We’d never been to Toronto and were posted up in Michigan for a while so we figured why not make the trip being that close to another major international city? I was super shocked to find a bunch of cheap options for places to stay and went with a $20 a night guest room with some delightful hosts. It wasn’t too far from downtown and we may have spent a little more in gas, but we saved in the long run for the rental.
We did your run of the mill sight seeing around the city and enjoyed taking the subway when we could and gobbling up poutine when we found it. The highlight for us both was going up the CN Tower. It’s kind of a constant sight in the city since it’s so tall, so getting to get up close and personal inside the thing was really cool.
