Tell Us Your Best Toronto Tips
Toronto was the first big city I ever visited. Compared to my home city of Rochester, Toronto was basically Tokyo. I loved the push of the crowd, the diversity of the shops. I crossed streets for fun, just to feel swept along. I bought army surplus coats that didn't fit, just to feel like part of the thrift-shop scene that resembled nothing I'd seen at home. This diverse city of 2.7 million, the biggest in Canada, still maintains a bit of a small-town camaraderie, sandwiched between the equally sized Chicago and the frankly too massive New York.
Torontonians, what are your best tips for visiting or living here? What's the trick to your subways? How do you get through the winter? What are the best places to eat, drink, and shop? What cuisine does Toronto do best? Which museums get overlooked? What's weird about the local laws? What should everyone do as soon as they've moved here? What's good in the suburbs? And have you ever had to tell a disappointed tourist that Niagara Falls is two hours away?
Comment below and I'll publish the best tips this Thursday. (And hey Houston, Texas residents, there's still time to submit your Houston tips over here .)
