Travel Advice Toronto Wanted


Recommended Posts


The subway is good and cheap for getting around, it even goes out to the airport with a connecting shuttle bus. 

Costs are similar to visiting London. For 5 days I’d want to have £1000 available but expect to come home with plenty of change.

Obviously you could spend significantly more or significantly less than that.

Really easy to use the streetcars (I'd say trams to you and me Mick, but you probably remember trolly buses ?) for getting around. Taxis were pretty reasonable as well and pretty quick from the airport to downtown.

To give you a ballpark figure, we were there for 7 nights at the same time of year last year for the Leigh game and spent about £750 and that included a few beers every day (some more than others...!), eating every meal in a restaurant (again, some more expensive than others), a couple of Blue Jays games, a TFC game and a day at Niagara Falls.

Beer prices seemed to vary from anything between $6 and $14 but with the ridiculous level of humidity we tended to drink vodka and Sprite which was generally $7 to $9 wherever we went so a bargain in comparison. Beers at the game were $10 a can and you don't even need to move from your seat as there are staff walking round selling cold cans. 

An experience I'd recommend to anyone, have a good 'un pal.

Fair enough but the Canucks will know where to go, public transport etc.

Non-Canuck but see above ?

Shame your trip doesn't (quite) coincide with Canada Day, we had a great night following the crowds down to Woodbine Park

Give David Argyle a call. He knows the area well and has unexpectedly found himself at a loose end most weekends during the season.

Oh Ye of little faith.
