It depends on when you are coming. The seasons play a big part in deciding what to do and where to go.

What time of year were you thinking of coming here?

And yes, if you can afford the time, definately plan to go and see Montreal!

I totally agree with Greg. Toronto is one of the big Canadian cities (the biggest right now if I'm not mistaken), so definitely a must see. And if you can stop by Montreal for sure. Summer is best. We get decent weather then, and we have tons of festivals in Montreal, so you can take advantage of that!

I would think that 2 weeks would be enough time to see both Toronto and Montreal. End of September is a good time to come. The stiffling heat of summer has past, and it hasn't gotten brutally cold yet.

Between Toronto and Montreal you can either fly, take Via rail or grab a bus. Bus is probably cheapest, though sometimes there are some REALLY good flight deals. Flying, whilest it should seem to be quicker than the bus or train, can take just as long when you consider that the train goes from downtown to downtown and flying requires you to travel out to the burbs to catch a plane and into the city on arrival. For airlines, check Air Canada, Jetsgo and Westjet.

As for things to see in Toronto, check out Toronto.COM for ideas, and you can see what festivals and the like are on. Niagara Falls is very close by along with Ontario's wine country. A tour of a winery is very nice. I can recommend the Jackson-Triggs winery tour. Niagara Falls has 2 casinos, as well, if you like that. You might want to try and head up North for a bit. Check out Ontario's cottage country - Muskoka. Midland has a nice settler village to see.
