CN Tower - how long to allow? (9 Replies)
We plan on visiting the CN Tower on Tues 20th June in the morning, and booking a tour of the Steam Whistle brewery nearby for 11:30. What time should we plan to do the CN Tower? Is 10:30 (giving us an hour) enough, or should we go earlier? Any idea on queues that time of day? And is there some kind of audio guide / info that makes it longer than just 'getting a few pics' ?

Before you book anything, consider flipping these two activities. Take the very first Steam Whistle Brewery Tour of the day at 11:00 am, then have lunch at the 360 Restaurant at the top of the CN Tower. It costs $36 each to ascend the tower but this charge is included in the cost of your meal (prix fixe 2-course lunch is $58 each, but there are other options, too, take a look at the on-line menu). The end result is, for an incremental cost of $22 you get a full meal and a much more...More

Toronto First time, additional suggestions (12 Replies)
Hi all, First time visit to Toronto upcoming. I am from Chicago, and for my birthday I wanted to visit a city I've never been. I picked Toronto, even though it is cold when I will be going (Feb 12-16), I am from Chicago so it won't be much of a bother. I have a few ideas of what I want to do after some research, but was hoping for some other suggestions. After reading over my list of what we plan to do, eat, etc, I think that gives a good idea of what sort of things we enjoy, but overall...More

The St. Lawrence Market is closed on Sunday and Monday so you are aware...also with Valentine's Day, you want to make a firm reservation as it will be busy at nice places that day...I'd also suggest going to the Distillery District and checking out Mill St Brewery and possibly El Catrin if you like Mexican tapas..

Response fromphpr|
depending on what time you leave from Niagara it is entirely possible you will be in the midst of the morning Rush hour traffic - rush hour typically runs from about 6:30 am - 10am, and could be worse as there is ongoing construction on the Gardiner Xpressway into downtown - hopefully someone who commutes in from that direction can comment. Personally I'd skip Casa Loma, unless you have a burning need to see it. It's not something I'd think would appeal to your age group. I'd also re-think...More
