A few weeks ago, Thomas and I packed our bags and headed north! Our first stop was to visit family in Detroit, but after a few days in the D, we were off to Toronto. We actually made a little road trip out of it. From Detroit, we headed north. While crossing in to Canada, we had our car searched- I'm talking the kind of stuff you see in the movies- searched, the kind that makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up, scary! Probably didn't help that we were driving through before 5am, but it made for a great story afterwards.
Before heading to Toronto, we made a little pit stop at Niagara Falls and had the best time hanging around and exploring. But before long, we were ready to head to Toronto.
Knowing we did not have much time, we made a list of the FIVE things we just had to do in Toronto.
1. The Distillery District. This area is older than the city of Toronto itself. There were tons of adorable little shops, brick walkways adorned with ivy covered building, and lots and lots of flowers. I was totally in heaven with all of the picturesque buildings and fun shops!
AirBnB! We could literally look out of our bed and see the Toronto skyline and the harbor. It was fabulous!
3. Edge Walk at The CN Tower. Now I know what you're thinking- I'm crazy. And while I can't disagree with you on that one, this experience is one that is life changing y'all and I have to recommend it to anyone and everyone! After a brief but thorough info session, you are suited up and shipped to the top of The CN Tower, 116 stories high. We leaned over the city, we fell backwards over the city, heck, we even threw up a Hook 'Em over the city. All while being 1168 feet up in the air.
5. So maybe this place is a chain, and we all know I am totally against chains, but their ice coffee is off the chain! Thomas and I stopped in to Tim Horton's after we left the Blue Jay's game for a quick bite and ended up falling in love with their ice coffee! I'd totally pop in for an ice coffee if I'm ever in Toronto again.
We had the best time in Toronto, and I totally wish we had more time to spend exploring this fabulous city, but I know we'll be back eventually.
