Since I am on a temporary blogging hiatus due to the busy schedule of my gang for my god daughters wedding this weekend, I am giving you a birds eyeview of what you can expect when you visit us here in Toronto.Here is a brief guide to my city.
What can you do in Toronto in 24 hours?
Here is a brief guide from Intrepid Uban Adventures.
BREAKFAST (7-9 am)
In Canada, breakfast isn’t usually a huge meal, and most eat just a bowl of cereal, some toast and jam, or a muffin for breakfast. For those that work in Toronto, breakfast is usually something taken on their commute to work. You’ll see Torontonians walking or driving to work with a paper cup coffee from Tim Horton’s, Second Cup, or Starbucks in-hand. We are a very caffeinated city!Don't leave Toronto without having a taste of Tim Horton's Coffee(Double double) and Tim Bits(Doughnut holes).
MORNING (9am – 12pm)
Beat the crowds to Kensington Market and Chinatown. By the afternoon these two colourful neighbourhoods are bustling with shoppers looking for vintage clothing, fruits and vegetables, cheeses from around the world, fresh fish and meat, and all manner of goods. A morning visit can be much more peaceful and enjoyable if you don’t like crowds. Many shops and stores start opening at 9 am, and by 11 am everyone is open for business! Be sure to explore the laneways and alleys between buildings for a look at some of the best graffiti and street art in Toronto!
LUNCH (12pm – 2pm)
There are many amazing lunch spots in Kensington Market and Chinatown. Try some of the city’s best Chinese dumplings at Mother’s Dumplings, melt-in-your-mouth smoked meat sandwiches at any Delicatessen, tacos with pineapple and pork cooked Lebanese shawarma style at El Trompo, feel-good vegan sandwiches and wraps at Urban Herbivore, and finish it all off with a sweet treat from Miss Cora’s ,Wanda’s Pie in the Sky or Vietnamese Pho and Open Sandwhiches along the busy Chinatown market!
AFTERNOON(2pm – 6pm)
Once you're done with eating and poking into the interesting shops and graffiti in Kensington Market, you can walk over to the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO)and later take the Spadina streetcar south.
Wander east along Front Street (or Queens Quay). Along the way you will pass the CN Tower and Rogers Centre (formerly SkyDome), as well as Union Station and the Air Canada Centre, two more of the city’s major landmarks.
Past Union Station continue to walk east along Front Street to the St Lawrence Market – voted the best in the world by National Geographic! On Saturdays and Sundays there are flea markets inside and around the market.
DINNER (6pm – 8pm)
Enjoy a local craft beer and some well-paired food at Mill Street Brew Pub in the Distillery District. It’s Canada’s most award-winning micro-brewery!You can also try some chocolates at SOMA, a chocolate and gelato shop also at the Distillery District.
EVENING (8pm – 10pm)
If the weather is cooperating, take a stroll north to Queen Street and head east to Riverside and Leslieville.You can also see the lights of Toronto on a one-hour evening sightseeing cruise on Toronto's Inner Harbour. While you cruise the Inner Harbour and its picturesque island lagoons, you'll watch as Toronto lights up for the evening in a fantastic light show.
