toronto top 10 highlights

I’ve been attempting to catch up on my summer travels so even though the order is a bit mixed up, next is my trip to my favorite friendly neighboring country, Canada. A wedding is always a good excuse to visit a new place! I was so excited to visit Toronto and of course explore it with Melody. Basically our last minute planning consisted of a combination of messaging our Canadian friends,  instagram, and good ol’ Google after landing in Toronto.  We only had about 2 days for sight seeing. However, we definitely packed a lot in and crossed off most of the things on our list, except for climbing the top of the CN tower (which I was ok with not doing, especially with the foggy weather on day 2).

Top 10 Highlights of exploring Toronto:

  1. Walking through Kensington market and seeing an eclectic bunch of things like the car that was turned into a garden on the street.
  2. Maple bacon macarons from Nadege patisserie while catching up with Steph!
  3. Staying at this cute boutique-y hotel, the Gladstone that was an art gallery during the day.
  4. Finding cute stationary and book stores on Queens street west.
  5. Taking photos of all the fun graffiti and art on the sides of buildings.
  6. Going down the Frank Gehry stairs at the Art Gallery of Ontario.
  7. Eating dinner at a random restaurant/pub on Osington, that ended up having the best sweet potato fries. The poutine was just ok.
  8. Taking a ferry to Toronto island and walking on the boardwalk by the beach with my cousin’s family.
  9. Watching planes land and lift off from Toronto city airport from a friend’s rooftop.
  10. Blueberry pancakes from Mildred’s Temple Kitchen. I would definitely go back here anytime.
