Things to do in Toronto

Im not sure if this belongs in this forum, but I know a lot of the posters in here are from the GT area, so here goes:

Ill be taking a short post Christmas trip to Toronto for three days, and Im staying right by the University of Toronto on Yonge St. The only thing I have definitively planned for the trip is a visit to the Hall of Fame, but other than that its up in the air. Its my first time to Toronto or Canada, so Im looking for suggestions of what to do, where to eat, things I should make sure to check out, etc.

Im not looking for the "postcard" places to go and eat that I could get from a travel guide, I want local things that local people would be sure to do if they were only there three days. Thanks guys.

Go for a skate outside of city hall, it looks beatiful at night around there.

Go to George's Deli & BBQ (792 Bathurst St., right near Bathurst subway station) and get a cheeseburger with fries and gravy.

If you can skate/have skate, then this is a great place to go. Visit the Royal Ontario Museum, dine on top of the CN Tower

Royal Ontario Museum is nice, as is the obvious call of the HHOF. There is lots of hockey going on between the Leafs, Marlies, as well as plenty of OHL and Jr. A/B hockey going on. Toronto is a very modern, metropolitan city and just walking around is a nice little time killer. There are loads of good restaurants downtown as well, which is a big plus for me.

There is no Major Junior in Toronto, so unless you rent a car and make the 1/2 hour drive to Mississauga/Brampton, you are out of luck.
