Hi, I've just returned home from our recent 4 day trip to Toronto and because I used the advice and tips from your forum before travelling I thought it might be useful to share some of the highlights from our trip.
First of all we stayed at the Fairmount Royal York which is a lovely, historic hotel in a great location. We managed to get a great deal for this hotel from Hotel.com.
Our favourite restaurant was the Richtree Market Garden which was close by on Yonge St. This is a buffet type restaurant but the choice is HUGE and everything is freshly cooked whilst you wait. We loved it and would return to Toronto just to go to this restaurant. We're from the UK and there's NOTHING like this here.
We also went to see Jersey Boys during our visit. WOW, what a show. The theatre was lovely and the cast were great. To be honest it was MUCH better than we expected. We got a great deal for these tickets from Travelzoo.
We did a little shopping too but unfortunately because our exchange rate is currently quite poor we found the prices very expensive.
We also did some 'touristy' things like going up the CN Tower (great views but you need to go up on a clear day) and visited the Beaches. We wanted to go to the Island but couldn't because of a strike.
I'd just like to thank everyone on this forum as I managed to pick up loads of tips before our trip (I would never have thought of going to see Jersey Boys for instance and this was one of the highlights of our trip) and I hope that this post will be of some use to others travelling to Toronto soon.
