Our Family Trip to Toronto, Ontario

“Running through the 6” with my fam!

I am no stranger to beautiful getaways to Toronto. I grew up visiting Canada’s largest city to visit my aunt and cousin.

Visiting Toronto was always my favourite time of the year. Every summer, we’d pack our bags and head over to spend a week with family – and I was thrilled every single time. In fact, my father still talks about how my eyes would open up real wide as soon as they’d share the news about or trip. Apparently, I’d hurry up to them excitedly and (repeatedly) ask, “Are we going to Toronto?!”

Now, I’m continuing the tradition with my very own family. We make it a point to go as often as possible and, of course, with the same mission: to visit my aunt and cousin.

This little blog post will be a quick one, but I decided to link and highlight some of our favourite places in T-Dot. We took a really quick trip (2 nights!) so we didn’t get to visit some of our usual spots, but here’s a little list. Enjoy!
