just a huge Thank You to all who answered my queries on this forum.
We are back home now in the UK, having brought home wonderful memories of Toronto with us.
No question was ever too silly, or too 'obvious' all questions answered with friendliness and grace.
Fav places were..
Dundas Square, for people watching. Anything , and everything goes. I loved the vibrancy of the place, and friendly faces.
Harbour front. Excellent for chilling out and just sauntering along enjoying the views of the islands (and plane watching)
Also the harbour front for the weekends when something is ALWAYS happening....a real friendly happy family place.
St Laurence Market. THE place to go if you want truly fresh food. Meat, fish fruit, cakes, breads.....and the most amazing selection of cheeses I have ever seen ! It HAS to be THE best market in the world !
The CN Tower, just because, it IS amazing and the views are to die for ! and we both just LOVED the Amazon ride (?) at the base, that was thrilling..
Casa Loma. For the fact that it was lovely and cool on one of the hottest days we had in Toronto. Sitting in the gardens was a delight....and the coolness of the basement cafe was a pleasure to sit in. And, how cools that bathroom with THE biggest shower I have ever seen !
Lots and lots of other places we went to also that I would go back to Toronto to see again.
Places that would not be on my list were..
Kensington market and China Town. Didn't like those places at all...sorry guys :(
Everywhere there looked like it needed a real good scrub down.
Saying that, two places out of a whole city is very good going I reckon :)
Also, top marks to the street cars and the underground trains. Both clean, comfy and top notch.
Would we come back to Toronto ?
Yes, definitely , and definitely when the 'Doors Open' weekend is on. It was lovely wondering around places you normally don't get to see.
Thanks guys, for all your great advice, and, for having a lovely friendly city !
* Special mention to the Dundas Square Studio where we stayed for our two week visit. Top notch, and in THE perfect place !
