The highlights of Toronto? Where do you begin? The CN Tower is a must to visit, even if you have a fear of heights. If you choose a day when the weather is good, you can literally see for miles. You can see right across the lake with great views of the Toronto Islands. In the other direction you can see across the city.Shopping is another big draw in Toronto. There are lots of shopping streets but the Eaton Centre is a fab shopping complex and connects to the PATH system too. Quick Tips: If you are visiting in the peak tourist seasons, buy your tickets for the CN Tower, etc., on the Internet. You will then be fast-tracked through the queues and get into the places much quicker and eas...Read More

Whilst visiting Toronto we stayed at the Marriott Courtyard Downtown. We had two rooms booked, one for my husband and I, and another for his daughter and her friend. Here is our review:Location:The hotel is located in downtown Toronto on Yonge Street, so is very central to everything in Toronto. It takes approximately five minutes to walk to the Eaton Centre where all the shopping is located. Parking:The hotel has underground parking that is valet parking. They charge $25 per day to park your car and you can have access to the car 24 hours and have the car brought round to you as often as you need. If you don’t want valet parking there are two or three park...Read More

The Eaton Centre Toronto is a large shopping mall located in the heart of the city off Yonge Street. It also forms part of Toronto’s underground pedestrian system PATH. It is a magnificent building with a glass roof making it bright and inviting, even in the winter. One of the features of the mall, apart from the shops of course is the display of Canada Geese suspended from the roof. This is a sculpture by Michael Snow called Flight Stop and is well worth a five minute stop to appreciate. At the time of writing, although these things change regularly, it is Canada’s third largest mall at 1,624,000 sq ft. There are lots of stores in the mall, around 300 I believe including Sears, The Bay, ...Read More

Whilst in Toronto we took the girls to the CN Tower. We had been up these before, but they hadn’t. We had pre-purchased tickets on the web, but there wasn’t a queue, so it wouldn’t have mattered if we hadn’t.The elevator to the main level is very fast and you can see outside whilst you are travelling up, which is good. Once on the main level you can walk around freely to see the views, which are quite magnificent. Obviously the weather you get makes a big difference. We were in Toronto for three days, so managed to wait for a day when the weather was pretty good, especially for mid December. We had excellent views from the tower and couldn’t have asked for better.The tower has a glass ...Read More
