When visiting Toronto, you must go see a show. I am not kidding when I say that the theater productions are as good, if not better than NY! The Theaters are located downtown.
Fondest memory: My fondest memory is this past July when my friends and I were strolling through Kensington Market and a thunderstorm errupted and caugt us in the rain! It was a STEAMY afternoon. And it seemed like the rain evaporated when it hit the concrete. It was so refreshing to walk and sit in the rain. Great times...

Second City Theater: This alone is worth the trip. I was a big fan of SCTV when it came out. I still follow all the actors from that era of Second City as well. The cast was unbelievably good. They are obviously the cream of the crop in terms of improv comics.
Fondest memory: Again, Second City ... no contest.
Favorite thing: See a show! Toronto has one of the nicest theatre districts.Many people were I live make a special day trip to Toronto just to see a show.I saw 'The Phantom of the Opera' at the Pantages Theatre and it was outstanding. It played there for years, but now I think 'The Lion KIng' is playing there now! I will have to go see this show too!Also try to take a tour of the Pantages, if you get the chance. It is very historical and beautiful!
