USA and Canada 2016 | 24 hours in Toronto

This year we have headed out on another family road trip, this time starting in Canada and driving down to DC. We left the UK in the morning and arrived in Canada and set straight out for the CN tower. We stayed on Jarvis Street at a Quality Inn, which was ok for us as we didn't mind the walk yet it was quite far away from the centre. We spent our evening going up the CN tower, watching the sun set and taking in the views, and then we found a pizza restaurant (JZ's) with views of the tower and spent the rest of the evening there. 

We got up early and managed to fit in a quick gym session (our only one of the whole holiday - we started off so optimistically!) and got our free breakfast. We headed into the centre, despite it pouring with rain, and we wandered to the Eaton Centre. We had a long lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe and then went to find  the 'Toronto' sign and even had to go and get sunglasses as it had got so sunny after the rain. We went to the Market Gallery and saw the Beatles exhibit which was great to see. Afterwards we walked to the harbour and waited for a boat to centre island, it was really sunny by the time we got there and it has the most amazing views of the skyline. The island was so quiet and peaceful, we went over to the beach and saw the fairground. As we were travelling to Niagara the next day, we got Tim Hortons for dinner and went back to the hotel for an early night.

It was a really quick stop over in Toronto but we managed to see quite a lot of it in a short space of time. However I definitely don't think we managed to taste as much of the amazing food as I have heard about, so I will have to head back at some point. It was a lovely place for a first look at Canada, but there are so so many more places in Canada I would love to visit.
