    Great park to walk in a sunny day and have a picnic. Perfect spot for a picture of Toronto skyline. You can take the ferry or a taxi boat at harbour front.

    Interesting, fun museum. I'm a bit of a sneakerhead, so this was the type of quirky museum that appealed to me (though it is decidedly NOT a sneaker museum). Only knock on it (hence the 4 stars vs 5) is that it's not that big! I was expecting to spend at least an hour or two going through everything, but we were done in about 45 min.

    It is a great deal, though, if you're going with a family. The family package was incredibly affordable, especially compared to the other attractions Toronto has to offer.

    When one is fed up with winter a visit here is very worthwhile. Entering one get the scents from all the spring flowers. It is also very peaceful and well maintained.

    My husband and I have been saying for a while we wanted to visit so we deiced to go for our wedding anniversary this year.
    From the moment I booked the ticket to when we left every one was extremely helpful. I booked the tickets online but accidentally wrote the wrong email address I emailed Black Creek and got a reply with my tickets attached. Once we got the village every one we spoke to was extremely helpful and informative. Everyone told us information about the part of the village we were in.
    We were both surprised about the size of the village, we thought it was smaller. We had a wonderful few hours walking around and speaking to people who work there. Lovely way to spend our anniversary. Thank you

    Great place to spend an afternoon with family in any season. It’s very dog friendly, with plenty of trails (must be leashed) and an off leash area. The walks are well maintained and it’s not busy on week days. You may see beavers on the lakes if you are lucky. The weekend markets are lovely, and the cafe Belong has amazing drinks, snacks and delicious (though not cheap) food. Book ahead for brunch at weekends.

    Great getaway from the city ... minutes away from the city. natural space with no dogs allowed. lots of joggers and cyclists. lots of coast for relaxing and fishing. there is some parking available near the trail but its not paved. otherwise you ll need to park further away and walk

    I needed a new suitcase so we walked from the Fairmont Royal York down to Winners, about 10 minutes away from hotel ! And, what to our wondering eyes did we find, but this amazing dog fountain.........Loved it, sat and enjoyed it for a bit, and took pix of all breeds, and the one kitty , what fun! A hidden gem in the city.......... And yes, I did get a new Roots suitcase at Walmart, a wonderful trip to Toronto and this was definitely a highlight!

    We spent a weekend at my sisters place in Scarborough and before we left for home she invited us to see Guild Park in Scarborough, a favourite spot for photographers taking wedding, prenuptial, debut and graduation photos.

    This is one place to visit if you want to take photos with good background. However make sure you are early to escape others who are there also to take photographs

    Variety of older homes. Varying conditions. Many are painted each half in a different manner. Intriguing to just cruise around and see a few. Its free.

    For a November afternoon it was balmy (19C) and the Belt Line is a pleasant walk. It's better in summer when the shade of the trees flanking this walk is welcome. In the fall, the direct sun is mostly screened off by the houses on the south side. Still, we enjoyed our one-hour-plus walk, starting from Oriole Parkway almost to Eglinton and then back again.

    We went to the Winterlicious supper at Gibson House. It was a roast beef dinner prepared over the open fire in the kitchen.

    Sheena did a wonderful job of dividing jobs up so everyone was involved in preparation of the meal and each dish was properly cooked and ready at the correct time, all the while giving a full commentary on the Gibson family and life in 1851. After preparing the meal we all sat down to eat it by candle light in the dining room.

    They don't do these meals too often so if you get the chance to attend one I highly recommend it.

    As the name suggests, it is Toronto’s First Post Office and is functional even today. It is located in the historic St. Lawrence district. It has a museum inside which is worth visiting. Certainly would very highly recommend the same to any traveler.

    First time visit to Toronto. It was very cold but excellent trip to Niagara Falls. Snow on arrival & bitterly cold but dressed for the conditions. Bars were excellent. Good good & comedy club very good too & tickets were cheap.

    On a recent return trip I was as delighted as always by the quality of the show. Ryerson is the home of the Black Star Collection, with it's 292,000 images as well as other important archives so they have a wealth of material from which they can mount fascinating and historic shows. The current show in the main gallery features Gordon Parks, whose photo essay about poverty in Brazil was published in Life Magazine in 1961. The Centre is well worth a visit anytime.
