Places to go:
Queen St. West is a very cool, kind trendy area with shops galor, and interesting head shops and Hemp stores as well. It goes west from University Ave to Spadina Ave, if you go north on Spadina you will be in China Town, and dam the food is good. Keep walking north or take the Streetcar (2.25$) up to Harbor St. and you will be in the University of Toronto area, with pubs, pizza, and nuff hotties, you can walk around there anywhere and there are people to meet and things to see.
Walk up to Bloor and jump on the Subway take it East over to Broadview Stn and you will be in Greek Town, again the food is amazing and the culture is wicked.....you can walk along Danforth all the way to Coxwell Ave and experience Greek life in Toronto. If you get onto the south Bus from Coxwell Stn get off at Gerard and you will think your in India, this is Little India with all the food and culture of Calcutta. Spend some time there and enjoy the sights...
When your done walk south to the Queen St. East and head into the Beaches area, very classy with cafes and dog owners milling about, there are about 4 StarBucks on that streach of road just to give you an idea. Still fun to check out though.
There is so much more to see, and different areas like Little Italy, Little Jamaca, Little Korea..this is the second most diverse city in the world, next to NYC.
Use day passes for the transit, $8.00 lets you hop on and off all day from after 9:00am
stop in the middle of the road, when the doors open cars are suppose to stop, LOOK BOTH WAYS BEFORE YOU EXIT THE VEHICLE
cars do not stop some times.
People will help you out, just ask!!!
When you are walking through a door, be polite and hold the door for the next person, its just something we do ( most of the time)
All ways take a transfer from the transit driver in the city, it is your proof of payment, you must show it when asked.
Try not to jay walk, city drivers are nuts!!!!
If your using US Dollars you get some serious bang for your buck!!!
( All prices I mention are in Canadian Funds)
