Toronto Serves Up Summer Adventure



    TORONTO, June 8 /CNW/ - This summer, new travel packages make Toronto an
easy, exciting and affordable summer adventure. One-of-a-kind festivals, major
league sports, spectacular theatre, discovery exhibits and family fun start at
$83 USD/$92 CAD for a hotel package including breakfast and admission to a
special event.
    "With so many new events this summer there has never been a better time
to visit Toronto," said David Whitaker, President and CEO of Tourism Toronto.
    Toronto Summer Adventure packages combine accommodation at one of 32
participating hotels along with tickets to the critically acclaimed show We
Will Rock You or admission to special exhibits such as Dinosaurs Alive! at the
Toronto Zoo and the Ontario Science Centre's Titanic: The Artifact Exhibit.

tickets to a Toronto Blue Jays game. Plus a $25 gas card is included for
summer travelers staying at select hotels outside of the downtown core.
