Very long layover in Toronto - Ideas?

Jump to last reply

First the setup: I am a little old lady and will be arriving in Toronto on August 7 or 8 (a weekday for sure) at 9ish in the morning on the Canadian coming from Jasper. I will have spent 2 nights on the train. I am leaving Toronto at 11:30 that night on the Megabus for a 12 hour ride back home. I will have been riding buses and trains for about 3 weeks. My only luggage will be a very small backpack and a big purse.

I am sort of leaning towards booking a hotel room - hopefully one with a very early checkin time - so I can have a nice hot shower and a long nap. Maybe the hotel should be closer to the Bus Depot. Any hotel ideas?

Also, anything interesting that can be done by tour boat or bus. I am guessing I'll be one tired 70-something woman by then. Have been to Niagara Falls several times, so I don't think I am interesting in killing time that way.

Sorry Toronto - I promise to comeback and stay longer next time. But, 3 weeks is as long as I like to leave Dear Hubby "Home Alone".
