Suggestons for extended stay OUTSIE Toronto..

by jethanand

My wife and I will be vacationing in this area just going around.

We will be driving around in our car, but in the evenings, we would like a nice, quiet place to come back to. We prefer budget, clean places - any suggestions ?

Thank you very much in advance

Toronto is a very sprawling city...... perhaps somewhere like Oakville or Georgetown would be convenient, or even Kleinberg......

Jagdish,

My reply to Iankarim's question (in the Canada Forum) regarding visting the Toronto area may be of interest to you also. It details some ideas regarding Oakville old town which is about 1/2 hour west of central Toronto.

As mentioned by the poster above, Kleinburg is also a pleasant small town. Should you visit Kleinburg, the McMichael Collection Art Gallery is a highlight of the area.

Travel Tips for Toronto

The Trees and Colours of Toronto in Autumn

by CdnJane

If all you see is downtown Toronto you will miss one of the most wonderful things about Toronto and that is how much greenery there is throughout the city. From my balcony I look across a residential area that provides me with a continually changing vista. This area, Yonge & Sheppard in the North York region, grew from being a coach stop started in the early 1800s. on the way up Yonge Street which stretches north as the longest street in Canada, if not the world.
Anyway, I digress... this is the view I am seeing now, mid-October, 2004, as the trees change their colour. I fear that the wind today may blow many leaves off the trees before they too change their colours.

Beer-

by Seabiscuit

Oh, CRIPES! I forgot, I have to say something here. Toronto is a neat-O place, but, I really didn't have much of a chance to go and do anything. The CN tower was a toot, and I got kind of 'woozy' looking down. I'll fill this in later. Well, I don't know. I recall it was colder n' hell, and my 'rental car story' will arrive soon. I'm picking up the pieces. I promise to post it soon... really!

Toronto Tip

Toronto. The most 'american looking' city of the east side of Canada,because of its big buildings, mainly in the citycenter.
You breathe a really cosmopolitan atmosphere, where you find all kind of human races living together!

Casa Loma

by kris-t

Casa Loma, meaning "House on the Hill" is a Toronto tourist attraction. It was once the home of financier Sir Henry Mill Pellatt. It is on Austin Terrace, at the south end of Spadina Road on an escarpment above Davenport Road. Davenport runs along the bottom of the escarpment which was the shoreline of Lake Iroquois, the predecessor of Lake Ontario. Casa Loma has a superb view down the escarpment and Spadina Avenue into the heart of Toronto. Sir Henry commissioned Canadian architect E.J. Lennox to build Casa Loma. Construction began in 1911, starting with the massive stables a few hundred feet north of the main building. The stables were used as a construction site for the mansion, some of the machinery still remaining in the rooms under the stables. The house cost $3.5 million, and took a team of 300 workers three years to build from start to finish. Upon completion in 1914, at 98 rooms, it was the largest private residence in Canada. Notable amenities included an elevator, an oven large enough to cook a steer, two vertical passages for pipe organs, two secret passages in Sir Henry's ground-floor office and three bowling alleys. Many of the rooms were left unfinished, and today serve as a small museum for the Queen's Own Rifles, which Pellat supported.
