17 Sep Sam’s Top Ten Things to do in Toronto
For more than two years, my wife and I had the good fortune of living and working in the remarkable city of Toronto. My wife was supervising animation on a major motion picture and I was working on a large museum exhibition. It was an exciting time, but it was also crazy busy! Despite the long work hours, we did manage to explore Toronto to the fullest. Below, in advance of ASTC, please find my top ten favorite picks for sights to see in Toronto, and beyond:
- CN Tower. This one is obvious, but it’s a must!
- Royal Ontario Museum. For no other reason, see Libeskind’s labor of love.
- Terroni Adelaide. Eat fantastic Italian food while in a Historic Court House from 1852.
- St. Lawrence Market. I recommend a stop at Dominic’s Fish Market.
- Algonquin National Park. Not in Toronto, but worth the trek North. I had an up-close encounter with a bear there and lived to tell about it!
- Canoe. There are not too many places you can get Baffin Island turbot.
- Eaton Center. It’s the Mall of America of Toronto.
- Starfish (now called Pearl Diver). Ignore the reviews. If oysters are your thing, this is the place for you.
- Chinatown. It’s the second largest Chinatown in North America!
- Tim Hortons. The most important place to visit if you are in Canada. I recommend the Timmies on Richmond St. East. Remember a double double is a coffee with 2 cream and 2 sugars.
Oh yeah, while you’re in town also don’t forget to visit us at ASTC 2019! Booth A-509.
