7 Day Itinerary in Toronto

Edit This
Day 1

Head to West Ends' Ossington Avenue, between Harrison and Queen St. West,  for an amazing set of galleries, shops and restaurants. Start off on the corner of Argyle and Ossington and visit Viriginia Johnson's shop packed with silk screened clothing and accessories. Virginia's clothing and accessories are great because she used to design for Helmut Lang. The next stop is just 2 blocks away at the Ministry of the Interior boutique, where Jason McIsaac curates an eclectic exhibition on his 2,300 square feet boutique. Have lunch at Union right next door to the Ministry of the Interior. Make sure to check out the local elk sliders and the roasted Red Bro chicken.

Day 2

Take the ferry at Yonge Street and head to the neighboring Toronto Islands for an encounter with nature, just minutes away from the metropolis that is Toronto. Here you will find nice beaches and picnic areas that make it a great setting for a family day. There are also bike rental spots available, so you can enjoy the many bicycle trails.

Day 3

Visit the CN Tower to experience Toronto like never before! The CN Tower stands tall between the baseball stadium and the Metro Toronto Convention Centre on Front Street. You start off with the high speed elevators that go all the way to the top in just 58 seconds. Through the elevator's glass walls you'll be able to see Toronto's skyline. Once you arrive on the observation deck, you will see the many boroughs of Toronto and learn about Toronto's main landmarks. The main attraction of the CN Tower is the 2 and 1/2 foot thick glass floor, which allows people to see 1,122 feet straight below. Just this experience is worth every penny of the admission price.

Day 4

You may have heard of the Duck Tours, but have you heard of the Hippo Tours? The Hippo Tour company takes you around Toronto both on land and sea. What makes the Hippo Tour worthwhile is the depth of knowledge and local insight about Toronto that the tour guides have. They're not only knowledgeable about what to do and see in Toronto, but they do their job with a smile and a lot of good humor. The sea portion of the tour is at Lake Ontario.

Day 5

Head back to Ossington Avenue and visit Jonathan + Olivia, a great clothing boutique where you will find great Toronto styles that will be the perfect gift for that important person in your life. After some shopping, head to the corner with Dundas, to try the amazing pies from Pizzeria Libreto. The wait is usually 30 minutes, but is worth every minute because every pizza is made with fresh local ingredients, and is always piping hot. Start off the weekend by grabbing a drink at the elegant Watusi cocktail lounge. This is a perfect place to stay all night, because the jazzy tunes turn upbeat after 9:00 p.m.

Day 6

Visit the St. Lawrence Market on the corner of Front and Jarvis, where you will be able to shop fresh meats and local produce. The market has plenty of food stands which, also makes it a great place for lunch. One great sandwich shop is Mustachio's, in the basement area of the market.

Day 7

Pamper yourself at Novo Spa on 66 Avenue Road. This spa is well known for its great facilities and friendly staff. The Novo Spa is a better value than most spas at hotels, and is a great way to finish off the week after long days of walking around. Treat yourself to a relaxing massage, manicure, pedicure or facial and go back home rejuvenated and feeling great.
