Quote: Talk about a city of hustle-and-bustle! Toronto is one of the most diverse large cities in North America, and one of the most crowded to my knowledge. If you want to avoid driving a car, this city may be for you.

Hotel | "Cambridge Suites"

Quote:
The Cambridge Suites is located in a convenient area amongst the financial district and entertainment district. The time I was in Toronto was the weekend of Caribana, which is a crazy festival.

This site gave many wonderful suggestions for fashion, vintage, shoes, etc. Aritzia (280 Queen St. W): Filled with 7 jeans, Juicy Couture, and the house label, TNA, this store is for the trendy and fashionable. Although not the cheapest store on the block, there are designers that fill the racks of the store that are not found in the U.S. Brava (483 Queen): This vintage store is filled mostly of vintage T-shirts for gals and guys. There is a handful sele...Read More
