    We tried using Google Map to walk from Union Station to Graffiti Alley. Got lost and finally found the Graffiti Alley after more than 30 minutes. Too hungry so just ate a pad thai at a corner small restaurant. At first, felt a bit unsafe as some guys in the restaurant were gawking at us.

    I liked the Graffiti Alley for the colorful arts and definitely it is a place for good pictures. There were some tourists there so I would say it's pretty safe in daylight.

    After visiting for 20 minutes, we headed out to Queen Street, the main shopping belt in Toronto. It is easier walking to Graffiti Alley via the main road of Queen Street.

    Beautifully designed garden. Recommend for people who are actually interested in local plans and garden design, or a pleasant short walk. This is not a big showy botanical garden-type place. My husband is a passionate gardener and we enjoyed following the planned routes, observing how the flower and plant selections worked together, and how the design of the whole integrated these things.

    Nice park with lots of sitting options. When I was there it was kind of wet and muddy but it was just the time of the year. Lots of young people hanging around so that’s nice.

    We went to see a special presentation at Campbell House Museum called ‘ Place Settings: Exploring Food and Status in 1820’s York’. Which runs until June 1. The entire experience was thoroughly worthwhile as it combined the traditional items that adorn the house along with a variety of artifacts and information boards that are specific to this presentation put on by the University of Toronto Museum Studies Graduate Program. We learned a lot, not only about old Toronto but food history also. We were there for over an hour and could have stayed longer as there was much to take in.

    I love how the COC offers a Free Concert Series on certain Tuesdays-Wednesdays-Thursdays of the year. They have a wide range of talent and every time I attend, it’s so enjoyable! Most are held at 12 noon til 1 pm but on some Wednesdays there are 5 pm shows. Seating is limited but give it a try - it’s free!

    I used to spend lots of time on Spadina during my youth when I liked in TO but it was a like time since my last visit and much has changed in that time. China Town is still there but deviate from here and you can see lots of changes. Some better than others

    Caught a concert in the Long Boat Hall. Was a great show, I really liked the venue. Sounds was good, nice small intimate room. Really good feel in the venue. Staff was good, washrooms were clean. Good experience.
    Looking forward to catching a concert in the Great Hall next.

    This gallery has 12 exhibits a year. All are worth a visit to this well curated gallery.
    Better yet each year in December the gallery holds its fund raiser called “Mistletoe Toe Magic”. Artists donated work and the gallery holds a silent auction. It is an outstanding at to buy excellent art at bargain prices.
    This is a must attend event for art lovers.

    The Rex Hotel Jazz and Blues Bar are located at the heart of Toronto Downtown. This place defines a 'cozy place.' The music started at 8.30 PM, as they mentioned on the ticket. We bought a ticket for Roberto Occhipinti Quartet. We preferred to sit in the bar section, which was very influential in comparing the price and quality. I can suggest buying a ticket from the bar section if you like. You can see the main scene, don't worry. To have the best personal music listening experience, I suggest going with a maximum of 2 people. You can even feel meditating on the music while you go alone and sip your drink. Rex Jazz and Blues Bar are highly recommended for a relaxing night experience. Prices are fair; you must wait a while to deliver your order. That is the only negative side—overall good experience.

    The Theatre Centre will hold more than the 80-90 patrons who were there this evening, but it offers a nice space for small productions. The acoustics are more than adequate. Unfortunately the play this evening, The Noble Kinsmen, was rather boring, in spite of the best efforts of the actors.

    Why haven't I been in this gallery before? I love Japanese art and especially the block prints known as Ukiyo-e and Stuart Jackson has been selling them for over 40 years. First located in the Yorkville district of Toronto, he moved his gallery to 882 Queen Street West in 2013. He has an extensive collection as well as an in-depth knowledge of the genre. A must see if you like all things Japanese, or alternatively, want to start collecting on a moderate budget.
