What should I do in Toronto?

My wife and I are going to Toronto in early November. Its a work trip for me. We'll have a one year old with us but we're pretty mobile with him. She'll have time to do her thing while I'm at tech conferences. We were thinking about adding a few days so I could enjoy the city as well. My initial look at airbnbs and rental cars indicates that they're well priced.

I'm curious to hear pointers on visiting the city. We'd probably go for walks and visit museums or other cultural centers.

Tell me what to do!

Definitely look into mass transit. I attended a class many years ago with our children.. the youngest was only 1. A backpack carrier was the best device.. the stroller stayed in the hotel. We actually never took our car out of the hotel parking lot. The weather can be capricious so pack accordingly. Sadly many of the funky fun neighborhoods are being rapidly replaced with soulless towers of steel and glass....

Interesting neighborhoods to stroll: Kensington Market (young, funky, maybe not so easy with a stroller); adjacent Chinatown; College St. west of Spadina; The Distillery District (festival market/restaurants); and The Beaches area on Queen St. East. Art Gallery of Ontario and Ontario Science Center are rewarding afternoons.

Yeah, Kensington and the AGO as well as Chinatown which is purportedly the largest outside of NYC

Walk the PATH if it rains. Even if it doesn’t given you are going in November. 30 km of underground walkways with restaurants and shopping.

CN Tower.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

The old school macresource answer is "hookers & booze", but with all the newer users and #metoo attitudes, I won't say that.

Be sure to check out the Hockey Hall of Fame.

Toronto Island Park is cool to spend time at with different islands to explore. But I don't know how much is open in the winter. Nice view of the city from there.

The conference will be downtown. Undecided regarding days before and after.

Good suggestions for downtown. Distillery and The Beaches might be a bit far. St. Lawrence Market is great, especially if you are interested in lunch.
