How close is Toronto from Niagara Falls (canadian side)?

Is it worth taking a day trip while we are there??? What are some things you would recommend to do in Toronto?

Toronto, the provincial capital, is 81 miles from Niagara Falls. It's easy hiway driving. You mentioned in another post that you're planning Niagara for "only a few days at the end of April".

If it was summer, I'd recommend staying in the falls. However, you may find that you can quickly cover that, since it's not peak season.

A day trip to Toronto would be like taking a day trip to Chicago. If you drove from Niagara Falls, it would take 90 minutes if the QEW was moving well. You would need to either go Sat or Sun, or if weekdays, wait until the morning rush hour was over. So you would arrive around 10:30am. Parking may be a bit of a problem, but someone will tell you where to park I'm sure. Then you could count on about 8 hours of looking around, before you head back to the Falls. If you had already picked out a few places you wanted to see..CN Tower..Eaton Centre..whatever, you could get a flavour of the place, and claim "Yes, I have been to Toronto". But, as I said at the beginning, how much of Chicago would I get to know on a day trip. That's about as much of Toronto that you would get to know.
