We'll be flying into Toronto in a couple of weeks for the final leg of our tour of Canada. I've pretty much decided on the Alexandra Apartments Hotel as a budget choice so we can afford to spend more on things like CN Tower and nice food. I've been reading lots of helpful advice on these forums but have some specific questions.
The Airport Express looks the best bet to get from the airport to Alexander, which is on 77 Ryerson Ave 101. Which would be the best stop to get off at downtown? The closest stop is Holiday Inn on King but I don't mind getting off earlier and jumping in a cab/subway if it's easy/safe. Don't mind a couple of blocks of luggage pulling.
That evening, we intend to go to see The Blue Jays at the Dome. I've never been to a baseball game and want to do the beer and hot dogs thing. Would we be better off paying on the day and going high up in the gods or pre-booking some of the more expensive seats? I presume you can pay on the door for the cheap seats? We’ll have binoculars.
The next morning we want to watch the England soccer game, starting at 11AM Ontario time I think. Any advice on where us Brits could watch this? (one of us is a Scotsman & may not be supporting England!) I expect we will have checked out of the hotel by then so watching it in the room is not an option. Doesn't have to be a bar but those are the most likely candidates to show it.
After that, it's freeform, taking in Niagara Falls and a few hikes in the area. We're bringing tents etc. Are there any campsites near the Falls? We'll rent a car just before this to give us more flexibility.
