Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a good weekend. I spent mine dwelling over going back to work and emptying out my suitcase. Now that I’m all settled in, Im excited to start sharing all of my traveling adventures. This was my first time in the East Coast so I thought I would do a series of itineraries that would work for first time visitors.
Lets begin with TORONTO Canada:)
Ahhh finally this girl went to Canada! When we where planning our trip to New York we knew we wanted to also include a road trip. My first option was Quebec, but the boyfriend said that was too far:( The second option was Boston. I would have loved to visit Boston, but Dennis lived/worked in Boston for some time and he talked me into the idea of saving Boston for a future full on trip. So the next best thing was Toronto.
From NYC we took a quick flight to Buffalo, New York. Once we landed we picked up a rental. Dennis was beyond excited to be behind the wheel again. Four days of subway rides in New York City really got to him lol. Before crossing over to Canada we found the most amazing place to eat!
Right when you cross over you’re in Niagra Falls! Never in my life did I imagine I would have the oppurtunity to visit this beautiful place, but I’m so glad I did. Niagra Falls is visible from both the U.S and Canada. Canadian side is filled with fun attractions including a Christmas themed light festival.
After about an hour and half drive we found ourselves in Toronto! Toronto is AMAZING! Canadians are so nice and their city is very well kept. However, it is so darn COLD! I was covered from head to toe and I was still freezing.
We only had a few hours in Toronto so we tried to fit in as much as we possibly could. We were also extremely tired!
As always, finding a good coffee shop was our top priorty. We found Fahrenheit Coffee🙂
We then made VERY quick stops at a few different landmarks.
- Gooderham Building
- CN Tower
- Puente De La Luz- you can tell how cold I was!
- Kensington Market- we picked out so much fruit, and at the end they turned us away with our American Visa Cards:(
- Nathan Phillips Square
Out of all the places I got to visit I can honestly say this is the only place I’d actually consider living in. Its clean, traffic is not bad, people are nice, and there is so much to do! Too bad I’m such a spoiled Californian and weather wise I would never survive! I wish I would have better prepared myself for the 30 degree weather. Last minute I just layered on my jackets, but next time I’m taking one of those fancy puffer coats.
Canadian Winters are NO JOKE.
