Toronto is an amazing place to visit. There is so much to see. To get your self started, I would recommend taking the open top bus tours.
Toronto is an amazing place to visit. There is so much to see. To get your self started, I would recommend taking the open top bus tours. With the tours, you can also take a boat ride through all of the islands. This is an excellent opportunity to get some of the typical postcard shots of the skyline. The buses also gave you an idea of where everything is and gives you your bearings.
Yonge Street which is pronounced Young Street is pretty cool. It has lots of shops and bars and the like and runs all the way up through the different districts. You could spend a full day just on Yonge Street. There is also Dundas Square that has a stage permanently up and always seems to have something or other going on.
There are some excellent photo opportunities on both the bus and just walking around. Lots of bright and shiny things and lots of street performers. The best time to go is a nice sunny day. It may be advisable not to go in the middle of summer though, as it can get pretty scorching.
