Toronto, Canada: A One Day Itinerary
Toronto, one of Canada’s major cities, is the capital of Ontario. Toronto is full of entertainment and sightseeing opportunities and one could easily spend several days here. But what if you only have one day? Check out this sample one day itinerary for Toronto, Canada:
9:00am: Begin the day at Cafe Crepe and enjoy a bite to eat. Cafe Crepe’s menu offers a variety of different breakfast themes and sweet crepes which go along nice with their fresh squeezed orange juice. Located just a ten minute walk from the CN Tower, the next item on our itinerary, makes this a great option for breakfast, and nothing short of delicious.
10:30am: After breakfast head over to the CN Tower and take a ride to the top for breathtaking views of the city. Choose from one of three great options: general admission including the two lower observation levels, general admission with skypod including all three observation levels, or Sea the Sky, which includes general admission to the CN Tower and admission to the Ripley’s Aquarium. We chose general admission, but for a trip with young children Sea the Sky would be a great option!
12pm: After the CN Tower head over to the Historic Distillery District. Here you can spend a couple hours exploring the shops, galleries, and wine stores. Be sure to stop into the Beer Hall and try some free samples. For a quick treat stop into Flipside Donuts and try some of their mini donuts with a variety of toppings and dipping sauces. Watch as the donuts are made fresh right in front of your eyes!
3pm: Grab lunch at one of the many restaurants within Eaton Centre and spend some time exploring and shopping at the multi level shopping complex, where you will find shops for everyone in your family.
5pm: After visiting the Eaton Centre spend some time walking around Yonge-Dundas Square, a public square located outside Eaton Centre. Explore the shops and admire the large flashing billboards that resemble a mini Times Square. You also have a good chance of catching some entertainment. When we were visiting we have the opportunity to watch some breakdancing.
630pm: After exploring the Yonge-Dundas Square head over to Nathan Phillips Square, where you can view the iconic Toronto Sign. Depending on the time of year you may also catch a live concert or enjoy some ice skating.
730pm: Spend the evening walking the Toronto Waterfront and take in some stunning sunset views. Stop for dinner and drinks at one of the many waterfront restaurants while you spend some time relaxing.
