2016/08/22 Visiting Toronto
π 2016-08-22 01:01 in Canada, Trips
As part of linuxcon NA 2016, we went to Toronto, we flew to Toronto, and right after landing, we first went to Niagara Falls.

The rest of the time, we went to visit Toronto:





from our hotel, we had view on the boats that were going back and forth to Toronto Islands, a big park

Toronto is a very nice city to visit, lots of things to see. We did the CN tower first in the morning as the lines are known to get very long later on (hours):

Next, we went to Casa Loma, a very impressive residence built by a successful businessman 100 years ago:

From there, we took a clueless uber that barely managed to get us to the Royal Ontario Museum. Very varied collections, well worth the visit:

By then, it was raining pretty hard. We had a look at the nearby university, and found our way to the Ripley aquarium (on its own page):



The next morning, we started with the St Lawrence Market indoors:





We then found our way to the Ontario Science Museum, a bit far away, but in a very nice facility on multiple levels following a hill down:






After the museum, we went to Chinatown and walked around there. There were also many murals:









It was then time to slowly get back to downtown. We took the underground streets through PATH, a full city underground for when it's all cold and snowy above ground:





and we eventually took a train back to the airport (quicker than a cab)

Toronto was a nice city to visit. Seeing the major sights in 48H was a bit rushed, but I think we got most of it :)
