We travel to Toronto for a day of sight seeing and visiting friends once or twice a year. This year our friends had booked a tour of the Redpath Sugar Museum ahead of time, and had also called 10 minutes prior to our arrival at...More
I called ahead to find out when the museum curator would be available today (Monday, Sept 11). I called at 1 and he said that he would be there until 3 and as an individual tour, we wouldn't need to book an appointment. We arrived...More
Can't go wrong moseying on over here and spending an hour checking it out. It's free, so you get what you pay for at the absolute minimum, but actually you get a lot more than that. It's a well-organized little museum full of history of...More
Small it may be, this is an excellent educational museum that traces the life of Redpath and his history of the sugar industry in Montreal and later here in Toronto. There are some interesting exhibits including a letter in reply to Redpaths proposal, written over...More
The last week or so the media has not been kind to the sugar industry as it alleges that they manipulated people in believing that sugar was good for your diet. This industry blamed other food and not sugar to cause weight problems, etc. The...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
