Hi I will be flying in from Newfoundland for a weekend event in Hampton Inn and Suites, Barrie in Sept. I decided to fly in a day early and now I have to figure out what to do. Thinking I may spend the night in Toronto but have to figure out affordable transportation (from the airport as well as to Barrie the following day) and accommodation. Unless something interesting shows up I'm left with either shopping and/or Wicked at Mirvish Theatre. I used to live in K-W and Burlington Area many years ago so I don't need to anything too touristy but I'm open to suggestions.
I'm looking for suggestions for a place to stay convenient to transportation and shopping, but safe and budget friendly. If I decide to go to a show can you buy discounted last minute tickets somewhere as I'm only looking for a single one. Thanks
