STAY: The Gladstone Hotel – This hotel is the opposite of stuffy – we loved the vibe. Each room is uniquely designed by varying artists local to Toronto. The art installations are constantly changing!
8:30AM – 6PM The Niagara Day Tour — This is the part of the trip I was least excited about and it ended up being one of my favorite experiences. If you’re there, you really have to go marvel at the grandeur. I’m so thankful I let Kyle talk me into it.
8PM Dinner at La Banane – such a great atmosphere and THE FOOD. Wow.
Long run by the water. Starting at Gladstone — > Harbourfront Center — > Distillery District — > St Lawrence Market (4.9 Miles)
St Lawrence Market for breakfast and wandering
Walk down Queens Rd. West shopping – we stopped in a lot of places but we still shop online for Kyle at Frank and Oak
Canadian National Exhibition (didn’t buy tickets previous to showing up)
6:00 Hit the Distillery District for dinner
8:00 Broadway Show
Drinks after @ The Drake Sky Yard Patio
9:30 Church – If possible, we try to still go to church on Sundays, even when travelling. It’s fun to experience new places and worship alongside others. I wouldn’t say it’s an “always” for us when traveling – but we always love it when we do!
11:00 Brunch @ Bar Raval (don’t take reservations) – the design of this place is INCREDBLE. RUN DONT WALK.
Kensington Market shop + explore
Art Gallery of Ontario (walk from Kensington Market) – I love going to art museums when we travel. The architecture of this building was a bonus – so beautiful!
Check out Graffiti Alley on the way to the CN Tower
6:30 Buy beers / wine for the sunset
7:00 Toronto Island Ferry ride to Ward’s Island, takes 15-20 mins and is $10/person
Ate Poutine for dinner at a local bar — When in Canada!
Lazy morning and late breakfast at Saving Grace before heading home!
