Hola! Welcome to another post on my blog! Today I am showcasing my trip to the Distillery District in Toronto. We started off the day by having an amazing dessert at the stunning El Catrin Restaurant. Afterwards we roamed the Distillery District and stopped by some shops in including the SOMA chocolate shop and a lovely clothing shop called Cop Copine (which had one of the friendliest owners). We ended the day with a little summer tradition of spending time at a local beach.
A little history behind the now pedestrian only neighbourhood of the Distillery District is that it was founded in 1832, and at one point was the largest distillery in the world. The Official Plan currently designates the Distillery district as a mixed-use land parcel. The site is currently recognized as a national historic site and this is in part due to it comprising of 40 of North America's best preserved Industrial Victorian buildings. Today the area is comprised of boutiques, galleries, restaurants, cafes and residential dwellings in the form of condos. All this makes for one of the most vibrant spots in the city of Toronto during the weekends and holidays!

After we finished touring the Distillery district we headed East of the city to visit Woodbine beach, which is one of the more popular spots in Toronto during the summer. The day we visited certainly indicated the popularity of the beach as it was packed (we could barely find parking ) with people wading in the waters, playing volleyball and picking up sun tans.
