If you're into Hockey, you might want to check out the Hockey Hall of Fame. It's a wonderous place

Check out Little Italy (College Street between Bathurst Street and Ossington Avenue) and Greek Town (Danforth) too. Amazing restaurants. All easily accessible by the TTC. Also if you're into record collecting, or just want to check out shops, along Queen St. West is the so called "Entertainment District".

Have Fun.

Going (home) to Toronto on Friday morning for the Thanksgiving weekend! Can't wait!

There's a little street (Baldwin) that runs parallel of College, and it's just behind the hospital (Princess Margaret) which has some very good restaurants. A good Japanese one, very good Thai one, very good Malaysian place too. There are a bunch more, Indian, Italian, etc, and I've always had a nice time eating in that area.

I got the same pic well, with my feet, not yours. When I went there in '97, I got off the elevator and saw a big crowd of people standing around something. My friend and I walked over to see what the fuss was about and voila, glass floor. NOBODY was standing on it, about 25 people were all looking and pointing so my buddy and I just said excuse me, excuse me, walked out to the middle of the floor, took pictures of our feet, gave a stomp and walked off to the incredulous stares of onlookers.

Do you think our smiles are a little forced?

I think we both got the hell off of there the second the last picture was taken!

200? No way! Try 285!!

I'll be there Thursday!

Casa Loma looks nice too but I've never been - a castle in the middle of the city! Maybe others who've been can let us know if it's worth going to...

If you don't go, at least check out the pics below, it's so pretty

http://www.casaloma.org/

Oh, Kensington Market, downtown in Chinatown, is an ecclectic market worth checking out on the weekend

I was planning a trip to see the Leafs play the islanders, but the schedule just didn't work out in our favor. Someday maybe.

CN Tower Yeah, I live here and I've never been up it.

You like sushi? There's a ton of sushi restaurants on Bloor between Spadina and Bathurst

Now for the U2 stuff: There's a great poster shop at 355 Yonge Street - World Of Posters - TONS of U2 stuff Just ask someone who works there for their U2 stuff and they'll show you every one of them Sometimes they have shirts too If you're in Yorkville("celebrity hotspot" of the city), check out Sassafraz - http://www.sassafraz.com. Bono loves to go there when he's in town and there's pictures of him on the wall. Check out the "celebrity sightings" section for a few news clippings. Apparently once the waitresses took him out bowling

Whatever you want though, you'll find in this city Just ask someone to point you in the right direction.

TORONTO! I live there, but am on vacation right now.

If you like sushi, there's a GREAT place on St. Clair just west of Vaughan called Nama Sushi.

And now I'll reiterate what everyone else said: Casa Lome is nice and the CN Tower is also good. I don't go on the glass floor either, lol.

Eaton's Centre has great shopping and Yorkville is nice, yet pricey.

Hockey Hall of Fame is good if you're into hockey. Maybe check out a Leaf game if there are tickets which is doubtful.

Kensington Market is fun as is Chinatown.

Forest Hill is good to stare at the beautiful houses or you could drive to the Bridle Path and then cry yourself to sleep at night thinking about it. Oh and Prince has a house there.

Have fun in Toronto!!
