Easy! The Wendys/Coffee Style parking lot on Airport Road. You're literally right at the end of 23R at YYZ
. I spot there frequently.
Here's a link to the spot: http://goo.gl/maps/348c3
As for YTZ
, I've never actually spotted there, but when I've attended festivals and outdoor concerts at Ontario Place which is the next island over directly west of the airport, and I always see PD
planes passing over top. I imagine you'd get some half-decent spotting in from the Ontario Place parking lots, but you'll only see Q400s and 172s all day and a handful of helicopters.

|Quoting mirrodie (Thread starter):|
Planning on the Niagara Falls, just to see it but will likely do so on the drive from fort Erie to Niagara on the Lake. I hear that highway is longer but is a more scenic ride.
There's plenty to do in Niagara Falls (Canadian side) other than to just see the falls, but it's all really touristy stuff, so I'm not sure if you're into that or not.
I assume you're talking about the QEW as the highway? "Scenic" is definitely a generous word to use. You're better off taking the back-roads and driving through vineyard country.
I'm not sure what else to tell you, but I went to university about 20 minutes outside of Niagara Falls and I know the area decently well, so if you have any specific questions feel free to ask.
