If you ever wanted to go to Toronto, Ontario there is so much to see. I had just had the pleasure of going to “the big smoke” as they like to call it over the past weekend. So where I’m from Toronto is a 4 hour drive South and on the way there a majority of the road is four lanes and they are working to get the highway completed sometime in my life time. Another option if you do decide to travel to Toronto is to fly and depending on where you are flying from I would definitely look into using Porter Airlines. Porter flies right downtown Toronto to Billy Bishop Airport and you will ample options to get to the heart of downtown for $10 from there.
When in Toronto this weekend we stayed at One King West which is right in the heart of downtown. If you do stay there you are a 10 minute walk north to the Eaton Centre and 5 – 10 minute walk South to the Hockey Hall of Fame. The one thing I personally like about staying at 1 King West is they are all condos, so you get a fridge, stovetop, microwave, dishwasher etc. all in the room.
So while in Toronto there is so much to do. As mentioned above you can go shopping and see the Hockey Hall of Fame within a stones throw from this hotel. This weekend I went to a Toronto Blue Jays game and it was great. If you do stay at 1 King West you can walk there in a matter of 15-20 minutes or you can take the TTC street car West 5 stops and you will be a 2 minute walk away from the Sky Dome.
This place is just spectacular and our seats were section 113C Row 14 seat 101-103 and it did not disappoint. The one thing I do caution on is when sitting along the first base line when the dome is open during an afternoon game bring sunscreen, a hat and sun glasses because you will get pounded by the heat! So the game was great and the Jays did beat the Baltimore Orioles that day! Edwin Encarnación owned the Orioles on the weekend hammering some good homers.
After the game we went for dinner at the Marche Restaurant which is between 1 King West and the Hockey Hall of Fame. Its awesome and economical, when you go you grab a card and check out all the different foods they have. You decide on what you want and you give the card to the attendant they swipe it and you pay after. To give you an idea we had pizza, mushrooms, fruit, steak, beer, mashed potatoes and some drinks and it was under $80. Thats pretty awesome in downtown Toronto where breakfast can cost you $50. Nonetheless there is so much to do in Toronto that you will see as we move along with the blog all the fun things we do there. This was 1 thing and we were there for a weekend.
Until next time happy travels!
