First of all, 48 hours is not a lot of time. AT ALL! However, this trip was an amazing experience and I can’t wait to go back to Toronto.
So…why did I spend only 48 hours in Toronto? Well, a friend of mine who is a local blogger, and influencer Caitlin Kruse was asked by Visit Annapolis to participate in a Parent Trap style swap and she brought me along to document the trip! Except, instead of switching children, Caitlin was asked to switch cities. This city-swap was cooked up as an effort to promote Air Canada’s new non-stop flight from BWI to Toronto and vice versa; and bonus- there are some really great Park & Fly deals at the BWI hotel! Let me tell you…I have always been so jealous of Europeans for their ability to hop on a train or a plane, or even drive a few hours and wind up in a new country, little did I know that an hour flight from Baltimore could land me in Canada!
So, Visit Annapolis found a blogger in Toronto to swap cities and she flew into Baltimore to spend 48hours in Annapolis, while we ran around Toronto!
Toronto is amazing. We weren’t even there at a good time of year, and it was still such a vibrant city. It was really weird because it felt like we hadn’t even left the US, since everything was so similar- except our phones didn’t work and I was constantly checking the exchange rate.
When we landed in Toronto, we hit the ground running (almost literally). That first day, we walked (I kid you not) 7 miles. Within the first 12 hours we got our monies worth out of the city!

Thank you to Visit Annapolis and Air Canada for making this trip possible! And thank you Caitlin for taking me with you! I can’t wait to go back, hopefully sometime soon!
Oh, and if you happen to fly Air Canada, make sure to check your seat-back pocket and snag a copy of the Air Canada magazine to see our trip in print!
