We're coming to Toronto for our honeymoon in August and staying in Ajax (friends house).
I've been before in 2009, and spent around 5 days in the area.
This time, we are coming for 15 days, but have booked into a hotel in Niagara Falls for a 4-day stint in the middle. This leaves us with 11 days in the Toronto area, and based on my prior experience, I'm starting to worry that it's too much with too little to do.
The possibilities so far, in no particular order:
1: General look around, familiarise ourselves, shops etc.
2: CN Tower
4: The Islands
After that, I begin to struggle to come up with things which would genuinely excite us.
Toronto is a great place, but for 11 days?
So - as well as asking for advice on what to do in Toronto - I also ask for advice on whether there are worthwhile trips by train/bus where we could get away for 2 nights or so. Do any of the following merit a visit?
* Lake Simcoe
... and a little further afield:
* Lake Nipissing
Perhaps even something on the American side? We're based in Niagara so anywhere easy from Buffalo would be considered.
We had looked at NY. The flights from Buffalo were reasonable, but the hotel prices in NY were ridiculous to say the least.
Our dates are mid-end August.
Many thanks for your help.
