Looking for a big city adventure? A weekend getaway shopping spree? A fun-filled weekend watching sports? Look no further than Toronto. Home to over 2 million people, Toronto is an incredibly ethnically diverse city - which means incredibly diverse and unique restaurants, a booming arts and culture scene, and price points to match any traveller's budget. Toronto is also a great jumping off point for other Ontario adventures. Head west along Lake Ontario to Niagara Falls and feel the mist on your face from one of the world's 7 natural wonders. Head east along Lake Ontario to Prince Edward County, Ontario's newest and hottest wine region. Or hop on a quick ferry south to the Toronto Island and enjoy beach days and breathtaking views of one of Canada's most impressive skylines.
Getting to Toronto from Pearson International Airport is quick and easy, with a number of affordable ground transportation options available. For the cheapest ride, coming in at less than $5, you can take the #52 bus (Lawrence West) from Terminal 3 to Lawrence Station. Transfer to the subway and head south to Union Station. For a combination of affordability and convenience, at less than $15, take the LINK airport shuttle to Terminal 1, and hop on the UP Express, a direct overground train from the airport down to Toronto's Union Station (with 2 quick stops). If you're looking for the quickest ride, you can catch a rideshare or a taxi into the city's centre for around $40-$50. If opting for a taxi, be sure to check local traffic, as driving can often be a lengthier choice than the UP depending on the time of day. Toronto has a robust public transit system, complete with overground streetcars, underground subways, and busses. Wherever you're going, you can find an affordable way around with the TTC. If you're planning a big day all over the city, consider a day pass to save money. If you're exploring on a nice day, consider picking up a set of wheels from Toronto's Bike Share program. There are stations located all across the city, and with a great bike lane system, you can easily get around while enjoying the fresh air.
Hotels in Toronto can be pricey, especially during peak travel dates or when events are underway.
