    When in Toronto, a visit to the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) is well worth the time and the price of admission. This is an impressive art museum, where a minimum of two hours should be set aside to fully appreciate it.

    Badged as the largest Chinatown in North America it extends along two main routes. As other Chinatowns it is a collection of mainly food stores and restaurants. Note really anything exciting compared to other Chinatowns that I have visited other than larger. Ok but nothing to rave about and Kensington Market which is nearby is a better use of time

    Lovely tree lined park in front of legislative building. Lots of statues & war memorials including one to Operation yellow ribbon after 9/11 and the recent Afghan conflict. Worth a visit

    The design of this college is really quite unique. It appears to be a large box supported by pencils - very unique. You can wander inside and check out the interior design but it is a working art school so be prepared to mingle with the tattooed and coloured hair sported by quite a few of the students. Worth checking out if you are in the area.

    This was a lovely little museum, and my experience was greatly enriched by the personalised tour guide. The history over the years is amazing. Unfortunately there wasn’t much furniture at the time I visited, but it is a nice place to spend about an hour or so.

    If you're moving between Downtown and Chinatown/Kensington Market, try to route your walk through this smart little park. The park itself is well maintained and a nice green spot in the heart of the city with plenty of people relaxing in the grass and kids enjoying the play facilities. It is however, greatly enhanced by the neighbouring Ontario College of Arts and Design building, which has a highly unusual annex called the Sharp Centre which stands on tall stilts and dominates one end of the park. Also of note is a fantastic Henry Moore sculpture (Two Large Forms) at the West side of the park.

    This church is not big but it gets highlighted in the urban landscape. Inside you dont have many statues but you Will see a lot of vitrals on the side walls. The view is amazing, the main hallway has a red carpet till the altar. Beautiful church, the pipe organ is quite big. Visit here is a good option.

    Native Canadian art is certainly something o e would need to delve into in order to gain an understanding. While the galeries in Yorkville seem to specialize in high-priced canvas painting, the Bay of Spirits has prints, watercolours and originals. And, of course, soapstone carvings. The owners are very accomodating and friendly. It goes without saying that they are not pushy at all. I had a great time there and I am happy with what I chose.

    This is my second visit to the gallery and I am as impressed this time as I was the first visit. The paintings by Sylvia Tait are stunning-brilliant blues and their complementaries in blocky compositions. Really wonderful.

    I viewed the relaxed performance of Bug, a deeply personal and current story told by Yolanda Bonnell. The space was very conducive to her presence while allowing the audience to connect with each other across the surrounded stage, and I truly felt comfortable even while being drawn into such a wrenching tale.

    A great thing about TPM: they are aiming to make 50% of their productions in 2021 relaxed! This will open up the space to so many more audiences who otherwise are excluded from these kinds of artistic events. You’re encouraged to spend an evening here and show your support!

    Bellevue Square Park is located very close to the area of Kensington market. It is small but it is a good place to chill for a few minutes there. Lots of restaurants and takeaways are near the square.

    We went on a weekday and the doors were locked but the outdoors was very nice and telling of the Jewish community of the area and era.
