What to pack for a weekend getaway (and where to stay in Toronto)

Summer‘s the best season of the year, for oh so many reasons I couldn’t list them all. Choosing to fixate on one: summer getaways! 
I don’t want to hear that you prefer winter getaways – because one: that’s a big fat no for me, and two: winter is too cold to go anywhere except from your bed to your couch.
