    hello guys 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.

    Okay let's face it. They have ipads for you to use While you're waiting for your flights. Some agents and staffs are pretty grumpy almost 24/7. I was at the airport in the morning and at night.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Thought was a great airport until today. Sent to Aisle 15 to wait a long time to even be let into customs. Don't arrive too early for your flight to US or you will wait a long time. Eat before arrival

    Double check the size of your carry on luggage. I just had to pay $100 to check in a second bag since it happened to be 2cm wider than they allow on board. But at least free wi-fi to vent about it ;)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    When flying United as a Canadian, be sure you use the automated terminals in front of the desks to ensure skipping that 45 minute lineup. At least two hours before your flight, if crossing the border.

    There aren't many food selections in the Delta terminal (B). Be sure not to arrive hungry! Also, places to hang out are limited which kind of stinks for those with long layovers. Safe travels!

    Terminal 3 is the worse. Unfortunately they "threw" all the US airlines there. The security on Terminal 3 also makes you take your shoes off, even if you are part of Nexus/TSA Pre-Terminal 1 doesn't.
