A few years ago, I made a Pinterest board of exciting things to do in Toronto, and after trying (and failing) to fit them in with other plans we had, we finally decided to just take a day and go do "all the things." And it was such a fun day. So I will share some of it today and the rest of it on Thursday.
We drove into the city, parked at our favourite parking lot (Yes, we have a favourite - ha!), and then spent the rest of the day on foot (except for one streetcar ride). The kids were troopers as we had walked about 15 kilometres (9 miles) by the end of the day.
We then walked to the Distillery District which was our main event for the day. The Distillery District is 47 buildings known as the Gooderham & Worts Distillery. A group of developers turned it into a shopping/restaurant/gallery centre and it is a truly amazing place to visit. You can read more about it here. What I particularly loved, and was fascinated by, were all the outdoor art installations.
This lock artwork was incredible. I was so intrigued by it.
