Toronto is one of the world's most multi cultural diverse cities with a vibrant city life that welcomes one and all. While winters can be a real pain with temperatures below -30 C, the June to Sept time is very pleasant to visit.

Toronto Downtown

A compact downtown that can be easily covered walking has a range of things to do. It is highly recommended to take the Toronto City Pass that gives access to 5 attractions and can be used leisurely over 10 days. Ripley's aquarium, CN Tower,Rogers Stadium, Air Canada center are very close to each other and easily accessible from Union Station. Royal Ontario museum and Casa Loma can be visited together however the latter can be given a skip.

Eaton center is a decent shopping mall, St Lawrence is a lively food market, and Distillery District is a unique experience of Art n Beer!

Toronto has a great nightlife with a range of pubs, bars and discotheque and the city comes to life at night.

Niagara Falls

The great Niagara falls are just hour and a half drive from the city. You can book a guided tour that takes you through vineyards, Niagara village and the falls. I did a helicopter ride over the falls and was once in a lifetime experience.

The falls are definitely seen better from the Canadian side and the Hornblower boat ride up close with the falls leaves you drenched (litterally) with memories. Spend time roaming around the attractions, casinos, amusement games surrounding the falls. A day well spent!

We decided to take day trip to outskirts of Toronto towards the country side of Canada. An extremely sparsely populated country, the drive is through beautiful hills and green pastures. We spent some good time on the lively Wasaga Beach andPortsmouth town. Summer ensures family and youth are on the beach besides the lake have a good time.

Toronto provides a fulfilling experience for 4 days with lakes, sports, beach, nature, adventure and nightlife.
