Good Toronto guide websites.
The following is a list of very good Toronto websites that will help you plan your visit. I can vouch for their accuracy since I use them personally myself to find stuff around Toronto.
Toronto.com - http://www.toronto.com/
* General website for everything Toronto. Including events, movie times, restaurants, sports, shopping, and news.
Canada411.ca - http://www.canada411.ca/
* Search engine to find an address or phone number. Type in the name or business you're looking for and it will find it.
Toronto Transit Commission - http://www.ttc.ca/
* Maps, rates, and schedules for Toronto's transit system and surrounding cities.
Eye Magazine - http://www.eye.net/
* Eye is a fringe newspaper in Toronto, but their site has useful information including showtimes and event listings (including clubs).
When in Toronto, you must take...
When in Toronto, you must take in the district known as Queen West. It is fashion district, dance clubs, movies, lots of eateries and home to City TV where Electric Circus and much Music is taped. Chinatown is also nearby. I enjoy the cultural diversity of Toronto where everyone blends in and work together.
Black Creek Pioneer Village
Black Creek Pioneer Village holds more than 50,000 artifacts representative of late 18th and 19th century agricultural, economic, social and cultural development of Upper Canada. Collection strengths include furnishings, decorative arts, textiles, glass, ceramics, tools, books and period clothing, agricultural implements, domestic articles, toys, lamps and lighting equipment.

Pick up the free weekly newspapers on what's happening around the city that week. The eye(http://www.eye.net/) and Now(http://www.nowtoronto.com/) are both great. The amazing fall weather and scenery.
Shopping for bread in the Annex!
I always used to complain that I didn't have anywhere to shop for fresh bread in my hood!
The one day Cobs opened their doors, mostly for breads there are a few sweet and /or savoury treats to be had.
I love the apricot loaf $5.00, the fruit scones and mini apricot rolls are yummy and only $1.00 and the Rodini $3.75 is also a favorite. Both the garlic and parmesan as well as the sweet chili rodini loaf.
They are located on the north side of Bloor St. just west of Spadina Ave.
