First off, let me say that the AGO itself, the building, is beautiful, and well worth the visit if you haven't seen it since its rejuvenation. Plus, many of the permanent exhibits (on Canadiana, for example) are things you could spend days going through. However,...More

The museum had an abundance of masters and all in well-lit areas. The cafe, although small, had nice views and coffee. The entrance and staircases also featured gorgeous views of the city.

An eclectic selection of art. Some of the Canadian artwork was really interesting to see, although the lack of many signs identifying the artist and giving some information about the pieces was a little frustrating at times. Because we went after 6 on a Wednesday...More

They offer free entry one some evenings. Check their site for details. Very nice place to visit. Make sure you allow for plenty of time as this is a big place and you need to have enough time to see everything.

Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the
largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas
Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a
wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs
and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun.
Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with
people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and
products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces
