Since I now basically live right next door to New York, I decided to break my recent tradition of visiting the city in December and head to the Great White North instead. I got just a little taste of Toronto when I visited Niagara Falls last year, and have been itching to go explore it ever since. But really, do you even need a reason when your bestie lives 40 minutes south of The Six?
Queen Vegan promised to take me on just one touristy sightseeing adventure and Casa Loma was it. As it turns out, the 7-floor, 98-room castle atop Davenport Hill is one of Toronto’s best-kept secrets, especially at Christmastime.
