public parking

by dupuis48

I read online that there is public parking one block from Westin harbour castle in toronto. We find the parking way too pricey. I obtained this room for 60.00 USD and the parking is 30.00, 50% wow. Please let me know where I can save precious canadian dollars and park for cheaper. Thanks from Penetanguishene, ONT

Ouch $30?!? Well it is downtown core Toronto. I guess I shouldn't be too surprised. I don't know of any off the top of my head but the lots that are in the area change price like stocks. It all depends on what events are going on downtown. If Leafs are playing and other big events at Rogers Centre, parking goes way up. All I can suggest is take a look at the Green P site maybe?

Across the street from the harbourfront centre 9Lower Simcoe and Queen's Quay) there's an above ground parking lot. I think the daily rates are about $12.00 and they are not affected by what's happening at the Air Canada centre, unlike other outdoor lots.

Travel Tips for Toronto

Cheap, Cheap, Cheap!

by JoannaL

I would suggest that every person who comes to Toronto go to the Art Gallery, (AGO), the Beaches (in the summer) and the club district. As I said before, there is something for everyone. The people in Toronto from afar seem distant and curt, but if you ask someone a question they will be most helpful and polite. I would like to nominate Canada as the most polite country in the world!

Streets East/West Division

by kehale

One thing about Toronto is all of the streets that run in an East/West direction are divided that way (i.e. Queen St East and Queen St West). This is something important to pay attention to if you are on your way somewhere - make sure you are familiar with whether your location is located on the East or West portion of the Street.
The dividing point for all of these streets in Yonge St. So quite obviously - all streets change at this point - so everything is East, east of Yonge (i.e. Queen St East, King St East, Bloor St East) and everything west is... well WEST! (i.e. Queen St West, King St West, Bloor St West).
May seem like a simple thing - but if you're not from the city and you're not paying attention its a simple thing like this that can get you lost on the way to your destination. May also be helpful in picking your hotel location! Just something to keep in mind when you're visiting the city!

Toronto Is Like a Box of Chocolates

by MissAntarctica2002

...you never know what you're gonna get. Couldn't resist ripping off Forrest Gump for this tip.

Kidding aside, one of the cool things about Toronto is that at any given time there's likely something interesting or off the wall happening. Often, things are going on right where you happen to be. If, like me, you're always open to new experiences, it can be pretty cool.

Here are some of the off-the-wall things I have seen in Toronto purely by chance:

-a competiton of 10 Filipino marching bands
-rear entrance of Bay Queen St. store made up to look like Madison Square Garden for a movie shoot
-a car completely covered in plastic bugs
-Roman centurions marching through the PATH underground
-the Surreal Gourmet's ToasterMobile

And, of course there is the usual assortment of movie shoots and celebrity sightings that anyone who's spent much time in Toronto can attest to.

Go with the flow and have fun!

Flip out a map of the city!

by sanity_or_bust

It is amazing how helpful the Canadian people are. If you need help locating where you are or where you want to go just flip out a map of the city. The residence of Canada will approach you to offer help. I have never met such helpful people.

As for the escalator, you definitely want to stand to the right and walk to the left. The people in Canada do not want to stand behind you on an escalator and wait because you are on the right.

Do the things you know are courteous, like holding the door for others. The people in Canada are courteous.

We're friendly, honest.

by MissAntarctica2002

I've heard several people comment that Torontonians are cold and unfriendly. I can see how they might get that impression, but I think their conclusion is wrong.

Most people in Toronto are indeed friendly, but because it is a big city with a lot going on, people will seldomly greet a stranger on the street or things like that. If you spoke to someone you are likely to find them warm, helpful and friendly.

I think because Toronto is more crowded than most other areas of Canada, people try to give each other space by not always greeting each other on the street or striking up conversations in elevators and things.
