The Beaches Toronto Reviews
Jul 25, 2007
Make sure you go down to the boardwalk (sand and water, you know!) at Queen and Woodbine during the day - The Beaches is a very nice area just a streetcar ride away from downtown (approximaetly 15 min of travel time). During the weekend people play volleyball, kite-board, windsurf, suntan and just walk along the boardwalk. Walk down from Queen Street and/or along Queen St as well to shop and eat.

Other things you have to do: Checkout Chinatown, Korea Town, Little Italy, go up the CN Tower, Gay District if your ok with that (politically correct?), Yorkville, Harbourfront, University of Toronto, Castleoma, Lawrence Park (the Park), Canada's Wonderland (for rollercoasters), Vaughan Mills (Shopping), CNE Gounds, Centre Island, Eaton Centre, Club District at night, etc.
I think you can get a general layout of the city by taking the tour bus right away, this will provide with a general idea of what you would like to do after the tour: http://www.torontohippotours.com/
