one day in toronto itinerary

Having lived in Toronto for 20 years, we have explored every corner of the fourth largest city in North America. While traveling full-time, we had the opportunity to pop in and visit Toronto as tourists, getting a different point of view. While this beautiful city on the shores of Lake Ontario can’t be fully explored in 24 hours, we understand that a lot of people only have one day in Toronto.
So, we’ve created the perfect one day in Toronto itinerary to help you see the best of the city while having a few adventures to make the most of your short stay.

1 Day in Toronto Itinerary

Getting around Toronto for this itinerary is easy with the TTC (Toronto Transit Commission), the city’s public transit. You will either walk or hop on the streetcar or subway. If you really want to see a lot, Ubers are readily available. Make sure to get a PRESTO Card so you can easily use public transport during your one-day stay in Toronto. It is good for the Subway, Streetcars, and Buses. We have a map at the bottom of this one-day Toronto Itinerary that you can download and follow along with.


This itinerary is going to take you to the top Toronto attractions that tourists will want to see. Since it is only a one day itinerary for people coming into Toronto for a day trip or for people who have a short time, we’re sticking to the downtown core and most popular attractions. If this is your first visit to Toronto, you are going to want to see all of these places before you branch out.
