currently, only a few nights in Toronto are booked. What shall i do there?
This thread will be bumped in the future.
you can get BLUE PEPSI at the top.
Somewhere near by.
Do something with the blue jays.
i really wouldn't go to ontario to ski/snowboard its pussy hills
- I loved Toronto Island. Ferry's pretty cheap over, and you can hire bikes there.
- Go to the massive indoor market whose name I've currently forgotten and get a Peameal Bacon Roll.
- Spend lots of money at Sonic Boom record shop.
- Learn from the voice-over lady on the underground how to pronounce Spadina.
- Go to the Danforth and eat Greek food.
Bloody love Toronto.
The guy was a real legend, held a street party every year on his birthday for local kids for free. Shame i believe he's passed away now.
-Sonic Boom - YES!!
- Drink in Sneaky D's usually some good live music on, Crystal Castles always used to be in there.
-Mod club to massively exploit your accent to the max
-Go watch the raptors (b'ball) or leaf's (hockey) play
-Don't go to Mississauga
Could recommend a hundred bars if you wanted. Some excellent restaurants too.
lovely place. i seem to remember the vodka & oranges being unholy strong and like $3.
Yeah it's good, but then most of the music venues downtown are, even that masssive out of town ampitheatre type thingy one is ace, seats at the front, standing behind and a sloped lawn futher back, happy days!
pretty much the best soundsystem i've ever heard. was amazing.
No, not Honest Ed's. It's umm... St Lawrence! That's it (I think). St Lawrence market, it's near the main train station. It's incredible.
I got a 70c tie there and i got the job!
I didn't see the point. Maybe I just went on the wrong day.
Steve's Music Store is prettycheap if you're looking to buy instruments or whatever.
The Horseshoe Tavern is great too on occasion. I saw the Dead Weather play there. Tiny little spot.
But idk how interested you'd be in that.
it's about $50, and gets you into 6 tourist attractions, so it's really good value. It includes the Royal Ontario Museum (ace), Casa Loma (brilliant, definitely go there) Science museum and Hockey Hall of Fame (didn't go to those), the Zoo (absolutely miles away, but you can get there on public transport and it's really good) and somewhere else I've forgotten.
Just read all the Scott Pilgrim comics first, then you'll be well excited when you go there.
it's not amazing, but it's good to say you've done it if you've got the cheap pass. The main problem with it is it's the main landmark in Toronto, so once you're up there you can't see much else!
you're gonna rather stay in your room then go outside. i'd reccomend going anytime between may and september.
-go to the beaches and go along the boardwalk
-shop along queen west or yorkville if you want really high end.
-stay in the city, dont go to any of the suburbs like scarborough, missassauga, north york, etc.
It'll set you back about a hundred dollars but its so so SO worth it, you'd spend that in no time taking the subway, buses and trams.
