Toronto City Reviews

  • 100%



    Love this city, so many bars and shops along with amazing people. Bought a present for my dad which was from a fly fishing shop, there is something for everyone in this city. Went to the phoenix theatre to watch some bands which is a night I'll never forget. Hiring cars is easy if you want to go on a road trip, try and visit Algonquin!

    Insider Tip:Get out, meet people you don't know and explore. This place is amazing. Some fast food places may have beggars or strange people hanging around but you will get that in most cities.

    Toronto Is Amazing

    I love Toronto as a city and all the people. The atmosphere, the hole in the wall bars as well as the big breweries... i haven't met an unfriendly person either!

    Insider Tip:Go to the bay bar called Woody's and get served by Glenn... he's so nice and amazing! Also, Bar Neon is my favorite place in the city! my friends held their wedding reception there!

    Myweekend in Toronto

    Toronto is a very laid back city. There is variety of places to eat, sights to visit and thing do. Having been there for 3 days, I covered the majority of the city on foot. Toronto is also very bike friendly, the majority of the city is flat not to many hills- cars respect bike traffic unlike other major metropolitan cities. The city is in amidst of a renovation , as there is tons of new high rises being built throughout the city. Toronto is definitely a great place to visit.

    Insider Tip:* Buy all your souvenirs in Chinatown (way cheaper) *Don't rent a car unless you have to everything is within walking distances if you stay in the city * Sales tax is 13%!! *try to avoid the CN tower area during mid-day it is packed and possibly an event is going on at Roger center *People in Toronto are very friendly so ask questions and make conversation *not a party city for those looking to party into the wee hours of the morning

    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!
