Trip Reports: @Yehuda's friend
Day Trip @bhys

Toronto:

The Jewish community is broken up in to three main areas
1. "Down South" which is in the area of Bathurst and Lawrence
2. Clanton Park which is a little further north around Bathurst and Sheppard
3. Thornhill which is even further north @ Clark and Bathurst

Downtown, without any traffic is 25 from down south, 30 minutes from clanton park and 35 minutes from Thornhill. Expect those numbers to almost double during rush hour.


Places to eat
There are a ton of fast food type options in the city. There are very few nice restaurants.

Attractions

CN Tower
Toronto's iconic tower, was the tallest freestanding structure in the world from 1975-2007
Nice views, but only if it's a clear day. If it's overcast you'll be surrounded by clouds at the top and you won't be able to see too much.
At the top, there are indoor and outdoor observation decks and a glass floor.
Edgewalk at the CN Tower-
For ~$200 CDN you can walk out (harnessed) on a thin railing-less platform at 116 stories high.
Takes a few hours and is not cheap by any means, but could be cool.

Ripley's Aquarium
Downtown, right next to the CN Tower
288 Bremner Blvd Toronto, ON M5V 3L9
Excellent aquarium. Very expensive

Hockey Hall of Fame
Excellently done. Really cool to be able to touch the cup

Activities on the Way from NY:
  • Krispy Kreme in Scranton - on Moosic Street, under KOA with supervision from local Scranton Rav - R' Fine, recommended by Rabbi Eidlitz from KosherQuest.com via email to @Yehuda
  • Corning Museum of Glass ($20) - large museum of varying glass displays and creations, glass blowing demonstrations, has high reviews although @Yehuda didn't think it was that amazing
  • Watkins Glen State Park (free, $8 parking) - hike in a gorge along several waterfalls, more of an upward step climb than a hike which is quite strenuous, @Yehuda recommends going 20 minutes in to see the first few falls then turning back, if you go the whole 1-1.5 hours you can wait for a shuttle school bus to take you back to the parking lot for $5 cash
  • Letchworth State Park - hot air balloons
  • Finger Lakes - can go on a boat cruise or just find a nice place to pull over for a good lunch spot, @Yehuda took Hwy 14, which runs alongside Seneca Lake and found a grassy area with benches.
  • Strong Museum of Play in Rochester ($15) - not exactly on the most direct route, but a fantastic, huge museum of toys and games (many of which you can play) for all ages
  • Howe Caverns ($25) - boat ride in a cave, but close to Albany, so not on a great route to Toronto
  • Destiny USA https://www.destinyusa.com/directory/entertainment in Syracuse NY is great place to stop for various indoor fun activities...The mall has an escape room, indoor ropes course, virtual reality, mirror maze, lazer tag, trampoline park, mini golf, Dave & Busters, WonderWorks museum/entertainment center and more...I found the prices to be quite reasonable.

It's not 'close' to any shuls, but there are a few that are a 40 minute walk away.
Agudah, Clanton Park etc.
I'm not so familiar with the shuls in the area, but I do know that it's pretty much the only hotel that people stay at on Shabbos if they plan on going to a shul......

Where in Toronto do you need to be closest too? Are you going to be there over shabbat? If you are not going to be there over shabbat than there are lots of options in regards to hotels that are commutable to the Jewish community. However, if you are coming to Toronto for shabbat and want to be near a shul then as mentioned earlier, the closest hotel to the Jewish community along Bathurst that I know of is the Holiday Inn located at Yorkdale Rd and Hwy 401. And in regards to closest I mean like a 45 minute walk give or take (or you can say YMMV which would be fitting here right? :) )

Anyways to say closest hotel to Bathurst Street doesn't really help even a Torontonian like myself considering that the Jewish community in Toronto is situated along a 10 mile stretch of road going North-South. However like I said before there aren't any hotels located directly on this stretch and for shabbat the closest hotel is the Holiday Inn, however if this is not an issue then there are many more options throughout the city that are commutable to a shul.

If it helps there is an Orthodox shul in Downtown Toronto near plenty of hotels, however I've never gone there and only heard that davening there can be a bit strange.

Hope this helps.
