The hilly, north California city of San Francisco, surrounded by the San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean, is one of America’s most visited cities. It’s known for its Golden Gate Bridge, a world renowned red suspension bridge; Alcatraz Island, an island prison once home to some of the US’ worst criminals; Fisherman’s Wharf, a touristy waterfront neighbourhood; its many pastel coloured Victorian homes and of course its iconic cable cars. There are so many things to do in San Francisco that it can be quite overwhelming to plan a visit there. So, in this post, I will be sharing an itinerary of how to spend the perfect day in the city! I’m not exactly a local to San Francisco, however I was born just outside of the city and I have visited quite a few times over the years, so I do know the city considerably well.
Welcoming over 40 million visitors annually, Ontario’s capital, Toronto, is the largest city in Canada. It is one of the world’s most diverse cities, with over half of its citizens having been born outside of the country. From the world’s third tallest tower, the CN Tower; to the first stadium in the world to have a fully retractable roof, the Rogers Centre; Toronto is home to many popular and unique attractions. In this post I will be writing about my suggestions on what to do in Toronto if you only have a day in the city, by giving you a one day itinerary on what to do to see as much of the city as you possibly can in one day. I lived just outside of Toronto for about a quarter of my life, and both sides of my family have lived in Toronto and in its suburbs for a combined total of about eighty years, so I know the city pretty well.
