Toronto is one of the biggest cities in Canada, so you’ll likely visit it at some point. And if you’re visiting North York, you should do your homework. If you lose a crown chewing into butter tarts, you’ll need to find a dentist. You could be desperate for a hospital/toilet at any moment too.
Let’s look at what to do when you get sick while traveling in North York. We’ll cover a couple of different scenarios, so you’ll be prepared for anything. Make sure you store these tips on your phone in case they slip your mind.
1. Rush To The Emergency Room
Head to the North York General Hospital if you need an emergency room. It’s not hard to reach because it’s beside the Ontario 401 Express. Drivers will take you to the nearest doctor if you’re outside the city center.
Feel free to walk around Havenbrook Park once you leave. I know Canada is freezing cold in winter, but it’s a great place to picnic in summer. Don’t forget to visit the tennis club if you want to become the next Milos Raonic.
2. Visiting A Public Bathroom
Japan might be home to the world’s greatest sushi, but North York is where you’ll find the best sushi pizza. It’s unlikely you’ll get food poisoning in Canada, but don’t worry if you’re desperate for the toilet.
Public bathrooms are within walking distance of each other, but you will need to locate them on Google. It’s worth checking in supermarkets too. If you want to risk trying the Toronto delicacy, Sushi Moto is a good place to start.
3. Call a Good Local Dentist
Do you know what to do when you get sick while traveling in North York or if your tooth is aching? Luckily, it’s easy to find a dentist that will work wonders on your teeth. Canadians have the seventh-best gnashers on the planet.
North York Smile Centre should be your first port of call. Toronto is home to excellent food, so your teeth must be operational. You don’t want to spend the rest of your holiday drinking soup and fruit shakes through a straw.
4. Relax At A Nice Health Spa
If you spend too much time drinking in Toronto’s crazy bars, you’ll need to unwind the following day. Visit the Float Stress Relief + Wellness Centre to eliminate stress. Floatation tanks are like yoga classes on steroids.
Your brain will reach states of consciousness you didn’t even know existed. There are a few swimming pools close by if you want to swim afterward, but you’ll enjoy the Royal Ontario Museum or CN Tower more.
5. Cannabis Is Legal In Canada
Canada legalized cannabis in 2018, so it’s perfect for anyone who usually smokes medical marijuana. If your arthritis flares up, you’ll find a dispensary in minutes. Speak to a professional if you’re an inexperienced smoker.
Someone can tell you which strain to smoke + how much to put inside the joint, which will ensure you don’t have a nasty trip. Tourists like to explore the markets and museums while high, but don’t spend all your money on souvenirs.
Everything Is Going To Be Fine
A large percentage of people reach the end of their holiday without a cough or bruise, so I’m sure everything will be fine. Don’t forget about the tourist locations we’ve touched on today.
