Travelling to Toronto

Typically people get to Toronto in two ways. The very first is to arrive at the Toronto Pearson International airport that is incredibly busy and receives flights from around the world. The 2nd method of getting there is by roadway from the US-Canada border at Niagara Falls, Fort Erie, Windsor or Sarnia. The roadway network is well created with links to Detroit, Ottawa and upstate New York.

What is Toronto weather like?

Toronto weather differs significantly. In the summer, temperatures can soar above 30°C (86°F), while in the winter season, December, January, February, it is not unusual for temperatures to go down as low as minus 12°C (10°F).

Lodging Choices

Most hotels in Toronto range from modest budgets to five-star hotels. The accommodations are spread all over the city. There are many choices both in the suburbs and in the downtown core of the city. Usually, the further away from the city centre you venture, the more affordable the accommodations get.
One of my favourite hotels in the city is The Suites at 1 King West Hotel. As the bankruptcy trustee in Toronto, we successfully financially restructured this hotel located at 1 King St W, Toronto, ON M5H 1A1.

Shopping

The city's major downtown shopping complex is the Eaton Centre. Within this shopping center and the rest of the city you can discover all kinds of styles and products. There are also many good shopping centres in the suburbs, such as Yorkdale Mall.

Restaurants & Entertainment

Toronto is a food mecca. There is everything from budget-friendly restaurants to gourmet food. Toronto is a very ethnic and cosmopolitan city. So, there is a large range of both local and international cuisine. Toronto is also renowned for its fantastic theatre and nightlife. There are loads of bars, clubs and dining establishments that keep the city alive during the night. The downtown is extremely safe for both day and night time.

Attractions and sights

There is so much to see and do in Toronto. Toronto is a very unique city. You really do need a Toronto map in order to find everything and not get lost. There are many great tourist attractions for both adults and children. 
My favourite dozen are:
HarbourfrontCN TowerRogers Centre for concerts and the Toronto Blue Jays in Major League Baseball.The Scotiabank centre for concerts, the Toronto Raptors of the NBA and the Toronto Maples Leafs of the NHL.Toronto ZooToronto Eaton CentreHockey Hall of FameCanada’s WonderlandSt. Lawrence MarketToronto City HallCasa LomaDistillery District on Mill Street, a complex of 44 brought back Victorian-era industrial heritage buildings that has actually been developed into one of Toronto's most popular entertainment districts.

Outdoors, parks and recreation

By looking at a Toronto map, you will notice that Toronto has a lot of green space. Exploring Toronto by bike has turned into one of these great leisure activities for me. Not just is it a terrific workout, it's likewise a remarkable method to check out the nooks and crannies of any location. To share my interest I conscripted my good friend Mario on a Thursday night after work and convinced him to come on a biking trip with me.
We met up in the Taylor Creek Park system, away from Toronto's busy streets and started our ride, heading westwards towards the Don Valley. We turned southwards and got on the main north-south bicycle trail that is wedged between the Don Valley Parkway and the gradually flowing Don River, one of two primary rivers in Toronto.
In my opinion, Toronto is an exceptionally cyclable city. It has about 40 km of bicycle lanes on city streets and about 125 km of paved bicycle paths. What makes Toronto truly unique is a network of gorges that cross the city from north to south, most of which function for bike trails. We cycled below the Leaside Bridge, crossed Pottery Road and paused below the Bloor Viaduct, originally named the Prince Edward Viaduct System. It connects Bloor Street on the west with Danforth Avenue on the east side.
The Bloor Viaduct is 494 metres long and stands as high as 40 metres above the Don Valley. The leading level of the bridge features six lanes of traffic, and the 2nd deck holds tracks for Toronto's subway system.

The most unique place on the Toronto map

As part of the "Celebrate Toronto" festivities, I have actually set out with the objective of making one of the most complete discoveries of this city, focussing on the people and locations of Toronto. One location you cannot miss out on is the unique Casa Loma, Toronto's Castle. It was built by Sir Henry Pellatt, one of Toronto's many renowned characters.We sat down in the basement of the castle, previously Sir Henry Pellatt's exercise room, which today houses a cafeteria. Sir Henry Pellatt, born in 1859 in Kingston of English parents, was a successful Toronto investor, industrialist and military officer. Henry Pellatt was really devoted to the British Queen and became a general with the Queen's Own Rifles, a military program within the Canadian Armed Forces.
It was really early on that Henry Pellatt showed his business acumen: he established the Toronto Electric Light Company in 1883, the same year that Thomas Edison established steam-generated electrical power. This company was accountable for providing electrical lighting and streetcars and trucks on the streets of Toronto.
By 1901 Henry Pellatt was chairman of 21 significant businesses with interests in mining, insurance, genuine estate and electrical energy. Henry Pellatt was knighted in 1905 by King Edward V for his service to the Queen and his efforts in bringing electrical power to the people of Canada.
In the early 1900s, Sir Henry Pellatt was one of Canada's richest men and his high aspirations also extended to his personal life: he aimed to build a genuine castle by the name of "Casa Loma"-- "house on the hill". It cost $3.5 million dollars (about $60 million dollars in today's money). It took almost 300 men and almost 3 years to finish and incorporates a range of architectural designs that inspired Pellatt on his journeys to Europe.
Despite being one of the most influential men in Canada, Sir Henry Pellatt enjoyed interacting socially with common people. Sir Henry was known to be a gregarious and outgoing person. Pellatt's magic touch did not last permanently: with the production of the Ontario Hydro-Electric Commission, power generation was transferred into the public sector. As a result, Sir Henry Pellatt and his service partners were expropriated with no compensation whatsoever. In addition, one of his other businesses, an aircraft manufacturing company, was also taken over by the government, once again without compensation, as part of the war effort in WWI.
To make up for these losses, Pellatt went into land development west of St. Clair and Spadina. Around 1919 he was dealing with a major economic downturn and his genuine estate transactions went sour. They were not able to seize the castle, as it was in Lady Pellatt's name. However, all of his home furnishings and artwork were sold off at fire-sale rates. As a repercussion, Sir Henry and Lady Mary Pellatt had to desert their dream castle and moved to a farm in King City.
In 1927, Casa Loma was purchased by a New York group and turned into an upscale hotel. Nevertheless, this just lasted for 18 months as the stock market crashed in 1929. Sir Henry ended up getting the castle back, but as Lady Mary Pellatt had passed away in the meantime the City of Toronto, among the castle's primary creditors, seized the structure for $27,000 worth of unpaid realty taxes.The city did not understand what to do with the building and let it sit unoccupied for 10 years. In 1937, the Kiwanis Club stepped in and offered to run it on behalf of the city. Sir Henry meanwhile in his later years was practically destitute and wound up living with his former chauffeur in a modest cottage in Etobicoke, one of Toronto's residential areas. However, Sir Henry's role and historic importance were not forgotten: upon his death in 1939, he got the biggest funeral Toronto had ever seen. Thousands of people lined Toronto streets to see his funeral procession.
Casa Loma is so unique and well-preserved. Find it on the Toronto map and go enjoy its rich history and grandeur.
