Tip 1

Review your traveling plans. Firstly, you have to determine the activities you hope to engage in when you get there. There are varieties of attractions in Toronto, both indoors and outdoors. So, your list of things to pack must entail what you will need while you are there. A nice outfit is needed if you’ll be visiting a theatre or going out to a fancy restaurant, yeah? If you’ll be hiking the Don Valley, you’ll need shorts or pants, hiking boots or any other good walking shoes. If you are planning to spend some time at the beach, want to go boating or canoeing, make sure you don’t forget your bathing suit.

Tip 2

Toronto is very walk-able, so you can come along with a few pairs of shoes, high-heels will most likely not do the trick. Although, you could wear the heels or dressy flats at night, just in case you want to be more classy or fancier at night. We traveled with some local friends, neighbors, and entrepreneurs from our hometown in Arizona.  My family was celebrating 10 years in business at www.MesaTowingServices.com.

Tip 3

Make plans to relish the outdoors and the varieties of available recreational activities. You can walk in any of the parks, follow the riding path along the lake on roller blades, bike on a trail or even play golf.

Tip 4

Don’t forget your passport! All visitors are going to Canada, even residents of the United States must present their passport when crossing the border by train, car or plane. Without your passport, you won’t be allowed into the country. Residents of some country may require a visa as well.


The centre of the city is quite easy to navigate, most of the attractions are even situated within walking distance of each other, and a subway system is used to cover the long journeys.

Resorts that aren’t recommended at all

There are some resorts that aren’t recommended at all. Meaning that there are some better resorts in the area that are going to give you more value for money. However, to find these resorts can be hard and tricky. This is because there are too many resorts that are trying to make money, without considering that the tourist or guest should have the best experience ever. If you are worried that you might have made a booking at a resort that isn’t recommended at all, then these tips and tricks will let you find out if they are giving you value for money or not.

What are the reviews saying?

The first thing that you need to know is what are the reviews saying about the resort? If you didn’t read a review yet, then it might be time to start reading reviews, before you are making any bookings.

Normally, people are telling the truth when it comes to resorts. And, you can trust what most of the reviews are saying. If they say that this is the worst resort they have ever visited, then it might be a great idea to rather start looking for another resort. Don’t make a booking at any resort without reading a couple of reviews.

Consider 4-star or 5 -star resorts

If you are going to visit a foreign country, you should not make a booking to resorts that have fewer stars than a 4 star. This is going to lower the quality of the resort, and you might just find yourself in a resort that is really the worst resort in the world.

It is more recommended that you are considering 4-star resorts or 5-star resorts if you are looking for a resort that is going to give you value for money.

Is the resort a lot cheaper than other resorts?

Another thing that you can look for, is if the resort is a lot cheaper than other resorts. If this is the case, then you should make sure that you don’t make the booking at the resort without doing further investigation. Investigation about the type of resort and what people are saying about the resort.

It is sometimes a great idea to make a booking at a cheap resort, but you don’t want to stay at one of the worst resorts in the country. You are normally getting what you paid for.

Do they have space available, even on short notice?

High-quality resorts are fully booked in advance. If you can get accommodation on a very short notice and they are saying that there are a lot of available space, you should see this as a red light. Why are there so many bookings at the resort? Even if this is the time when everyone is looking for accommodation.

The last thing that you want is to stay at one of the worst resorts in the world. And, if you aren’t going to do your homework before you are making the bookings, this is exactly what you might get. Too many people are making the mistake of booking at resorts without doing research beforehand. You don’t want to end up with a holiday that you want to rather forget.
