I recently traveled to Toronto for one of my best friend’s wedding. How I got to Toronto deserves a post of its own but let’s just say it involved a VERY long (but very cheap) bus ride. I lived in Canada for four years but I am not very familiar with its most populous city, though I’ve done most of the big tourist attractions like soaking in the view from the top of the CN Tower and catching a Blue Jays game at the Rogers Center. As a bridesmaid, my agenda was pretty packed with wedding-related activities, but I did manage to squeeze in a little sight-seeing and (of course) a little eating. Here is a round-up of my Toronto picks:
Toronto is HUGE but between the subway, streetcars and buses, it’s actually very easy to get around and explore the city’s many neighbourhoods. The newest addition to the public transportation system is the BIXI, a Canadian version of our Smartbikes. As long as you ride for less than half an hour, a CAN $5 24-hour or $12 72 hours subscriptions allow you to travel as much as you want.
