Province of Ontario Things to Do

  • CN Tower

    4 out of 5 stars

    Toronto Things to Do

    The tower is the highest building in Toronto, and it has all the common attractions in this kind of structures - high speed elevators, rotating restaurant, sightseeing points but also a wine cellar, 3D movies and more. Sorry we had no time to go up!

  • Maid of the Mist

    Niagara Falls Things to Do

    Dating back to 1846, the Maid of the Mist is without a doubt one of North America's oldest tourist attractions. Along with Journey Behind the Falls, it is part of what I dubbed the "Big Two" -- the two best ways to see the falls up close, but also the two best ways to end up frustrated in a long waiting line. So much has been said and written...

  • Parliament Hill

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Ottawa Things to Do

    Here on Ottawa's Paliament Hill there are various statues of prominent Canadian statesmen(plus a couple of English queens). The most interesting, to me at any rate, is Barbera Paterson's relatively recent monument entitled, "Women are Persons". This set of scupltures, depicting 5 women, was inauguarated on October 18th 2000 and commemorates what is...

  • Fathom Five National Marine Park

    Tobermory Things to Do

    We continued along the south shore of Cove, through the Otter Island Channel and east to Flowerpot Island. This 200 hectares island gets its name from two unusual rock formations on its eastern shore. This is the only Island where camping and hiking is permitted. We cruised right by the Flowerpot rock formations where we took lots of pictures....

  • 1000 Islands

    Kingston Things to Do

    We made a long approach to Kingston on the 100-km (62-mile) Loyalist Parkway, which starts near Trenton and takes a scenic route along the Lake Ontario coast via the isthmus of Prince Edward. It was a relaxing way to go, with speed limits varying between 60-80 kph for the most part and dropping down to 50 kph in the series of small communities...

  • London International Airshow

    London Things to Do

    Aircraft from around the world descend on London every June for a great airshow. You can walk around and inspect the planes, even get in them, and talk to the flight crews. I used to love going to this airshow.

  • Chinatown

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Toronto Things to Do

    The thing about whatever Chinatown you're visiting in the world, not one is the same from the other. The one in NYC, from what I can remember, seemed compacted into a single few blocks, while the one in London, from what I can remember, was a long single street with buildings looming over you on both sides of the street. Smells and vibes are...

  • Falls at Night

    Niagara Falls Things to Do

    Every night after sundown, both the American and Canadian Falls are illuminated by floodlights until midnight (10 p.m. from January to April). As evidenced by the fact that this has been going on since 1925 -- another example of the falls' long history of tourism -- the light show is well done and highlights the stream of water. Not only do the...

    Don't miss this ceremony that is held from late June to late August on Parliament Hill, no matter how the weather is. Get there early in order to have a good view as the ceremony gets underway at 10 am. The guards will march from their Cartier Sq. drill hall up Elgin st. to Parliament Hill.

  • Odette Sculpture Park

    Windsor Things to Do

    The Odette Sculpture Park is a series of art works winding along the Detroit River between the Ambassador Bridge and Church Street.. Self guided tour maps are located within the park identifying the sculptures and providing information on the sculptors. I have two travelogues, highlighting some of the sculptures in the Odette Sculpture Park.

  • Fort Henry

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Kingston Things to Do

    Fort Henry was originally built during the War of 1812, but the existing Fort bears no resemblance to the one today. It was reconstructed in 1832 - 1837. The British Army garrisoned Fort Henry until 1870 when Queen Victoria's troops were pulled out of Canada. Soon after, "A" Battery, School of Gunnery, followed by "B" Battery, took up residence in...

  • African Lion Safari

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Hamilton Things to Do

    After living in Ontario for over 20 years, I finally visited African Lion Safari. It was wonderful and worth the drive to get there. The bus toured close to wild animals. We had very close encounters while in the safety of the bus. For me, the bus ride highlight was having monkeys climbing onto the roof of the bus.

    London Things to Do

    One September weekend each year, many sites in London -- both private and public open their doors for residents to see. There is quite a range in the sites available from historic buildings to the top of sky scrapers to museums and parks. Some of the sites are not normally open to the public. in 2008, Doors Open London had 51 sites of which we...

    Toronto Things to Do

    I will always recall the Toronto Islands with enormous affection, if only for the most wonderful - and utterly unexpected - 'guided tour' that I was on the receiving end of! I had a spare afternoon in Toronto, and as it was a beautiful, if crisp, spring day, I decided that I would take the ferry out to Centre Island and go for a walk. As I was...

  • Behind the Falls

    4 out of 5 stars

    Niagara Falls Things to Do

    That's the way to walk closer to the falls. We didn't do it (it must be fun, but time was short and we had to choose), since the Maid of the Mist, took us even closer, with less sacrifices, and gave us the chance to see the lines going up and down by the water, seeming a strange ritual.

  • Byward Market

    Ottawa Things to Do

    In hidden away courtyards by Byward market are several lovely works of art. My first photo is of the Tin House (2003), which I find awesome. It is the facade of a house of tinsmith Honoré Foisy. He advertised by decorating the outside of his house. This work of art is made of original and fabricated parts of the house. It is a fun idea, putting...

  • Riverfront Parks

    Windsor Things to Do

    I am convinced that this town is dominated by the lake. Opposite the lake is Detroit, Michigan. A most relaxing way of spending the evening, would be simply relaxing by the still waters. I doubt I would ever be tired of doing that! The lake is about 2Km across. There are a few miles of walking paths along the river. Hans (Waalewiener) took all...

    Kingston Things to Do

    Bellevue House was once home to John A. Macdonald, Canada’s first Prime Minister. Its serene gardens, whimsical Italianate architecture, and beautiful interior are truly a sight to behold. It feels like stepping back in time, with its costumed interpreters dressed period costumes from the 1840’s. The site is kid-friendly, with colouring pages and...

    Victoria Park is 18 acres in downtown London. We walked through it a few times. As advertised, there are a lot of squirrels hanging about -- and the mandatory statues and war monuments. We saw the park being used as a place to hold a demonstration (on the anniversary of 9/11), as an open-house to encourage interest in the Canadian Military, and as...

    Toronto Things to Do

    You want a place to people watch in Toronto. Look now further then Yonge and Dundas Square located along Yonge St. in downtown Toronto. Eaton Centre is close by. The place is basically the "Times Square of Toronto" as my buddy Jon told me. You can see why once you set foot in the area. Billboards and advertisements are everywhere. Tourists,...

    The Garden of the Provinces and Territories is such a beautiful park, with two lovely fountains, one of which is called The Great Lakes Fountain (Emil G. van der Meulen, 1962). It symbolyzes the Great Lakes as it has a series of slabs from concrete. Children love to play in this fountain. The other fountain is in the form of a tree - representing...

  • Murney Tower Museum

    Kingston Things to Do

    Due to a a renewed threat of war with the United States in the early 1840's, it was decided to increase Kingston's defences and four stand alone redoubts (or Martello Towers) were built between 1846 and 1848. These Towers provided arcs of fire covering the entrance to Kingston harbour. In 1890, the towers were deemed obsolete and were left to...

    Casa Loma is a fabulous building, the former home of Sir Henry Pallatt. It was designed by the Architect E J Lennox, who also designed old city hall. It was built between 1911 and 1914. The total cost was approx $3.5 million and around 300 men worked on the construction! - it certainly is a sight to behold. There were 98 rooms in total, and there...

    At first i just looked at all this madness...not quite believing it. It felt like i was in the middle of some carnival/amusement park. It is overcommercialized, totally touristy, totally tacky and kitschy. You can just walk down the street and go through a million souvenir stores with Niagara Falls on any kind of clothing you can imagine (and some...

You will also find the Bruce Trail...

    London Things to Do

    During Open Houses, we toured Eldon House which is downtown less than two blocks from my son's condo. Eldon House is unusual as far as period museums as it was donated to the city of London (in 1959) complete with most of the furnishings that the family had accumulated over 100+ years. If I remember what our tour guide said, the family took their...

    The river splits in two, part of it falling in the American side of the border, and the other in Canadian side. Standing side by side, it is in the Canadian part that the views are most impressive, due to the shape of the falls, concentrating in a secluded area the biggest part of the water. Called Horseshoe Falls, it’s easy from the air to...

    We visited this museum one Saturday.

I had no idea that the natives built walled cities - always thought that was a technique that the Europeans only...

It's a pleasant stroll in the summer or an envigorating skate in the winter, or just another place to enjoy the fall folliage. The first set of locks are the Ottawa Locks, then...
