Central Toronto attractions

Jump to last reply

I posted this as part of the conversation under another thread, but I figured I would add a separate thread for those who might not see the original.

I am looking at visiting Toronto on Friday, April 26. I would be going to the University of Toronto area at some point and would probably be there for a couple of hours, but there is no set time I have to arrive. I also want to visit the CN Tower if it is a clear day.

If I drive I might go to the Botanical Garden (I am debating whether to drive or take the bus). Especially if I take the bus, things in "central Toronto" would be the easiest to see. Some possible attractions I think I would enjoy are the Allan Gardens, the Sculpture Garden, and the Ryerson Image Centre. Maybe the Toronto Islands? I enjoy photography and plan to have my camera with me, so places that are good for taking pictures would appeal to me. The AGO, OSC, and ROM are out for this trip.

I would like to do a "Tap into TO!" tour with a Toronto Greeter, but it looks like you have to be there on a multi-day visit to sign up for one. I did a similar thing in Chicago a few years ago and enjoyed it a lot.

Thanks for any input you can offer (on bus versus car as well as things to see).
