    CN Tower in Toronto

    October 8, 2017 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    As we need a transfer to the airport tomorrow morning and so will miss the CN Tower tour we decided to go this evening straight after getting back from the Niagara Falls.

    Defining the Toronto skyline at 553.33m (1,815ft5in), the CN Tower is Canada’s most recognizable and celebrated icon. The CN Tower is an internationally renowned architectural triumph, an engineering Wonder of the Modern World, world-class entertainment and dining destination and a must see for anyone visiting Toronto. Each year, over 1.5 million people visit Canada’s National Tower to take in the breathtaking views and enjoy all the CN Tower has to offer.

    After 40 months of construction, the CN Tower was opened to the public on June 26, 1976 and it was well on its way to becoming the country’s most celebrated landmark. It is the centre of telecommunications for Toronto serving over 16 Canadian television and FM radio stations, the workplace of over 500 people throughout the year, and an internationally renowned tourism destination.

    Niagara on the lake

    October 8, 2017 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    On our way back to Toronto we dropped into the town of Niagara on the lake, a funny name for a place which is not actually anywhere near a lake!

    The town is very similar to what we saw in New England with its leafy street but was very busy as it's a popular place with the locals on a Sunday afternoon.Read more

    On the way to Toronto we dropped into Ottawa to see the parliament building, unfortunately it was rather wet so we spent most of our time in the covered market eating and drinking.

    Ottawa is Canada’s capital, in the east of southern Ontario, near the city of Montréal and the U.S. border. Sitting on the Ottawa River, it has at its centre Parliament Hill.Read more

    Quebec City

    October 6, 2017 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Today we visited Québec city or as our guide informed us it should be pronounced 'Kuébec'. A lovely city which is sited on two levels where the old city is linked to the new via a funicula railway.

    Québec City sits on the Saint Lawrence River in Canada's mostly French-speaking Québec province. Dating to 1608, it has a fortified colonial core, Vieux-Québec and Place Royale, with stone buildings and narrow streets. This area is the site of the towering Château Frontenac Hotel and imposing Citadelle of Québec. The Petit Champlain district’s cobblestone streets are lined with bistros and boutiques.
