Tackle Toronto: Where to Shop.

I often get emails from readers asking for tips on where to find the best Toronto haunts. Whether it’s shopping, eating or simply something fun to do on a Sunday afternoon, I’ve put together a quick guide to Toronto from my eyes. Check-out my “where to eat” guide and stay tuned the rest of the week where I’ll be sharing my “what to do” and “must try” guides to tackling this wonderful city. And if you have any recommendations, feel free to chime in! I’m always on the hunt for a new stomping ground.
