Toronto in November

We went to Toronto in November with our friend Dante. It’s a great city, and the fourth-largest in North America! Despite this, we found it really pleasant, not too intimidating, and very easy to get around on bike or foot.

We definitely subscribe to the tourism-by-eating philosophy.  What better way to experience a new place?  We had brunch at this place, which is one of the best places in town according to the locals:

We were staying near Chinatown and the Kensington Market, which were great attractions with awesome food!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe last thing we did was take a ferry to the island right next to the city. In the summer it is a popular picnic and beach spot, but in the fall it was pretty deserted except for the few residents. It still had great views though! OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The weather was too crappy to go up the tower, but other than that we felt like we got a really good taste of the city.  We highly recommend Toronto!
