The winters in TO are long and cold, but many Torontonians take advantage of the weather by doing winter activities such as skating. It's a lot of fun and great it's excercise. Nathan Phillip's Square (across from City Hall, 100 Queen Street West) has a great ice rink open all winter long. It's free, and skate rental is available.
Enjoy the winter in TO!
Go to any local bar and see a hockey game! Toronto is crazy about their hometown team, and hockey in general.
The NHL season begins in October and ends in June. During the play-offs (usually beginning in early May), the pubs are filled with cheering, beer-drinking and devoted fans.
So if you're in town, see a game and join the team spirit! After all, hockey is a Canadian sport!
NOTE: Unfortunetly, there is no NHL this year, but we're patiently waiting for the next season to begin.
My favorite BIT OF SPORTS TRIVIA..maybe a good bar bet. LACROSSE is the national sport of Canada;-) , but hockey is trully a way of life and the Toronto mapleleafs are an Institucion Canadienne. The Hockey Hall of Fame is located at 30 Yonge St. near Union Station. Toronto M5E 1X8 phn: (416) 360-7765 e-mail: email@example.com
Of course hockey is a huge sport in Canada, with the Hockey Hall of Fame be in Toronto. Which really doesn't make sense to me since hockey was invented in the US, but don't tell a Canadian this or they want to fight! *LOL* Needless to say, the wild and drunk hockey fans are fun to be around during the playoffs....
We just call it hockey here, not ice-hockey. If someone says hockey we assume the kind played on ice. It's called road hockey if played on the road.
