Nature has left an indelible mark on the Niagara region. The Canadian Falls, with a height of 54 metres (177ft), and the American Falls, at 56 metres (184ft) high, are true wonders of nature. Royalty, poets, and celebrities have all come to Niagara to experience its awe inspiring wonders...simply majestic!
There is actually a lot to see...
There is actually a lot to see and do in Toronto, depending on what you are interested in of course. There's the most common attractions such as the CN Tower (amazing views from the top), the AGO (Art Gallery of Ontario) and ROM (Royal Ontario Museum), for those looking for a little culture, and of course the Eaton Center for the shoppers in us all (although personally I don't recommend the Eaton Center, it's overhyped and overcrowded all the time, I say skip it). If shopping is your thing I would go down to Queen St. West which is the place to be, especially in the warmer months. Sit on a patio, have a pint and watch the people go by. It's lined with bars, pubs, restaurants and a million stores of all kinds: music, clothing, furniture and home decor, jewellery, shoes, books, and so on and so forth. For the those with a little more money to burn there's Yorkville. Great bars and restaurants and all the designer shops you could ever dream of.
Moose in the city.
The summer of 2000 brought many moose in the city. Needless to say, I was one of those visitors who loved them, and those moose always bring back sweet memories of this wonderful city.
Hope some of them will still be there next time I visit.
Thanks for all the moose, Toronto!

The Canadian National Exhibition, or in short "The Ex", is a major event held once a year at the end of August. It is one of the largest annual Fairs in North America. When you are in the city that time of the year it might be fun to pay it a visit. The fair is held annually for the 18 days prior to and including Labour Day. Hahaha, I don't know even where to begin to describe the EX, it has so many different things to see and do. There are stands about farming, animals, country exhibitions, kitchen appliances, garden show, a huge food court.... go there! yummie! See my restaurant tips :-))).... music, dance, firework show, and a big fair with roller coaster, and anything else you can think of.
The admission in 2003 is $10.00, Parking will be $15 and $17.
The Canadian National Exhibition is located near the heart of downtown Toronto on the shore of Lake Ontario. Take the Toronto bound Queen Elizabeth Way or Lakeshore Boulevard and follow the signs to the CNE/Exhibition Place.
