Here at Traveline Out & About we like to share our travels with our followers. We recently visited Toronto, ON and discovered what a great city it is for gay Americans to visit. We are welcomed in this city like nowhere else! From the bellhop at the hotel, to the doorman at the bar. Everyone is open and accepting of the gay lifestyle. Here are some helpful tips on what you can expect.
Walking up and down Church Street, Toronto’s gay hub of activity, you will notice several boutique shops and adult themed stores. Feel free to pop in and browse for whatever tickles your fancy.
Boutique Bar, serving delectable martinis and spirits with a double deck hanging over Church Street, provides some fabulous boy watching and a great social environment. Across the street is Flash, a dance/ strip club by night and a bingo hall by day. Get your Bingo cards with a drink purchase and have a chance to win $300 and a spa gift certificate. This member’s only club is open to the general public. You can enjoy a relaxing lunch at John’s Bar and Grill or across the street at O’Gradys, both having suitable patios for some delectable cruising.
Remington’s, located outside of the village, is Toronto’s only legal all nude male strip club. Both men and women can be tantalized by an assortment of men displaying their goods. Want to show one of the performers your appreciation? Trade in a Canadian ten dollar bill for US single dollar bills in return for easier tipping (amount varies on the current exchange rate).
Toronto also has some amazing theaters for live performances. Stop by the Ed Mirvish Theatre, formerly the Canon Theatre, to see what shows are playing during your visit.
Looking for an escape from the city? Hop on the Hanlan’s Ferry for a quick float over to Hanlan’s Point. This beautiful part of Toronto’s Island is the home of the only clothing optional beach on the east side of Canada. Both men and women gather to soak in the sun while in the buff. The unofficial gay section of the beach can naturally be found at the furthest point of the beach. Snack stands and washrooms are located near the beach for the visitor’s convenience.
Best of all, everything is within walking distance from several hotels located near Church Street. Park the car and walk to your desired destinations. Want to travel outside of the village? Public transportation is abundant with taxis, electric street cars, busses, and an efficient subway system.
