Vacationing in Toronto during February!

So... once every few years, I'll come across someone who decided to fly from a warm climate to here in the middle of February. It boggles my mind a bit. To me, it's like visiting some tropical place during monsoon season.

Does anyone know someone that enjoyed such a trip?

If you live in a tropical climate it is unique to visit us in February.

I don't get what the surprise is. We live this day-to-day, they have the beach waiting for them so its a short stint.

I am flying into Toronto for a week at the end of March from Trinidad & Tobago. Yes I am leaving a place with 33C weather for much lower temps in TO - but I have that time off work anyway, so thought let me make a quick visit to see some friends and family.

I just had a vacation in Northern Alberta. I was a little nervous that i was going to regret a cold-vacation. However, it was amazing adventure. Holy crap is northern alberta beautiful - snowbarding, ice caves, stopping my suv along the columbia ice fields and just taking it all in. It was just as fun as going somewhere hot, but even more adventurous - and unlike anything i've done before.

Why anyone would visit Toronto as a "vacation", period, that's beyond me. It's a city like every other city...

When I lived in a small town, TO was my favourite place to visit. I used to get all teary eyed when the skyline started to appear.

when you live in a place like northern alberta you see that crap ^^^ all the time. coming somewhere with buildings, culture, nightlife, restaurants etc is new and fun

but i would say anyone who wants to come here during the winter from somewhere warm is a 110% certified maniac and might kill you in your sleep

I agree with this. For 2 years running, our spring vacation destination is TO.

While it's further away than Calgary or Winnipeg, I'm not a huge fan of those cities...and Sask "cities" don't have as much to offer.

Dunno, maybe it's the Ontario boy in me, but Toronto's a pretty fun spot, compared to the humdrum of this tiny town.

It's low season as well in a few places. I would totally go to Paris or London now if I had the time. The flight sales are great.
What flight sales? I was thinking of hitting Germany first week of May and i can't find anything there (or anywhere else in Europe) for less than a grand. Not terrible, but kinda overkill for a week vacation.

My ex and i visited Boston that Christmas with the crazyass snowstorm; hardly anything was open and we got stranded, but we had a great time. Not every vacation has to be about sitting on the beach - exploring somewhere new is often fun regardless of the weather. If you depend on the weather for a good time you're more likely to get disappointed.

one of my best friends tends to come here in the winter/late fall. she's from england though, so it's not like she's getting a change of scenery. maybe a bit more snow and cold? but it's cheaper then and she loves toronto and our halloween/christmas is more fun for her.
