    I have loved Canada ever since my trip. I have noticed that people are very generous and cheerful and the landscapesare magnificent. I have been impressed by the animals because they are amazing but not shy. I have been to lot of countries and I think this is my favorite. Perfect for a couple.

    A great landmark of the city which can be seen from various areas of the city. Not the cheapest attraction but something you must see when visiting Toronto

    Excellent produce market in old Toronto. Great selection of meats, fish cheese and a really nice ambiance. Home also of the famous bacon sandwich and it doesn't disappoint. Opens at nine in the morning.
    This is a good market but having recently been to Valencia market it pales.

    I went mid April so very little open but the walks and views are worth the ferry over. Ferry price is for a return and lovely to see the vastness of the lake from the other side of Centre island. Numerous viewing points of the Toronto skyline.

    Book a tour to see how Canadian Parliament operates. Currently being held in West Block as they complete major renovations on Centre Block, Guide was informative. The newly created structure was beautiful and so many aspects to take in. For free, this tour was appreciated by all of my family. A win!

    Back here at ROM on Tue, Dec 19, for another 3rd Tuesday Night Free event (4:30PM-8:30PM). We arrived before 5PM, Queen's Park museum entrance was locked (with a note to use main entrance) so had to go around the block to Bloor St W to get in. Futalognkosaurus area of the main lobby was quite busy. Apparently, we weren't the only ones who planned a free night at the museum. We headed straight to the elevators to get to level 3 where we had a quick look at the European period rooms and current life jacket art installation. Got a little lost when we couldn't locate some Asia exhibits we've seen last time. Encountered some closed off galleries so went back to the elevator lobby. Son volunteered to grab a map guide before we continued on. We then took a peek at Byzantium, Rome and Egypt galleries then segued to gender-neutral washrooms with multiple private stalls equipped with touchless toilet, faucet and hand dryer, still on level 3. From here, we found our way to the Rotunda where we posed for photos with the lovely mosaic dome as background. We headed to the newest permanent gallery on level 2, unveiled in Dec 2021, Dawn of Life, where we saw Fractofusus and a massive Dunkleosteus fish bronze cast. At the end of this gallery is a set of doors that open directly to where Gordo the Barosaurus is located. Of course, a visit to the Age of Dinosaurs gallery wouldn't be complete without a brief stop at the T-Rex. However, it got crowded here pretty fast so we left after a couple of obligatory photos. We only stayed an hour inside the museum so admittedly didn't see a lot. We plan to visit ROM again to explore those permanent galleries we haven't seen in years.

    Amazing food, service and atmosphere. Loved every moment at Casa Loma. I highly recommend having dinner at Casa Loma, as prices were fair with the portions and taste of the food. Top shelve all the way around

    This is a superb complex in old Toronto. Lots of bars,cafes ,shops and art galleries. A great place to wander around and visit the numerous bars, especially the gin distillery.

    Who knew? Comprehensive, thought provoking and very much "tell it like it was". Fascinating collections. Particularly liked the historical aspect of the museums offerings....tracing conflict from the earliest days...skirmishes amongst first nations peoples, to contact with European explorers and eventually settlers. And then of course Canada's participation in conflicts over the years...English vs French (the battles of these two great colonial empires), Canadian (comprising English, French and indigenous) with our big neighbour to the south. And then Canadian participation as the loyal British dominion in WW1 and WW2. A lot more history here than most Canadians realize. And if you are a military machinery fan, lots of tanks and armaments to gaze at. You really need 3 -4 hours to do the museum proud..or plan to come back another day. Underground parking ($13..pretty reasonable). The tours I had hoped for not available (staffing shortages) so check first by phone.

    Visited 26/05/2023.

    Fabulous conservatory, filled with lots of butterflies, and lots of information about them. Really pretty to see them flying around. Nice if they land on you, I just wish people would stop trying to touch them (as it can kill them).

    We visited this place but did not end up going to the top. An awesome sight, as the views can be spectacular on a clear day.

    This is definitely a must when visiting Niagara Falls. You enter at the visitors center on the Canadian side. You get a up close and personal view of the falls and a little spray for the falls. Poncho provided.

    Free on Wednesday Nights.

    This is a great gallery from ancient art to modern art.
    There are not just painting/pictures there are installations where you can take Instagram pictures with.

    Also there are some VERY famous artists housed in here. If you go, can you spot them?

    Wednesday night was really busy and mostly filled with students which was great to see.

    There is a trans art installation which is great to view from anyone art of the LBGTQIA+ community.

    Gift shop at the end was big and has some great items for sale.

    This is a Great Canadian Landmark. There are many higher waterfalls to be sure. It is the volume of water that makes this so spectacular.
