24 Hours in Toronto

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! 

 If you follow me on Snapchat or Instagram, you got a sneak peek at the fabulous view from our AirBnB! We could literally look out of our bed and see the Toronto skyline and the harbor. It was fabulous!

 2. The second thing that you must do in Toronto in 24 hours would definitely be to catch a game at The Rodgers Centre! After all, this was the entire reason we made the trek up to Toronto. Both Thomas and I were so impressed with the stadium. The number of food options inside really beats out all of the other ballparks we have been to. And You can literally rent a hotel room in the outfield, how cool is that?

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.
 4. St Lawrence Market. If you haven't noticed yet, Thomas and I have a love for markets. We will find them wherever we go, and we will explore them for as long as we can. We popped in to the St. Lawrence Market just before we headed out of Toronto and could not have been happier. There were so many different kinds of foods, and desserts, and crafts we were in heaven. Thomas and I shared some delicious Chinese food, snacked on some sweet pastries and rounded off our souvenir shipping. We could have easily spent another four hours here.
Tim Hortons
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.

  14. I have never been to Canada and was just thinking the other day what a shame that is. It looks beautiful, and from what I hear, there's quite a range of landscapes, which would be so fun to explore!

  15. I stumbled upon this post on Pinterest and had to see what you got up in 24 hours in my city! You could see my condo from your AirBnB ;) I live right beside the Rogers Centre! Going to see a Jays game is SO FUN. I went to 6 games this year. There's so much to do in Toronto, if you're ever back, let me know!
