"Casa Loma - Castle or Shack?" Casa Loma Tip by Jele

Casa Loma, Toronto: 4 reviews and 3 photos

OK, so, I'm sure Casa Loma is described very nicely in most guide books, but I think its a big tourist trap. If you're European, don't bother going, I'm sure you see buildings more impressive to this on your way to work! But if you've never seen a "castle" before, go if you must!

Unique Suggestions: Take a walk in their beautiful gardens, they are truly one of a kind in Toronto.

Fun Alternatives: Try going to Osgoode Hall at Queen and University. Its an amazing building, much more opulent, FREE, and not as many tourists!

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
