Terrific Toronto! (150 photos)

A friend of mine had a medical conference scheduled in Toronto April 6th - 11th, so I opted to tag along and take advantage of the free hotel room. The weather wasn't great most of the time I was there (including a little light snow which they'd gone the month of March without), but fortunately I did finally get some decent weather the last day & a half I was there. I tried to hit up many different neighbourhoods, but there are still plenty that I hope to visit whenever I'm able to get back. Despite the weather, I had a fantastic time. Toronto is terrific!

Don't worry, this is the back side of the building. The front is on Queen Street and has retail space (though plenty of empty space currently)

While riding inbound on the Queen Street streetcar, I snapped some photos out the window as we passed from The Beaches into Leslieville.

Wow! An eyepopping tour! You covered a lot of neighbourhoods in that short time... hope you had a TTC daypass to hop on and off the streetcars and subway! In your tenth shot down, on Roncesvalles, you show the interior of Granowska’s bakery. I can't go by that place without stopping in for a treat!

I bought a week pass, though I think I ended up using it about 12 times which meant I broke even with the $36 cost. I was initially reluctant to do anything but walk because I didn't want to miss out on anything in between the various neighbourhoods.
