Toronto Visit for 3 weeks - Need Info

by softwaretesting

Hi,

I will be in Toronto from 8th December to around 30th December. I need this info:

1. Where can I get latest photos about current clothing trend (specially winter wear) in Toronto? How does a male typically dress up?

2. I'll be staying close to Eaton Center. Any place where I can purchase reasonable price gifts for distant relatives? How value for money Eaton Center is?

3. Please suggest some good gift articles in the range of 25-50 Canadian Dollars.

4. Will it be expensive during Christmas holidays?

Thanks.

1. As you are staying close to Eaton's, you may take latest photos on winter wear at the Eaton's Centre itself. There are a lot of winter wear shops here. For more info, go to: www.torontoeatoncentre.com You may also go to The Bay or Hudson Bay Department Store opposite Eaton's or go to www.hbc.com These two are on the Top 10 best places to shop in Toronto. To find out, visit the link: http://gocanada.about.com/od/shoppingincanada/tp/toront_shopping.htm
I do not think Toronto male are fashion conscious but not old fashioned either.
2. Go visit some of the 10 Best Places to Shop in Toronto. You will find reasonable price gifts in most of them especially on Boxing day December 26. There are lots and lots of Sale in many stores during holiday season.

Hi There, Since you will be in TO for awhile i would suggest heading toward Niagara Falls, ON or even the NY side its about an hour away. The NY side has awesome shopping and tons of sales during the month of December. Econo Lodge at the falls has great hotel deals, i stay there when i visit to shop. Aside from the shopping Niagara Falls would be an awesome site to see.

Have a safe trip.

1. Everyone dresses up in woolens and jackets . It will be quite cold and you might need thermal innerwear if you are going to be walking around town. On that note , you could check out chinatown at Dundas and Spadina , a 5 min ride from eaton centre for good souveniers.
Eaton centre is not expensive though . Most things are reasonably priced . If you have the enthusiasm , you could head to orfus road for clothes shopping .
You can check out ttc.ca for public transport and travel tips & also goto toronto.com or just search for whatever you need on yahoo.
4. No its not expensive

Travel Tips for Toronto

Map

by GUYON

Keep in mind the organization of Toronto. There are 2 axis : Bloor Street which splits the city in North and South & Yonge which does the same West and East. Walk along West Bloor Street is pleasant. We crossed lively areas with shops and restaurants. I recommend the Greek and Chinese districts.

LIGHTHOUSE ON TORONTO ISLAND

by LoriPori

This text is from the plaque located on the LIGHTHOUSW ON TORONTO ISLAND - The Gibraltar Point Lighthouse. " This lighthouse, one of the earliest on the Great Lakes, was completed in 1808 as an hexagonal tower 52 feet high, topped by a wooden cage with a fixed whale-oil lantern. In 1832, it was raised to 82 feet and later equipped with a revolving light. The mysterious disappearance of its first keeper, J.P. Rademuller, in 1815 and the subsequent discovery nearby of part of a human skeleton, enhanced its reputation as a haunted building."

Apartment buildings

by OlenaKyiv

Downtown of Toronto has many apartment buildings of attractive design. Many of them have large windows, round shape corners, and even some sculptures on facades. Apparently many apartment buildings were built recently, many of them looking at the bay. I can only imagine their prices. Millions?

Multiculturalism

by fairy_dust

Toronto is one of the must multicultural cities in the world. There are people there from every country and culture imaginable, and while many choose to keep their home country's culture, they also share it with others. You'll see people who were raised or have adapted to Western culture, but also lots of people who wear their traditional dress and/or speak several languages. There are restaurants with foods from everywhere around the world, and plenty of opportunities to learn about the cultures of the immigrants who live here. My relatives in Toronto are Chinese, and we went to several places in Chinatown where Cantonese was spoken more than English, and every store/restaurant sign was in Chinese characters. Though I don't speak a word of Chinese nor can I read Chinese characters, I thought it was a cool experience.

Tim Hortons is a must for...

by loki5

Tim Hortons is a must for coffee. You can also get a cheap meal (chili, soup ya get the picture).Also watch where you smoke cigarttes-a lot of restaurants have banned smoking if the are considered a 'family 'restaurant. You cannot even bring kids on the patios.
