  • Passport
  • Tickets


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.
