The trip back down to the bottom of the tower was surprisingly the part that took the longest! It was an attraction that I rather enjoyed, but not one you can spend a lot of time at.
Casa Loma on the other hand – you could spend hours there! I wish I hadn’t been so ill so that I could have spent more time exploring through this old castle, and then through the beautiful gardens.

My favourite part was definitely the stunning grounds, which I wish I’d had more time to explore. Coming in a close second however, was the underground tunnel. Dark, creepy, and so full of history!

With only 2 locations left on my “CityPASS”, my next point of interest was the Royal Ontario Museum, or ‘ROM’ as it’s called by the locals. I rushed down there after college and spent a couple of hours in the museum before it closed for the evening.
This is another tourist attraction that I wish I’d had more time to spend at. I admit I was surprised by the high entry fee, having been used to the museum back home in Adelaide being free, but when I discovered the size of the museum it made a bit more sense.

There was actually so many exhibits, with so much to learn, that I could really only skim the surface of it all. If I’d had the time, I would have loved to return and spend a whole day there.
My favourite part though? Definitely the dinosaurs!

The last tourist attraction on my “CityPASS” was the Ontario Science Centre. I’m sure it is probably a great place to see but I felt like science centres are the sort of thing you need to do with friends. Interacting with displays alone? Probably not so much fun…
I gave it a miss and called it a day for my Toronto tourist adventures!
