Day 2. After a long road trip one our first day, it’s time to actually see Toronto. First thing is first, though, we needed to get my Scotiabank Waterfront Marathon and Half Marathon packet. That required getting on a school bus and taking the shuttle to Exhibition Place, which sits off the Western Channel of Lake Ontario. After getting my packet, we took a short walk to Toronto Inukshuk Park, which was a quiet area with runners, boats and a waterfront park with memorials.
We continued to follow the waterfront trail through the Toronto Music Gardens, Spadina WaveDeck, and finally settled in for lunch at the Amsterdam BrewHouse. There, you can eat delicious, fresh food with amazing views of the waterfront- puppies included!
That evening, we had Nutella crepes from Sobeys Urban Fresh’s Nutella Cafe. We then took a walk to Nathan Phillips Square, where locals were gathered to watch the Toronto Blue Jays play the Cleveland Indians. There, I tried poutine and finished our night in Canada’s largest city square relaxing.
