What to expect

Explore all of the downtown gems in a completely new way. Ditch the car, and walk or bike while you explore what Toronto has to offer. The trip has an optional “scavenger hunt" so there is something for you to find and decode at each stop.

Itinerary

Stop 1

Start your day at a funky cafe in the city! Make that coffee a large to fuel the walking you’re about to do. Walk time to the second stop is 10 minutes.

Can you find the hidden letters on the floor? 

Stop 2

Stroll the streets and learn about some of Toronto’s history. We’ve recommended a few hidden gems in the heart of the city to take photos. Walk time to the third stop is 7 minutes.

Can you find the hidden lobby in the heart of the city?

Stop 3

There’s something for everyone in your group at this next spot. Time to grab lunch and venture to our favourite park, which very few tourists (and even locals) know about. Walk time to the fourth stop is 14 minutes.

Can you find the missing word to complete the message?

Stop 4

End your day with shops, food, photo ops, and more local history. If you want to keep going, we’ve recommended a great biking route to explore more gems along the Toronto waterfront!

Frequently Asked Questions

We're here to help!

This trip is a little bit different, as we recommend walking between stops! You will be heading into downtown Toronto, and the total distance from the first to the last stop is 35 min (2.8km).

If you’re taking the train into Union Station, it is a 10 minute walk to the first stop and 25 minutes back from the last. If you drive, this will depend on where you choose to park. The website linked here will give you a good idea of where lots are, however you’ll be able to find street parking around too
