My Favourite Places: Andrew Weir of Destination Toronto Weighs In

October 28, 2020 Admin

In another of our “My Favourite Places” features, we chat with Andrew Weir, the Executive Vice President of Destination Toronto (formerly Tourism Toronto).

Favourite world city

Madrid. The ideal combination of urban sophistication, architecture, food, late-night dining, all capped off with chocolate and churros from San Gines.

Favourite beach

Manhattan Beach in L.A. for its pier into the wide open Pacific and fish tacos just above on Highland Avenue.

Favourite nature spot

I wouldn’t have thought one could have a favourite tree, but I do. The giant rubber tree known as El Gran Gomero, in the Recoleta district of Buenos Aires, is extraordinary.

Favourite place in Canada other than home

Driving through the Atlantic provinces, from city to town to coastal cliffs, with fresh lobster and some live fiddle music.

Favourite local spot

On the colourful and richly diverse part of Wilson Avenue west of Dufferin Street in North Toronto, Emma at Cocoon Coffee serves a perfect cup with whatever she baked fresh that hour.
