About Dayna J
Lives in Adelaide, Australia
Since Jun 2014
25-34 year old female
Born and raised in the Australian country, then later moving and living in Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide, I enjoy travelling both to remote and populated locations. For me travelling is about discovering new places, cuisines and cultures. I love being immersed into the local life particularly when it comes to food. I enjoy exploring the cuisines at markets and cafes/restaurants that only the locals go to. Although I prefer the warmer climates so that I can enjoy the sunshine on a beach, I don't mind putting many layers on to explore the local sights and enjoy snuggling up in front of a warm fire.

Portland Variety is a good place to start the day with a great coffee. Although the cafe is a little further out of the main area of Toronto, it is well worth the visit.
For a yummy, affordable breakfast within a diner environment, start your day at Fran's. This place will leave you very satisfied, and ready to take on your busy day in Toronto.
If shopping is your thing, or you need to pick up a few things before heading out for your day in Toronto, visit the Toronto Eaton Centre for a spot of shopping. There are a variety of stores to browse here, and it is centrally located.
The Distillery Historic District is described as a premier arts, culture, and entertainment destination. Take time to look through its unique and contemporary selection of museums, or simply take a stroll around the beautiful old buildings.
St. Lawrence Market is a great place for any foodie to visit. Pick up ingredients for a picnic in a nearby park for lunch.
Canadians love hockey! If you do too — or if you would like to understand why they love the game so much — stop by the Hockey Hall of Fame. Here you can see the largest collection of hockey memorabilia in the world, including the Stanley Cup (the oldest professional North American trophy competition), and try your luck at one of the interactive games on offer.
With over 16,000 aquatic animals, Ripley's Aquarium in Toronto will be sure to keep you amused for quite some time. This aquarium has North America's longest underwater viewing tunnel, which holds 5.7 million liters of water!
On a visit to Toronto, you cannot miss taking in the views of Lake Ontario, and some of the best can be enjoyed from Woodbine Beach.
The CN Tower in Toronto is over 550 meters tall, and in 1995 it was classified as one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World by the American Society of Civil Engineers! Visit the top of the tower for magnificent views of Toronto and Lake Ontario.
Home to a lot of charm, and some great chefs who make delicious food, Woodlot is one of my top recommendations for dinner while in Toronto.
While in Canada, be sure to join the locals at a sports game! Baseball is one great option, as not only is the game entertaining, but the crowds and the food are also part of the fun. Great fun for the whole family, whether you catch an afternoon or an evening game.
Stout Irish Pub is a warm and inviting place with a fireplace, perfect for when the weather gets a little chilly, and a good spot for a few drinks or a full evening meal. The staff are lovely too, and will happily give you recommendations for what to order.
