Fab 5 Places to Visit in Toronto by Promet Source


Promet Source, headquartered in Toronto's Sister City, Chicago, is super excited to offer Drupal 8 Crash Course (for Non-Devs) at Drupal North. We love Toronto so much we wanted to share our Fab Five spots to check out while you're there.


1. Sorry Coffee

What's more Canadian than saying "Sorry"? Did you know Ontario has a law that states someone can say sorry and not be admissible for a crime? But the name isn't the only thing that makes Sorry awesome. About a 10-minute walk from the Toronto Reference Library, this coffee shop has a chill vibe, great (read: strong) coffee, and their chocolates are incredible! 


2. The Village of Yorkville Park

Just a few steps outside Sorry is a small park for a big escape from the city. Built in the 1990s, this park is the opposite of Joni Mitchell's song, "Big Yellow Taxi." It literally used to be a parking lot. If the weather permits, it's a great place to chill out for a few minutes between meetings. 


3. Type Books 

Toronto has a lot of awesome bookstores and Type Books is one of them. With two Toronto locations, 883 Queen Street West (across from Trinity Bellwoods Park), and 427 Spadina Road (in Forest Hill Village) you're sure to pick up something to read on your commute. They frequently host authors, so if you're in the area often check out who might be visiting. 


4. Bata Shoe Museum

That's right, a shoe museum! And not just any old museum. The Bata Shoe Museum has the world's largest and most comprehensive collection of shoes and footwear-related artifacts. This museum boasts over 13,000 artifacts and spans 4,500 years of history. It’s located just an 18-minute walk from the Toronto Reference Library on Bloor Street. 


5. Old Toronto

Last but not least, if you haven't already checked out Old Toronto, then do it this trip. Old Toronto has a good number of really interesting buildings and history to geek out on. If you like walking tours, a great one to try is the Free Walking Tour Toronto. Even if you're from the area, the tour will entertain and teach you something new.
