Continuing the trend of summer travel discussion…going to Toronto for 5 days in July. Planning to see Niagara Falls, a Jays game, and otherwise just wander around the city. We’re staying in a hotel situated in the center of the city. Maybe the Hockey HOF. Anything else that is a must see or at a minimum “you should really check out”. 
Totally be up for any cool music venues, museums, or anything else really.

Look up Artpark for the days you're in the Niagara Falls area.  When I went, they were doing free summer concerts with really big names.  I saw Cheap Trick for free and I think .38 Special was the next week.  It was a while ago though, not sure what they have planned this summer.

You could check out the CN Tower if no one going has a vertigo issue.


If you have children Ripley's Aquarium might be worth going to see. Haven't been but friends have said it was pretty impressive.  The Toronto Zoo along the same lines.


The main entertainment district where the CN Tower, Scotia Bank Arena, Rogers Center , museums and so forth would be one area to find things to do.  You'd need to check out what plays or types of musical entertainment are happening during your projected stay or just wing it.   

There's Casa Loma which looks like somewhere Henry VIII might have lived.

You're going during the summer so TIFF is not and option. The Toronto International Film Festival runs in September.

Lastly, talk to as many locals as you can. They'll tell you how they live in the center of the universe and how great they are. It'll be a hoot.:)

My wife and I enjoyed a meal at Elephant & Castle. I believe it’s either a small franchise or a family owned place that has more than one restaurant. It’s off of Yonge St, but the fact you are staying near the HHOF, you are like 5 mins away. The Eaton Centre is a good mall if you need anything. If you are on the Canada side of the Falls, you should try booking a dinner at The Keg Steakhouse. There are two of them there but you want the one that is inside Embassy Suites because it’s on an upper floor with glass windows that overlooks the falls, and it’s set up in a way that pretty much 80% of the place has a view while they eat, when done you are a very short walk from Fallsview Casino. Back to Toronto, we did a boat cruise, you basically get a small tour of the area that doesn’t take more than an hour, but for me the cool thing was being in a boat on Lake Ontario, I thought it was cool. A nice little town is Niagara On The Lake. To get there you drive through wine country, and you see vineyard signs of the rich and famous, like Gretzky. But the town is a nice old school place just to walk around and enjoy yourself.

Sounds amazing.  Definitely need to get our passports in order.

Elephant and Castle is a chain. Not sure of it's scope anymore as the one that was up here closed down decades ago.

Last time I spent time in Toronto with my daughter (she lives there now), I found a nice little craft beer place downtown on Spadina called "Bar Hop". I recommend it if you're a beer guy and have some time and liver cells to kill. Great selection.

You could go to the Royal Ontario Museum. There's a ton of shit in there, and to be honest, you wouldn't even get through all of it if you were in there for a full day.

https://www.rom.on.ca/en


You could take the ferry over to Center Island and walk around. You get a pretty cool view of the city from that perspective


https://www.torontoisland.com/center.php


Music Venues: I'd look and see what's playing at the Horseshoe Tavern out on Queen Street West. Plus going down thay way there's a ton of intersting stores to just wanderby and check out.

https://www.horseshoetavern.com/


The Science Center up off of Don Mills is cool if you have kids in tow, or if you just wanted to see something different. We used to go at least 2x a year when I was growing up


https://www.ontariosciencecentre.ca/



Kensington Market is always cool to walk around


http://www.kensington-market.ca/Default.asp?id=home&l=1


Late night spot for Dessert, D Spot is good


https://dspotdessert.com/



You can always wander underground for a few miles downtown, There's a literal mall that runs from Union Station to the Eaton Center


https://www.toronto.ca/explore-enjoy/visitor-services/path-torontos-downtown-pedestrian-walkway/


Too many restaurants to mention. Tons of stuff downtown, but also up at Yonge and Eglington,
 Chinatown (Spadina from College down to Queen)     https://www.destinationtoronto.com/neighbourhoods/westside/chinatown/
The Danforth if you like Greek Food, https://greektowntoronto.com/  
Bloor Street east of Avenue Road. 
There's a really good Jewish Deli up on Bathurst near Lawrence called United Bakers.    https://unitedbakers.ca/

Toronto has amazing ethnic food. One of the most multi-cultural cities in the world. You can find just about any cuisine in the world there.

If you like amusement parks, check out Canada's Wonderland which is just a little north of Toronto.

https://www.canadaswonderland.com/

It's world-class quality and home of some record-holding roller coasters (such as the Yukon Striker which is tallest, fastest, and longest dive coaster in the world).  In fact it has 17 roller coasters, which makes it second in the world (only after Six Flags Magic Mountain).
