    • Kipling Subway station parking and Wilson Subway Station Parking

      Toronto 1 hours ago

      Hello< I was wondering about the safety of the TTC subway station parking lots, especially the ones stated above. My family had been through a bad experience with a car break in (smashed window) and was wondering about if there are many car break-ins/thefts at these parking lots? Also are there security guards/police officers around these parking lots? I know people break into cars when they see something and I will try not to keep any valuables in my car and no item in plain sight.

      Here are some links I've looked up

    • Accommodations

      Pelee Island Apr 11, 2014 at 10:36 AM

      My boyfriend and I are planning to stay on Pelee Island for a weekend in May. What type of accommodation would you suggest ... one of the inns/motels or a cottage (we aren't really B & B people). If you have any recommendations that would be ideal for a couple, I would appreciate hearing from you.

      Thank you!

    • Muslim Woman visiting Canada

      Windsor Mar 23, 2014 at 11:18 AM

      Hi! I'm a young Muslim woman from Dubai, UAE coming to Canada with my brother for approximately 15-20 days on vacation in June. I've never been to Canada before so I'm really excited but apprehensive at the same time because I wear the Islamic face-veil. (Although I've heard Canadians are nice people and are more open to other cultures) Windsor is one of our stops. Do you think I'll have a problem with wearing the veil in Windsor? I understand people might be curious and stare but I don't want to face any harassment. I plan to wear coloured ones to try and blend in a little.

      Thanks! :)

    • seeking recommendation for a family camping with 3 preschool boys

      by 5chevaliers Online Now Jan 24, 2014 at 8:09 PM

      We are considering car camping using tent with 5 and half, 2 and half and 8-month old this summer. We would like to stay at the same camp site but could consider moving camp site once in order to explore more area of the park. Anyone has recommendation for a camp ground(s) that would provide the best convenience for exploring the park? What is your favourite part of the park to visit, considering the age of our kids. Thanks!

    • Where to start?

      by nash1989 Online Now Aug 14, 2013 at 9:35 PM

      I am taking the Park bus from ottawa to algonquin park. It is my first time taking the bus there, and i was wondering if anyone knows which location is the best to stop at. I will only be with one other person and we would like to do some hiking/trails, rent a canoe for half a day or one day, and do the back country camping instead of staying in one place. Any info on a good site for these plans would be much appreciated!

      canoe rental

      by Christophe01 Online Now Aug 31, 2012 at 11:54 AM

      In planning my next trip, I would like to spend a day in Algonquin provincial park to practice canoeing. I searched on the web but it would seem that they rent only for two days minimum. Have you ever rent a canoe for half day in the park?
      I am interested by any informations
      Thanks.

    • Camping in Algonquin

      by randren Online Now Jan 31, 2012 at 6:31 AM

      I apologize for calling it camping - we're in an r.v. (cottage on wheels). We're planning our 1st trip to Algonquin this summer. Someone, who we have no way of contacting anymore, once told us that he stayed at Alg. in his r.v. and near that campground was a spot where you could jump into the water from the high rock on shore. Sound familiar to anyone? thanks.

    • Algonquin Provincial Park Canoe Trip

      by jreveillaud Online Now Jun 1, 2008 at 6:55 AM

      Hello to everyone,

      i'm actually working to prepare a canoe trip in the Park for a group of 10 adults campers for 4 days during the month of september and i have some questions. It would be very kind if anybody could give me some answsers.

      - We would like to stay all 10 together for the overnight camping but it seems that it's forbidden. Should we split our group ? What is the best solution ?

      - Wich itinerary could you advice ? We would like to have the most wilderness trip that it could be and we would like to see some animals if it's possible.

      - Is it very tiring ? We have some girls in our group and they are not very strong, is that a problem ?

      - Wich canoe renting company do you advice and should we take a tour with a guide ?

      Thank's in advance for all your answers.

      Have a nice day.

      Jay.

    • Best Algonquin lake to find two adjacent campsites?

      by rohanh Online Now Apr 28, 2008 at 1:49 AM

      I've been camping in Algonquin for 15 or so years, but I've mainly stuck to Rock and Opeongo. A couple of times I've noticed two adjecent sites that were close enough to be connected by a short (30 or 40 foot) path.

      I'm looking to find a lake where there are two such sites close to each other. If possible, a lake where there are a few clusters of two sites next to each other (in case one is occupied when we arrive)

      I realize that this is rare in Algonquin interior camping, but I've seen them a few times.

      Does anyone have any suggestions?

      Recommend a canoe route for July for novices

      by Eish Online Now Feb 10, 2008 at 12:17 AM

      Hello
      In July 2008, we will be in Algonquin and would like to canoe. We are 2 adults, 2 children (12 and 10). Perhaps another family with the same make-up will join us. Forgive me if some of the questions have obvious answers or I am not using the correct jargon. I have surfed the internet quite abit for recommended routes but I am absolutely overwhelmed with the detail available, and finding it tough to sift through the volume of material. So some personal recommendations would really be welcome.

      Some questions:
      1. we will come from Toronto and move on to Quebec. Should we hire a car, use public transport (who?) or an outfitter?
      2. Can you recommend a 3-day, 2 night canoe trail which would be suitable for canoe novices. We hike and camp frequently, know how to read a map. Some preferences:
      a. not too many people
      b. lots of wildlife
      c. a mix of open water, river and canoe-able marsh.
      d. portages should not be too hectic.
      3. Should we hire a guide or do it on our own?
      4. We will need to hire equipment - where?
      5. What should we book in advance?
      Thanks

    • maximum number of campers

      by rkto Online Now Jul 24, 2007 at 5:46 PM

      We have 8-10 people for an interior campsite... what is the risk to having too many people? the maximum is 9 people. 2 people are meeting us at the site (they arrive a few days earlier) and 2 people are only staying one night. Any thoughts? We are all very good - responsible adult campers.

      My husband and I are interested in doing a 5 day canoe trip. Looking at the official canoe map, we have picked four access points: 1)Lake Opeonago and environs; 2) Grand Lake - Achray; 3) Galeairy - Whitney; and 4) Shall Lake. We are curious if people would rate one of these areas as more scenic and less traveled.
