Going to Toronto--What to do?

We are going to Toronto later in July, but we have only a day and a half. Is it hard driving there? We really want to go to the CN Tower, that's a definite (What's it like). What else would you recommend? Hint: I am a huge sports fan. Is it better to stay outside the city and drive in or stay in the city? Any information on these topics or any others you would deem important to know would be appreciated. Don't hesitate to e-mail me if you have trouble posting to this site. Thank You.

Fodor's Citypack Toronto is a fabulous slender tour guide with a fabulous map that even includes the location of all the hotels and the bus/streetcar routes. Highly recommend for planning your time there. You don't want to drive in Toronto, as all the sights and attractions are easily reached by public transportation.

If you're a baseball fan, check out the Blue Jays' schedule - they may be playing at home. The Skydome is in the same area as the CN Tower. If you are a hockey fan, the Hockey Hall of Fame is also in that general area. I would recommend staying in Toronto as opposed to staying outside of the city, however public transit in Toronto is quite good. If you do stay out of town, you might want to park and take the subway or the Go Train into the city. Both would go right downtown and you could visit the tower and whatever else from there.

Stay in a central Toronto hotel; drive there, and you will probably leave your car at the hotel, and walk or take cabs or the subway to see the sights. As a sports fan, go to the top of the CN Tower, and lookdown. You'll see SkyDome, home of the Blue Jays, on one siode, and the Air Canda Centre on the other side,home to the Raptors and the Maple Leafs. Two blocks north of the towrer, at John Street and King Street West, is a great sports memoribilia store. A couple of blockseast of the tower, at Front St. and Yonge, is the Hockey Hall of Fame. Take a SkyDome tour. Eat a hamburger at Gretsky's restaurant, again only a couple of blocks from the tower.

JUst got back from Toronto and we loved it. CNtower, then walked next door and where to a Blue Jays game. Ferry to Toronto Islands is fun if you want a breeze on a hot day.Casa Lomas and Museum of Science was a day in itself.. Go to the Cn Tower first thing in the morning it gets busy and hot on some of the elevators. We did not drive. Easy to get around with mass transit and transfers. Trains only run till 10 pm so you may have to cab bac or take a bus . Do the harbor area at nite just for a nice walk. Enjoy, it was a great city. We lost a wallet and it was returned to our hotel the Royal York that was day intacted. Only in Toronto!

Small point - June, the previous writer, said that the trains in Toronto only run until 10 PM. If she was talking about the subway, she's mistaken - I live in Toronto and I know they run much later than that - probably 12:30 or 1 AM. Maybe she meant the Go Train - that's on a completely different schedule. But it was nice to hear how much she enjoyed Toronto!
