Weekend Getaway to Toronto, ON

By Travels & Adventures

We’re quickly approaching the last empty weekends on our calendar and we’ve worked hard to fill that space with friends, family & as many adventures as possible. This weekend, we took a last minute getaway from Buffalo to Toronto when we realized that weather and time were on our side.

We booked this clean & perfectly situated airbnb, by Queen & Sudbury Street (it included a secure parking spot!). We didn’t do much planning before arriving and since our internet was spotty most of the trip we left most of the itinerary up to early morning yelp review reading & a lot of question asking on the street. Some of our personal recommendations for a day/weekend trip to Toronto are:

Breakfast at School. Go BEFORE 10:30am if you want to avoid a line. The Pancakes, Cheddar Chive Bisquit & Huevos Rancheros were all great.
Margaritas at Reposado. Though the margarita’s quickly add up at $10.5, we highly recommend going for AT LEAST one (try the blood orange, yum!!) There is usually seating in the backyard, (even if it’s cold they have awesome space heaters).

A Toronto FC game at BMO Field. We scalped tickets to the home opener for $35 a piece right as the game was starting.

Exploring and Thrifting around Queen St. West. We had a lot of fun in Public Butter Vintage. We could tell you where else to go, to go but lonely planet does an amazing job of mapping out a great day trip with some stops in the many art galleries that line the streets.

Stop in the Bier Markt for an afternoon drink. Try the sweet & sour sampler.

Late Night Poutine at Poutini’s House of Poutine. The vegetarian gravy is delicious.
