Niagara Falls via train

by clmbsb

I plan to add a day onto my tennis trip next year to go back to Niagara Falls but don't want to do an organised trip. I have looked at the train times and you do have around 6 hours to see everything. Does anyone know how easy it will be to arrange a cab from the train station to the falls? Last time we walked from the bus station and i remember it took us around 45 minutes. Any ideas on the cost?

Thanks

Clare

The following site may help re. shuttles/taxis.

I would think, like most rail stations/bus terminals, that taxis would be close by looking for customers but I can't comment from personal experience as we always drive ourselves to NF. Sorry, I've no idea of taxi rates for the area.

Good luck.

Hi
Well it is at 4267 Bridge Street.
Seems to far to walk, esp as when you get top the River you have to head south to the Falls. Using mapquest you could get the distance. Note Amtrak apperas to be close to bus station.

Hi
Well it is at 4267 Bridge Street. Yje map shows it as three blocks from the whirlpool bridge. Go to map and figure out distance in miles.............

Travel Tips for Toronto

Original Stanley Cup

by Blatherwick

The original Stanley Cup is on display in a vault in the Hockey Hall of Fame. This is the trophy that started the dream of every Canadian kid to win an NHL championship.

The Stanley Cup, originally a decorative bowl purchased from a London silversmith worth 10 guineas ($48.67 USD), was donated in 1892 by Lord Stanley, Governor General of Canada, who had become enamoured with ice hockey. It was originally used as the trophy given out to the top amateur hockey team in Canada, decided by the acceptance of a challenge from another team by the Cup holders and trustees.

The Cup has been awarded every year since 1893, except for 1919 (when it was not awarded because of an outbreak of Spanish influenza) and 2005 (as a result of a labour dispute). The Montreal Canadiens have won the most Stanley Cups, 24. The Toronto Maple Leafs come in second with 13 Cup wins. The highest-ranking American team is the Detroit Red Wings with 10 wins. 1925 saw the Victoria Cougars as the last team outside the NHL to win the Stanley Cup. Following the WHL's demise after the following season, the Cup's Trustees granted the NHL exclusive control of the Stanley Cup.

A unique feature of the Stanley Cup is the fact that, with few exceptions in the past, the Stanley Cup is the only trophy in professional sports that has the name of every member of the winning team engraved upon it.

Go to the top of the CN Tower!...

by stueymac

Go to the top of the CN Tower! You think the skyscrapers are big - you ain't seen nothin yet, brother!

Also - visit the Skydome, it's worth the ten bucks to go round the staduim and you even get to go on the astroturf!!

The boat trip on Lake Ontario is brilliant too - you can see how big the CN Tower is compared to the skyscrapers...you really get a massive sense of perspective from hear that you cannot get on land. Sitting on the rooftop bar at Studebakers, sipping a Molson and listening to some band play some real hot tunes.

The evening was balmy, the bar busy and the atmosphere great. Been to the ballgame and rounded the evening off with a beer - really good night wa had by all.

Take a warm coat! We were...

by Polly25

Take a warm coat! We were there in October, going north from Ohio, and we heard it was reasonable to guess it would be 10 degrees cooler - make that more like 30 degree's cooler! We froze as it dropped to 38 degrees one afternoon while we were there. Oh, and don't forget if you hear the temperature and they say it's 12 outside - that's in Celcius! Add 32. Going up in the tower - our toddler screamed as she realized the glass floor was just that! Kind of scary!

BLACK CREEK PIONEER VILLAGE ...

by chrissyalex

BLACK CREEK PIONEER VILLAGE Is an open air museum that depicts life in the mid19th century. There are many buildings from this period to see here, including houses,a school,a mill, the townhall and a blacksmith. The people who work here are dressed in the costumes of the times and demonstrate how daily activites such as making candles,cooking and printing newspapers were done. The mill also makes flour which you can buy. There are also farm animals and the village has its own garden too!

Escalator Etiquette

by MissAntarctica2002

I don't know how universally accepted this is elsewhere, but in Toronto there is a definite protocol for using escalators that most people follow.

Most escalators are wide enough for two people to stand side by side, but don't do that. If you are with someone, go single file. The left side of the escalator is reserved for people who are in a hurry ( in Toronto that's a lot of folks) and want to walk on the escalator to get there faster. The right side is for people who want to stand and ride with the escalator.
