Just don’t forget about Porter Airlines with their free up in the air drinks and complimentary airport lounges, as they fly into Toronto’s smaller city airport and do their thing from spots like Newark, Washington, Chicago-Midway, Boston, and Myrtle Beach. They even having a half-off airfare sale, and one-way options can be had for as low as $132—just book before today and fly before the end of July.
As far as stuff to do there’s plenty, so be sure to plan your time accordingly. Of course you can always try your best to search for Mayor Rob Ford. Other options include a ride to the top of the CN Tower, a Blue Jays game at the Rogers Centre, a visit to the Hockey Hall of Fame, or get outdoors with a visit to Toronto Island or High Park. If you’re a foodie, St. Lawrence Market is the place for you, and we’d also recommend a side trip to Steam Whistle Brewery for sips, samples, and a tour.
Accommodations won’t set you back a fortune, but if your refund was extra generous then Park Hyatt, Four Seasons, Shangri-La, and Ritz-Carlton are all options and available. More affordable choices are certainly available—this isn’t New York—and we saw rates for Hilton, Marriott, Westin, and InterContinental brands for just north of $200 per night.
We’ve kind of convinced ourselves to visit Toronto again, so maybe we’ll see you at Tim Hortons—the double double and maple donut are on us!
