Your Day Trip Guide to Toronto

August 22, 2017 by Taylor Pecko-Reid

Only have 24 hours in Toronto? Not a problem. While the city has so much to see and most of your time will be spent checking out sessions during CHEST 2017, take some time to yourself to explore this wonderful city.

6:30 A.M.

Rise and shine! Wake up bright and early to catch the sunrise from Toronto’s Eastern Beaches, known for it’s spectacular view of the sunrise. Once you’ve gotten your fix, take the TTC to St. Lawrence Market to grab a bagel or sandwich, and then make your way to Metro Toronto Convention Centre to begin your day at CHEST 2017.

*Note: The TTC is one of the most convenient and affordable ways to get around town and it gets you to all of the hot spots within the city. A single fare purchase will cost you $3.25 CAD, but we suggest buying a day pass for $12.50 CAD.

As your day comes to a close, take some time to admire the gorgeous skyline that is downtown Toronto. If you’re lucky, you’ll stay within the downtown area and be able to view how much more beautiful the city becomes at night.
