Sorry for going MIA on you there for a couple of days. I was actually back in Toronto visiting friends and family for the past week and decided to take a little break from blogging. It felt good to just be with my people and visit my favorite places. Which reminded me, I never got around to sharing those favorites with you while I was still living there.
If you’re new here, I was born and raised in Toronto, Canada. I lived there until I was 18 before moving to Montreal for school and NYC for a few years. I returned back to my hometown (or “The 6ix” as my homeboy Drake calls it) at 24 and lived there for 3 more years before moving to San Francisco. So I have a solid 21 years of Toronto under my belt.
While I was home last week I decided to bring you along as I toured my top favorites (the ones I HAD to visit while I was in Toronto) so join me as I explore some of my not-to-miss places!
Keep in mind, Toronto is HUGE. It’s the 4th largest city in North America and the GTA has over 8 million people. The city itself is quite sprawling, so while I tried to include a variety of locations, the reality is that I tended to explore more in my neighborhood the last few years (King West) and uptown near where my parents live. I did, however include a few in the east and west ends.
So without further ado, here is The Health Nut’s Guide to Toronto:
