  • Harbourfront & Toronto Islands

    Toronto Favorites

    Toronto Island Park is a place to unwind. Spend more time here because there is so much to do aside from relaxation. Spend a day! Can you see the map of the Toronto Island Park? This is what I am telling you. It is so huge that you almost have no time to sit. This is if you really want to explore the whole of it. As soon as you disembark from the...

    Montreal Favorites

    This area of Montreal was known as the Golden Square Mile, for its remarkable concentration of wealth and power, mostly Anglophone. This hall, now part of McGill University, is representative. It was orignally built in 1907 as a private residence for Sir Mortimer Davis (1866-1928), Montreal born businessman, known as "The Tobacco King". (Davis in...

  • Gastown

    Vancouver Favorites

    Before a former riverboat captain named John Deighton came to town in 1867, Canadian mill workers had to hike ten miles through bear-infested forests to New Westminster if they wanted a drink. Deighton recognized their plight and told the men they could have as many drinks as they wanted from his barrel of whiskey if they helped him build a saloon....

  • General Falls Tips

    Niagara Falls Favorites

    We just returned from Niagara Falls Canada, had a wonderful time and learned a few things. It isn’t necessary to exchange your USA dollars for Canadian dollars as we didn’t find a single business that wouldn’t take USA dollars for par (1$ to 1$), but be warned you only receive your change in Canadian currency. This is not a problem except on the...

  • Walking around Quebec City

    Quebec Favorites

    Get up EARLY and walk around the city for some peaceful views, especially in summer when there are more tourists. I arrived in Quebec in the late afternoon and found the city overrun by school children. It was annoying to say the least so I went to bed early and rose early. I was out on the town by 7am and enjoyed my time so much! No shops are...

    Victoria Favorites

    A lot of people come to Victoria for the flower gardens, especially the Butchart Gardens (which are actually not in Victoria, but are in nearby Brentwood Bay). While it's true that there are certain seasons for certain flowers, Victoria experiences such mild winters, and since most trees in Victoria are evergreens, it actually stays green year...

  • Historical Halifax

    Halifax Favorites

    There are many universities in Halifax (e.g. Dalhousie University, University of King's College) and you can see students of many races along the streets of Halifax, making this a really cosmopolitan city. In fact, I noticed many Asian students in Halifax especially Chinese. The buildings of the universities look impressive and historical :)

    Winnipeg Favorites

    I was very pleased that I didn't have to go through all the hassle of exchanging money. In most places in Winnipeg they accept American money, and since Canadian and American money were basically equal in worth, they didn't even price differently.

    Banff Favorites

    I'm going in October and I'll just be turning 27. If it does turn out to be 'very young' we can go and buy a pipe and a pair of slippers and be old gits together lol. I do undstand where you're coming from though as the maturity difference between 18 and 25 is paramount but I'm hoping there'll be a nice mixture :)

    Jasper National Park Favorites

    Athabasca Falls and the Abandoned canyon. I can never get enough of waterfalls, and this place was special. I particularly liked the abandoned canyon with the gauged out potholes in the rock. Canyons are great places to go when the weather is not sunny as the lack of sunshine doesn't ruin your photo opportunity. The Maligne Canyon. It has several...

    I found Wasa bread in a small shop in Wolfe Island...definitely did not expect seeing it there. I didn't even think that bread was available outside of Scandinavia (maybe at an Ikea shop), to be honest, but it made me smile.

    Can't remember the name of the beach, about 15 minutes from our motel, but we took our dog, and just loved watching him in the water. He just kept going back out and kinda laid/floated. Lovely view of Confederation Bridge. A little snack bar was there, got some drinks, Odin laid in the grass to dry, and we just enjoyed relaxing, and Odin enjoyed...

    We walked down to West Pember Street near Coal Harbour for a good view of the harbour and marina. In the little park overlooking the seawalk there is a large piece of metal artwork "The Upside Down House". Well worth a look and a challenge to your photographic skills to obtain the perfect photo. This area is a nice part of town with views...

    Take a ride on the Maid Of the Mist! This tourist attraction has been around for years! This boat which takes you right up to the falls leaves every 30 minutes from either the Canadian side or the American side. They will give you a disposable blue raincoat,but it really does't help much at all! You will get wet no matter what....but this is all...

  • Quebec's Military Background

    Quebec Favorites

    It seems the famous “Plains of Abraham” were named after a farmer of that name who had farmed them some years before the British arrived. That happened on the morning of 13 September 1759 and their arrival that day surely must have put the Marquis right off his breakfast! I’ve asked, I’ve researched, but nowhere can I find a good reason why...

    Winnipeg Favorites

    Get outside the city and see the prairie. The fields stretch for as far as the eye can see. The best thing about Winnipeg is the time from May to September. The city is alive with events, the lakes are nearby and the snow is gone.

    Edmonton Favorites

    The best time to come to Edmonton, in my opinion, is the summer. There are lots of festivals and activities happening (read my tip on Festivals for more info). If it is sunny (as it usually is), Whyte Avenue is guaranteed to be filled with people, from the morning crowd to the night owl partiers, any day of the week. No shortage of patio eateries,...

    In 1988, Calgary put on a party and invited the world. For a couple of weeks in February1988, the winter Olympians competed and their victories were often celebrated at the Olympic Plaza .

    The best thing about Banff is the scenery. I have been all around the Americas and the only thing that comes close is maybe Santa Marta area in Colombia. The tip I would like to give skiers is to go between Easter and the end of May. Prices drop, the crowds go away and it snows a lot. For locals, April and May are favourite ski months....

    I found these 3 performers while walking on Ste-Catherine street. Picture 1 is the first musician I noticed. He was playing something looking like Spanish "castañuelas" (but not quite) and hitting them with the thingie that looks like a bike saddle, making a sound like horse shoes when a horse is walking. Picture 2 shows a guy dressed like...
