Visitors to Toronto : Check out Toronto Tourism Website before you visit

For travellers to Toronto, be sure to check out Toronto's official tourism site below, or just type in "Toronto Tourism" and you're there. I'd be interested in hearing if you found it helpful.

http://www.torontotourism.com/visitor

It gives up to date suggestions on "where to stay and where to eat, what to see and do, where to shop, events by each month, and special offers" and so on.

This excellent site should be checked out along with the advice from the helpful posters on this forum.

It's better than I remember it, but there's still no sense of humanity to it. No personality.

And there's nothing there I could find about Winterlicious, which I think is a big deal.

But yes,you are right. People coming to Toronto would benefit from visiting the site.

And... in regard to "It gives up to date suggestions on ..."

I don't really think of them as "suggestions." I think of them as ads or "listings" which is, in fact, all I would expect.

The site looks good. BAK, there is a great big icon for Winterlicious on the home page. I clicked on it and got lots of info.
I had never heard of it, but I'm so happy that you mentioned it. The site lists all the restaurants participating.
What a great opportunity to try new restaurants.

Although I live outside Toronto, I like to play the tourist and visit downtown every now and then.

Well, you've got better eyes than I do, because I don't see any Winterlicious logo on the Torontotourism visitor site I got to from this link.

But...

I've just figured it out. The genuises at Toronto Tourism have a rotating logo system, so the Winterlicious logo may or may not appear when you open the page. If it is not the "turn" of Winterlicious, you don't get to learn about it.

That said... pick some restaurants. and maybe tip as if you were paying full fare, so that the promotion doesn't wound the servers.

Lots of bargains.

Well, I'll be darned.
YOu are right BAK. I just went on the site again and Winterlicious wasn't there. Maybe they are trying to confuse us!!
