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
Any tips are very much appreciated!

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.

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.
