Default Anybody live in Toronto?

I may be paying a little visit in the fall any advice?

Oh and any hotel suggestions? I think I'm staying for a weekend or something.. nothing really extravagant lol I just need somewhere clean to sleep.

I've only been to Montreal before so this is exciting! CANADIAN ADVENTURE!

Visting a breeder so fingers crossed all that works out

I am close to TO as are a few chazzers. Most chain hotels are nice. Now Toronto is pretty big, you will likely want to stay near the breeder.

Though I would suggest staying longer than a weekend, TO is full of fun things.

The breeder is over an hour away from Toronto airport as it turns out (Somewhere called Erin, ON).. that's gonna be an expensive cab ride lol
It changes things up a bit, so stay tuned!

I wouldn't cab it. You could likely use the GO system. Not sure if the GO train stops in Erin but it would get you a lot closer and THEN you could cab it!

I live just outside of TO

I love going to Queen Street W and hitting the little shops, tons of great finds. You absolutely have to stop by Originals.

I love Kensington Market. All the little Asian bakeries.. so not low carb but sooo tasty


Hmmm you know if you want to hang out for a few days when you come we could stroll around there (I can even bring a dog)

I got to see Kensington Market last summer when Ry had an art show there, LOVED it!
So many cute little places that looked like they were just puked out of someone's house right onto the sidewalk, haha. The culture there is something I really love, too. It's so different from where I moved here from, it's a nice change. Some very good restaurants too, yeah.

I haven't had the opportunity yet to really explore Toronto. I fare horribly in the cold, so we've only been a few times this winter (last night for a friends show in a battle of the bands, and for Christmas presents and to see Louis CK live). This spring/summer though, it's my goal to go all over.

I like the Distillery District for arts/galleries/designer stuff. Plus the buildings are cool. There are also lots of different cultural areas like Chinatown, Greek, etc. And of course the huge mall downtown (Eatons Centre), the waterfront... lots of places to see!

Erin is a cute little town about 20 minutes east of Guelph. If your breeder is in Erin, you may want to look at staying in Guelph for the week-end (about an hour west of the airport).

I would love to Dekka!
This trip is seeming more and more complicated lol as Andrew said.. it really is a tiny little town not very accessible.. I am hoping we can work something out to just meet in Toronto..

There are plenty of things that need to fall into place first! but I figured I might as well start planning this stuff out. Id love to go visit somewhere new anyway! lol
