    Beautiful parks and beaches entice a trip to the small group of islands in Lake Ontario. Ferries take you from the foot of Bay Street to the about 3 km off the port located Toronto Beaches.

    Gateway to the largest city in Canada. Mayor Rob Ford transitions through here so it's not a bad deal. If you're like me, you will be picked up and driven here, it's so large it's nutty.

    In Terminal 1? The cheapest spot for food and drinks is waaay out at F88. If you've got time, the Canadian Bagel co. will make you an awesome breakfast sandwich and a cocktail.

    Good airport with free WiFi, Tim Horton's and plenty of charging stations and iPads by the gates. Only downside is lack of carts past security checkpoint, so travel light.

    What a great airport! I love the open self service Relays, the open floor restaurants tables, free water refills, clean and new bathrooms. The staff is veeeery relaxed!

    You can't check in to a flight more than 6 hours early here. Apparently it takes a long time to get anywhere fun, too. Don't expect to check out Toronto with a long layover. Just enjoy a nice airport.

    Take a photo of 'esteemed' Toronto Mayor Rob Ford greeting travelers on one of his chirpier photos in happier days - just after you exit Customs.

    A pretty nice airport. Free WiFi and exceptional service from the airport staff. Toronto Pearson International Airport is easily the best airport I've ever been privileged to go to!

    Must see: Lake Louise, a large turquoise lake running from the thousands year old glacier in Alberta, Canada. It is home to one of North America's finest downhill ski areas.

    When at a gate waiting for a flight, be sure to sit at one of the chairs with a power receptacle. Great access to charge your mobile devices while you wait for boarding.

    Love traveling back to states from Toronto. The iPod stations are awesome, food good and staff excellent. One of the best spots to relax while waiting.

    The multi disciplinary Royal Ontario Museum is Canada's biggest natural history museum and one of the largest museums in North America. It's a must visit while in Toronto!

    nice airport w free internet & nice food court. If you are going to the US, prepare yourself by checking in early you will go through security first before going to the gates..

    Even if they have Internet is not very easy to get the signal when you are outside immigration... Nice airport though!!!! Easy to get into the city (Rocket 192 leave you at Kipling subway station)

    Must visit: Rogers Centre formerly known as SkyDome is a multi-purpose stadium in Toronto. Being a sports venue, it also hosts a wide range of other large scale events like trade fairs, concerts etc.

    For all those people that park on the side of the road or endlessly drive in a circle waiting to pick up in arrivals - just follow the signs for CELL PHONE PARKING. It is free parking while you wait.

    The new transborder process means you can't just walk through with your Global Entry slip. You are required to speak to an agent to be cleared. It has slowed down the process quite a bit!

    This has to be one of the best int'l terminals that I've ever visited. Clean Customs, food choices, free Wi-Fi, the top it off with a fitness center.

    Getting free wi-fi to connect can be tricky. If you cycle you wifi on and off before connecting to the airport wifi, it will go much more smoothly.

    Be sure to have the right money for the shuttle bus to the metro or they won't let you on. I know, easier said than done when you've only just arrived in the country!

    If your flight is canceled due to weather, don't bother using ACs N desk to get your free accommodation. Last night the line was at least 6 hours long. Cool #AirCanada strategy to avoid paying !

    If you are in terminal one and have some time to kill before your flight, stop at Apropos for some snacks and charge your electronics. They have an ipad and charging station at every seat.

    The continental breakfast is nice and reasonably priced. There was no loss of luggage and the flight was quite relaxing and peaceful with no complaints.

    On the lower level Gates 101to112, there is ONE outlet on the phone station using the public TTY. Yes you CAN plug in and sit on the window ledge to relax and recharge ;-)

    If you flight gets canceled, return your duty free bottles to the Duty Free Shop (it's open all night) otherwise with your bags already checked you will be donating them to security .

    Must Visit: Kensington Market, for its greengrocers, cheese merchants, fishmongers, butchers and the ever busy & happening atmosphere all around!

    When flying BA/AA from LHR to the US, pick up your luggage then head upstairs to the AA counters near the US passport entrance. Don't follow the connections signs. Wish someone told me.

    The American Airlines Admirals Club is a more immediate right after security than you might think. The entrance is almost IN security.

    If you're American going INTO the US, you'll encounter border agents with great attitudes. Coming back in, however, if you're American, prepare to get some cold shoulders. Sorry, it a fact...

    Get as much done at the Kiosk including baggage tags. Make sure when booking your passport name is exact on all documents. Save u lots of time.

    Plenty of food and shops once through security. Security line ups are hit or miss but the bag drop off and check in can sometimes be crazy so definitely leave early.

    Nexus card holders will breeze through security, both incoming and departing. Be sure to have it out and handy for the CBP agent at the end, else they'll get annoyed and may see it as a violation.

    Don't bother waiting in front of the doors for your party. Grab a seat, hook up to some free wifi and text your group where you are sitting. It can take up to 45 mins to clear customs and get bags.

    Extremely clean airport with free wifi. Looking for a VIP lounge? I would suggest Googling the lounge you're looking for on your phone. Most staff are unaware of which lounge is which. 👌
  • Ricarda Christina H.
    Awesome: At the gate each passenger can use an iPad and order food from it. But food consumption is not obligatory.

    Booster juice is really good in t1. And reasonable. Good for filling the stomach without having to get a meal, just add protein.

    The TTC ( Toronto's public transit ) 192 Bus is a fast and cheap way to get to the subway and on to anywhere in Toronto! Look for it. It's not well signed.

    Customs was v.Unusual process. 3 steps to get thru customs seems simple, but it was a mess & unorganized! US & CAN: make sure u scan passport in machine ahead of time or wait 2hrs in non-citizen line

    If flying nationally check to see if the lower level security check point is open, much less of a line up than the main checkpoint...got through in 5 minutes

    There's a new 'staging' area that you have to wait in before you can go through customs. Suggest not arriving too early for your flight.

    Long flight? Peanuts are okay, but bringing a filling, healthy snack like almonds or fruit will keep you tied over until your destination. For more travel tips and fun, follow @DoubleTree on Twitter!

    Never, ever connect internationally through Pearson. Double immigration and customs for the US-bound; plan to add two plus hours. (The inter-terminal baggage protocol alone boggles the mind.)

    At Q4, Walk in airport, look for ladies washroom and 3 doors to the right there's an unmarked, recessed door. Home cooked meals as well as fries and smaller things, cheap prices!
