    Nestled in a quite green corner

    by

    My husband and I stayed here for two days and one night in September 2010. The service, facilities, amenities and the neighbourhood was absolutely great, but the lay out of building is complex. We continued to forget our way to the room and to the exit.

    Unique Quality: In my opinion, the beautiful surrounding with beautiful hiking tracks within the premises and the nearby King's Mill Park stand out. One could discover nature by meandering down the scenic Humber River in a kayak or canoe for a 2 hour guided tour of the Humber River valley.

    Premium King Suite:The Premium King Suite features magnificent Tudor style luxury with an inviting king bed. There is an all season fireplace in the comfortably elegant living room with hardwood floors and a hand woven rug. We relaxed in a stunning bathroom with a fabulous whirlpool tub for two.

MARKETS AND THEATER

by losham

Hello,

My husband and I will be in Toronto the end of April and thought you may be able to recommend small theaters that have performances that time. Theater meaning drama, comedy or musicals as opposed to concerts and dance.

Also is Kensington Market better than St. Lawerence Market? Should we stop by both of them and is Saturday really the best day to go?

We are staying by Union Station and will have a weekly card so anywhere within the subway system is good for us.

Thanks for your help.

For theatre have a look at the local listings mag "NOW". This is a weekly freebie which you can pick up all over the place in Toronto. The website also has up-to-date listings - www.nowtoronto.com/stage/listings/

Sorry can't help with the markets though.

Have a good trip!

Re: MARKETS AND THEATER

If you are near Union Station you are just west of the main theatre district which includes the Sony Centre, Royal Alexandra Theatre, Elgin & Wintergarden Theatre, etc.

You should head up to Yonge-Dundas Square (Dundas Subway station) and check out T.O. Tix there - they sell discounted theatre tickets.

I prefer the Kensington Market - it's in the Spadina Avenue, Dundas Street, Bathurst Street and College Street area and is really a neighbourhood market and is open every day. The St Lawrence Market went upscale years ago and other than the architecture of the buildings, does nothing for me.

Try Stratford Festival ( 2 hour drive west of Toronto) , Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-The-Lake , Soulpepper Theatre and "www.torontolivetheatre.com".
The theatre season starts in April and some places have limited performances at that time .

Torontolivetheatre.com shows listings for the smaller theaters such as the library theaters.

Many of these are not central but are easily reached by public transit (TTC) bus/subway, for example Fairview Theater (Don Mills/Sheppard Ave E.), is approx. 35-45 minutes from Union Station, and is located next to the subway and Fairview Mall.

Toronto Centre for the Arts (not small) is on the Yonge subway line and is showing Jersey Boys through April/May.

Re: MARKETS AND THEATER

July 2 thanks for the directions to the Fairview Theater. I had seen that MOONLIGHT AND MAGNOLIAS was playing at that time but didn't know if it was easy to get to that area. We like to see small production companies.
BTW JERSEY BOYS is a fantastic show -- not to be missed.

Thanks again for all your help.

Travel Tips for Toronto

Wind Power

by jamiesno

I have an interest in wind power and like to research its applications. The first tower I had ever seen was in Whitehourse, in the Yukon and then I discovered this one in Toronto. I find wind towers are an amazing symbol of a sustainable source of energy and living. You can see this tower from most hotels or high rise buildings in Toronto. For some details on the actual tower I pulled some text from another web site. I've sourced it and provided a web site link. Apparently its a popular spot to hang out in the summer time as well with the tourist.

Toronto is home to North America's first large scale wind turbine installed in an urban environment. Located at Exhibition Place near the shores of Lake Ontario, it rises 94 metres, or roughly 30 stories. Each of its three fibreglass blades measures 24 metres in length and rotate at about 11 metres per second or 27 revolutions per minute. In winds with speeds of 10 -12 knots per hour, the turbine produces 128 kilowatts of electricity. On average, the 750kw wind turbine will generate 1,400-megawatt hours of electricity per year, equivalent to the electricity needs of about 250 homes, and can displace about 380 tonnes of carbon dioxide.

Toronto Hydro Energy Services constructed and jointly owns the wind turbine at Exhibition Place with WindShare Cooperative, providing the initial analysis, design, implementation and project management for this groundbreaking project. The $1.8-million project involved several unique challenges including structural foundation, site assessment, urban municipal approvals, permits and interconnection to the electricity grid. The project is an excellent example of how communities can work together to meet their electricity needs and address global issues of air pollution and climate change.

by Jillworld

There were some beautiful gardens on our walk towards the Niagra Falls. They were so lovely - and since most people just seem to be interested in the falls, or the commercial extravaganza that the town offers, it was very quiet and secluded despite being smack in the middle of everything!

Big Ben in Toronto?

by grandmaR

Toronto has a lot of interesting architecture - I've been somewhat interested in the local building styles ever since I observed that in Philadelphia there were a lot of stone buildings, but in New England, with all those rocks dropped by retreating glaciers, stone buildings were rare.

In any case, I'm apt to take pictures of interesting buildings and then sometimes I can't identify them. Laura (hayward68) very kindly helped me ID the Old City Hall.

I could sort of see the New City Hall from my hotel room, and have a picture of it from there - don't know when I took this one. Built in 1899 in the Romanesque Revival style, the Old City Hall has a clock tower (which reminded me of the tower on Parliment in London), "Friends of Old City Hall" exhibit and a War Memorial and the criminal courts. Guards at the doors will check all bags and you'll have to walk through the metal detector. Across the street is the New City Hall, known as Nathan Phillips Square (built 1958-65).

City Hall Tour On-Line is a website about the Old City Hall.

"Under construction for more than a decade and costing more than $2.5 million, Toronto's third City Hall was officially opened on September 18, 1899, by the mayor of the day, John Shaw...

"Old City Hall was designed by Toronto architect Edward James Lennox whose later projects included Casa Loma and the King Edward Hotel. When Toronto's fourth City Hall opened across Bay Street in 1965, Old City Hall became a courthouse for the Ontario government."

"...Built mostly out of Credit Valley Stone, the castle-like plan includes corner pavilions, monumental round-arch openings, an interior courtyard and elaborate decoration inspired by the middle ages. Apparently, without consent, Lennox incorporated his name in the stonework; beginning on the west (Bay Street) wall and extending around the building, the letters E.J. LENNOX ARCHITECT A.D. 1898, are inscribed in the corbels under the roof. The cenotaph, unveiled outside the Queen Street entrance in 1925, was the site of many important civic celebrations, including those marking the end of the Second World War.

"The clock tower rises 103.6 metres (300 feet) and is positioned to look down Bay Street. The clock and bells were not installed until late 1900. The monumental bells first pealed on December 31, 1900. The largest bell, "Big Ben", weighs 5443 kg (11,648 lbs).

by chrissyalex

ONTARIO SCIENCE CENTRE This is really a great museum for childrem. It is educational,entertaining and there are interactive displays. A few that I remember ,were one that demonstrates static electricity,where you put your hand on this ball and your hair flies straight up in the air! Another where you ride a sationary bike to create electricity. I am sure there are even better ones now!

Bag Ladies

by Suet

It is VERY important to allow Old Bag Ladies to rest frequently on long trips around Toronto....they need sit downs at bus stops and MUST NOT be disturbed as they are liable to retaliate by taking unflattering photos of you....
