Toronto 3yr/5yr old in tow

Jump to last reply

We are leaving Memorial Wknd for 5 nights in Toronto/2 nights in Niagara Falls. Arrive late Sunday from Detroit. Will be in Niagara for Fri/Sat nights to see the fireworks and do all the activities there. We have been several times before to NF but it was before kids.

Right now I have reservations at a Hilton Garden Inn downtown but parking is $35.
1st question-- how safe/unsafe would it be to park OFF SITE at a GREEN P garage to save ~$20/day in parking costs?

We can save some money but lose TIME by staying near the airport at another Hilton property. We have enough points to stay free for the 5 nights at any of the properties.

Most of our activities seem to be near/in dowtown area where we can access the metro if necessary or walk. It seems crazy to drive into downtown every day just to save the hotel parking fee. And we would have to pay to park downtown since the metro doesn't seem to come to the airport.

Centre Island
Hockey Hall of Fame (we have been before without kids)
Royal Ontario Museum (how much time to allow?)
Children's Science Center (if we run out of things to do-we have done a lot of them lately)
CN Tower (hubby proposed 10yrs ago in the Skypod and we will be there for the anniversary!)
Boat tour/hippo
Casa Loma (how much time to allow?)

Would also like to visit the Hindu Temple and possibly drive out to the BUG museum. Zoo is a maybe if we need something else to do.

The kids are pretty easy and go with the flow as long as they can find a place to run around/climb for a bit during the day. I noticed several parks downtown but not sure if any of them have playground equipment?
