five stunning and fun reasons to visit allan gardens

When Torontonians learned I have a passion (*cough*obsession*cough*) for photography, they kept telling me I needed to go to Allan Gardens. Located in the Garden District on the east side of downtown, I took a slight detour over one Sunday afternoon to learn what the fuss was about. I have to say, Allan Gardens did not disappoint. Filled with greenery both local and tropical, the conservatory is bound to be a regular photoshoot hotspot for me. In fact, I'm already on the hunt for some models to play with. 

To sell you on taking a trip to one of Toronto's oldest parks, here are five stunning and fun reasons to visit Allan Gardens.
