Things to do in Toronto?

I will be there for 2 days in June and don't have a clue what I should do. Any suggestions?

Toronto has been noted as the most diverse city in the world... use it as an opportunity to experience the cultures, foods and neighborhoods of the world. there are dozens of summer festivals, museums, events, and locations that allow this.

Depending on your dates, plug into any of a dozen toronto websites to check the calendar...

http://www1.toronto.ca/wps/portal/to...0067d60f89RCRD is the city's tourism site; there are plenty of others with advice on activities and attractions. By the start of June it should be warm enough for restaurants and pubs to open their terraces. There could be outdoor concerts but indoors the spring season of plays and museum shows will be wrapping up. Some of the live theatre action will have shifted to the Stratford Festival but Soulpepper, in an old distillery district, keeps repetory plays going through the summer. www.soulpepper.ca At any time of the year Toronto is a great city for movies, now augemented by screenings at the permanent home of the Toronto International Film Festival. Check www.tiff.net for attractions; the four daily newspapers in English carry extensive listings.
If you really want to be idle in the outdoors, old-fashioned ferries waddle across the inner harbour to the parks and beach of Toronto Islands. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toronto_Islands On a crowded summer day you can see the truth of Peter Ustinov's old statement that multicultural Toronto resembles New York, only run by the Swiss (although it is not so neat and clean as when he said it....)

Deladeb - are you referring to Casa Loma? If so it is not outside of Toronto but in fact very close to downtown (especailly the Yorkville area that tourists love).

Since you'll be here in June, you may want to catch some of the Toronto Jazz Festival with performances (some free) at various venues. Definitely head to the Distillery District; they have great outdoor patios and it is one of the jazz festival venues. Harbourfront on the shores of Lake Ontario is perfect for a stroll or a bite to eat. You can take the ferry across to the Toronto Islands. If you're looking for cheap restaurants with great food, head to Kensington Market at College and Spadina. If you're looking for cool bars, head to Ossington Avenue, a very hot Toronto neighbourhood.

There are festivals in Toronto every weekend and Kensington Market has pedestrian Sundays on the last Sunday of every month. Pick up a copy of NOW Magazine (or google it) for what's happening that week. It comes out on Thursdays and you can find it at just about every streetcorner.

Buy a hop on/hop off bus pass and explore the city from Chinatown, to Casa Loma. A taxi anywhere in downtown is no less than $20. The bus pass also includes a harbour cruise.
