City of Neighbourhoods Ep. 5: Harbourfront

Visiting the Harbourfront is a perfect way to spend a day or a night in the city. It’s really unfortunate that many people who visit our city don’t realize how gorgeous our waterfront is. Yes, we’re known for busy streets and high-rises but, come on! The Harbourfront deserves more recognition. Don’t believe me? Watch the vlog […]

City of Neighbourhoods Ep. #3: Entertainment District

Here is the third stop on my City of Neighbourhoods tour! Although many people pass off the Entertainment District as a tourist area, as a local I spend a bunch of time there!

The Donut Guide to Toronto

There is no snack more Canadian than a classic donut. While Tim Hortons donuts are good on points of convenience and price, Toronto’s donut scene has so much more to offer for your taste buds. We’re a city that loves donuts so much that last year someone created a donut map of the TTC! Use […]

If you haven’t checked it out or it’s been a while since you’ve visited, do yourself a favour and go exploring! […]
