You fly to Toronto today and will have time to wander around the city later on. The waterfront is a good place to start, with plenty of cafes and restaurants where you can enjoy an evening meal and watch the world go by.
Day 2
You have a full day in this fantastic city. We recommend starting with the CN Tower for incredible views of both Toronto and Lake Ontario. You could also take the ferry across to Toronto Islands and explore this lovely parkland area on foot, or hire a bike. Alternatively, tickle your tastebuds at lively St Lawrence Market or try and catch a sports game at the famous Rogers Centre.
