask them how thye got them in the lift. It cracks the guides up Big grin

If you have enough time or you want to relax ... make a tour to Toronto Island.

Fo the nights I recommend the Area around Queen and King Street (Subwaystation: Osgoode).
Check out the "Woody's" (www.woodystoronto.com) You will have a lot of fun especially If you are not gay  Smile

On the weekends "The Beaches" are a nice place (Take the Queen-Str Tram to east).

Toronto is an easy city to get around. I'd suggest that you start walking around downtown and the surrounding neighborhoods. Chinatown, centered around roughly Spadina and Dundas, is a good place to go; even just for the sights and the sounds. I am sure you can get good food relatively cheap too.

Plenty of cheap restaraunts, just gotta find them. When I was there w/ my friends in May we got lucky had a good/cheap sushi/teriakyi place right across the street from our hotel (Yonge and College). Plenty of ethnic food in Toronto too. And for the most part it is fairly inexpensive, even moreso if you are going from US Dollars to Canadian Dollars.

If you like to party, Toronto has a great club scene, with great DJ talent playing weekend after weekend... if you don't like to party, and you're 20 something, then you do the following

Ontario Place and the Ontario Science Centre are also really cool. I reccomend them , and last I could remember, they're pretty cheap. though the Science Centre is more for the kids  Smile

Thank you very much for the help guys! Really appreciated.

I'm heading up there tomorrow, it's gonna be raining for about 3 of the days... oh well, from the above sounds like there is still plenty to do indoors!

Thanks again for all the info,
PPVRA
