Be sure to have dinner in the CN Tower, if it's still called that. You have dinner atop a rotating tower which gives a great view of the city. Also, I thought that Casa Loma was great to see. Mind you, I did all this in 1980 ... anyone know if these two sites are still worthy of a visit?

For shopping, if you like funky, go down Queen Street, which is full of shops. You can have dinner in some great rooftop gardens along Bloor Street and will usually find live music. If you like museums check out the ROM (Royal Ontario Museum) or the Ontario Science Centre. The waterfront is full of great things to do, from sightseeing to shopping to watching craftsmen do their trade (we saw a terrific glass blower) at Harbourfront, and there is an IMAX theatre there. The Skydome is right there, you can try for a Blue Jays game, but I don't know their schedule or how easy it is to get tickets. The subway is pretty clean and efficient, a great way to get around. If you want to see some shows, there is a kiosk on Yonge St (near Eaton Centre?) which offers discount tickets to many of the plays and dinner shows. Eaton Centre is a big mall right downtown. The Toronto Zoo is one of the best, too. Also, if you're from the States, save all your reciepts from shopping and hotels, maybe food too, and you can get reimbursed for some of the taxes (GST? PST?) at the duty free shops when you cross back to the States. They give you a voucher for the amount which you can spend in the duty free shop, which is the best (cheapest) place to get many things like designer perfumes, all kinds of liquor and beer, etc. I can't remember exactly how it works, so check it out on your way there if possible.

If you keep your receipts, you will be refunds the 7% Goods and Services Tax (GST) at the border/customs when you leave Canada. This only applies to goods leaving the country and unfortunately doesn't apply to hotels or restaurants. I host asian visitors, so I do this a lot.
