Ripley’s Aquarium Toronto | Toronto Travel Guide

Ripley’s Aquarium in Toronto A continuation of my adventure downtown with Redbubble… (psst, there’s a giveaway too! Check it out!) The Ripley’s Aquarium opened in 2013, right next to the CN Tower!

Hey lovelies! Uncle Tetsu’s Japanese Cheesecake – the “it” bakery/cafe that’s on everyone’s lips at the moment! Their supposedly famous Japanese Cheesecakes attract the masses, resulting in hour-long lineups outside their Toronto shop.

The Sheraton Gateway Airport Hotel in Toronto YYZ

Haven’t been able to do it that often but I’ve got a great series of posts lined up for you! On July 1st, I flew out to the city of angels for Anime Expo 2015! However, the night before, I had the pleasure of staying in the Sheraton Gateway Hotel located in Toronto Pearson Airport.
