an Australian A2ker will be in Toronto in two months (literally)

I know what I'd take her to see/hear/do ... but I live here and I'm biased.

Have you ever visited Toronto as a tourist? what are the things you'd recommend? what do you regret wasting time on?

are you in/near Toronto? want to join us for lunch or an adult beverage the first weekend in May? lemme know Smile

@ehBeth,
we spent a day with the Prince here

http://www.harbourfrontcentre.com/thewaterfront/

had a fun meal at a resto here with the Boston George pack watching the airport where Ms. M will be arriving

Kensington Market is a great neighbourhood - many visiting A2kers/Abuzzers have been there

special museums /galleries


http://www.textilemuseum.ca/

http://www.batashoemuseum.com/

http://www.rom.on.ca/en

we could do a tourist day on the streetcar travelling through some interesting neighbourhoods

too many choices!

@McGentrix,
thanks for adding some ideas McG!

I always forget that the PATH isn't normal for the rest of the world - and it is pretty cool - my mother always loved checking it out

two months exactly? join us for lunch? coffee? hot dog?

and really - anytime you're here - I'd love to have a tea/coffee/juice with you/your family

@ehBeth,
I'll be in the VIP line, one of the out of place old white men with a beard and too much time on his hands.

3rd and most likely last time I see this band. But what a show they do!

I see you there all the time - you're either a VIP or security telling the kids they can't bring THAT in
