Toronto - a visual summary

If you've read my previous blog post, you'll already know that we planned a holiday to Toronto earlier this month. I loved every minute of it and thought it was such an amazing and varied place. 






I put together a 'top ten' list of sights we wanted to see in my last post, so I thought going through those ten (in photos) would be good way to summarise what we got up to during our week away. The only attraction we didn't get to was Toronto Zoo... one no-show out of ten isn't a bad success rate! 



1. Niagara Falls

Wow. Just wow! Definitely a sight where photos don't do it justice, particularly with all the water vapour floating around... I wanted to stay there forever. 






2. CN Tower

Amazing views of the city...






We also went for a meal at the revolving 360 Restaurant on top of the CN Tower which was quite simply spectacular. 






3. Casa Loma 

Nice bit of Canadian culture, and more beautiful views! 








4. Union Station

A pretty majestic sight... certainly better than Cardiff Central. 





5. Toronto Island Park

As promised, a tranquil escape from the city. And we made friends with a cat! 








6. St. Lawrence Market

So much pastry, meat and cheese... and maple candy. 






7. Royal Ontario Museum

An insight into Canadian and world history, as well as the usual prehistoric suspects. 






9. Distillery Historic District

A quiet stroll on our last morning - bit of a hidden gem! 







10. ALL THE FOOD PLACES

No need for words here...
