    36 hours in Toronto

    I only had a small amount of time to explore Toronto, but I was genuinely impressed and I want to come back when I have more time. Being a major urban planning nerd, I walked up to Jane Jacobs' house on Albany Ave. There wasn't much at the house, but the neighborhood was great for walking! The University of Toronto campus and Spadina Ave were also good spots to explore. I also went to the Art Gallery of Ontario on their free Wednesday evening - definitely worth a visit!

    Toronto in a day on a budget!

    I didn't intend to see the tourist sites, as I've been to Toronto many times, and didn't really enjoy them the first time around anyways. So with that in mind I set off to explore some new (for me!) neigborhoods! I spent a large part of my day in Kensington Market, because there is so much to see and do there, and it's close to good Dim Sum in Chinatown. Also the walk from the subway station is a pleasant one if you take some side streets down. Very pretty architecture.

    Insider Tip:Get lost walking through the neigborhoods! Toronto is a very safe city, and if you feel like you should get back, but don't know the way, ask a Canadian for directions! They are more than happy to help! Also don't forget to thank the bus driver as you exit!

    Probably one of the most ''american looking'' canadian cities

    Pretty decent city though a little bit unsecure in my opinion, very expensive aswell but overall lots of things to do and see and very close to niagara falls !

    Small and Clean

    Toronto is a very nice place to visit. Casa Loma is a must! The people were very friendly. Too much construction going on but I'm looking forward to visiting again when the work is done and in warmer weather!

Canada: Itinerary

Located in the province of British Columbia, Canada’s third largest city is a traveller’s dream come true complete with a buzzing city centre and a host beaches, bays and lagoons. Add to this some great places to go shopping and a vibrant nightlife and it isn’t difficult to see why it is one of Canada’s most popular destinations.
