So I am leaving the big city and I now have a handful of weekends to try and fit in all that I can with my girlies in Toronto before I leave. What do you ladies think are the top 10 things to do in Toronto? I have to make the most of the summer!

It really depends what you enjoy doing with your friends. Personally, I would do some of the following:
1) Summerlicious. I went to Far Niente for dinner; it was delicious!
2) Riverdale Farm: I know its cheesy, but I grew up going to the I doubt any other city as big as Toronto has a farm in downtown! haha..
3) The Rex (on Queen Street): Good old Jazz music and decent food.
4) CN Tower and 360 restaurant(if you haven't been there). Apparently, it has a small glass floor on its elevator..
5) Johnny's Burger: Victoria Park and Lawrence
6) Brunch and Vintage clothes shopping at Kensington's Market.

Thats all I can think of right now. Hope it helps :)

Personally, i would try to get a date at the harbour front and spend some romantic moments around there before i leave. I wont spend too much time on those tourists stuff.

Thanks for the suggestions.... on Jun 26, 2008 @ 03:54 pm

I will definitely give some of them a try! I have been up the CN tower but never in the restaurant. I lived on the Harbourfront so I have already done all that stuff....

Toronto Island on Jun 27, 2008 @ 12:47 pm

I don't know how often / much you've gone on that ferry but I love going to the Island in the summer. Great for exercise, relaxation, and the view of the Toronto skyline!

Balzac's @ Distillery on Jun 29, 2008 @ 04:01 pm

My fave artsy cafe... I have already left the big city but I go back here to drink their wonderful organic coffee, stare at the art and just breathe/reflect...

Thanks for the reminder Miaka, I meant to check out Balzac's before I leave Toronto. I have heard nothing but great things about it here on ChickAdvisor! thanks! :o)

Since you're in the distillery district already, you might as well go over to SOMA to have their famous Mayan Hot Chocolate (a super thick cup of pure liquid chocolate spiced with ginger, chilli...etc). This is a local chocolatier. You can see the way their chocolate is made on site.

Summer in the city. on May 05, 2010 @ 08:42 pm

My suggestions:

Travel to a far off neighbourhood. There are so many great little neighbourhoods in the city that have a whole vibe of their own.

Buckle down with one great book this summer and take it with you in your purse or your car. Whenever you find yourself outside in the sunshine, read a few pages. I'm a sucker for reading on park benches, on cafe patios, in my car waiting for a friend - lets you escape for a while...and the whole time, you're experiencing Toronto around you.

Stop into a place you wouldn't normally stop into. For example, I walked into a comic book store the other day. Just out of curiousity for that side of the world, it was very cool and the guys in there were totally cool with me just popping in to see what they were all about.

Concerts! Toronto, although this summer seems to be lacking a bit, has some great concerts. Go to them. Indoor, outdoor - whereever - as long as the music has you moving, even if just a little bit!!

Oh - I just noticed that MizzRobin posted this in 2008. Oh well, I'm still posting this to share with the rest of us still in Toronto. In fact, in any city!!! Enjoy.
