    • What is the best service station restaurant in the Gananoque area?

      Gananoque Mar 21, 2015 at 11:53 AM

      We stopped at a service station and restaurant in the Gananoque area at a crossroad several months ago on our way through that area and not thinking we would be there again, promptly forgot the name/location. We had the most wonderful food--large portions, great sandwiches and wonderful pies and of course, gasoline. This is a longshot, but can anyone help with name/location suggestions.

      Driving around British Columbia

      Canada Apr 12, 2015 at 7:42 PM

      Hi everyone

      My wife and I are holidaying in Canada, mostly in British Columbia in October this year. We're flying into Vancouver and staying at the Fairmont Waterfront for 2 nights. Then we are travelling on the Rocky Mountaineer to Banff via Kamloops.

      We have a van booked for a driving holiday with our daughter, son in law and granddaughter for a couple of weeks. The itinerary for the driving holiday is

      Banff - Fairmont Springs
      Lake Louise - Fairmont Chateau
      Jasper - Patricia Lake Bungalows
      Sun Peaks - Bear Country Trails Edge
      Whistler - Whistler Platinum First Tracks Lodge
      Victoria - Fairmont Empress
      Vancouver - Fairmont Waterfront

      We are staying at all of these places for 2 nights each. I was wondering if anyone had any advice on things to do in and around the towns above. Things that interest us include visiting wineries, sightseeing, photography, chairlift rides, snow mobile tours.

      Thank you for any feedback.

      best taxi company?

      Victoria Apr 13, 2015 at 11:22 AM

      I have been researching means of getting to the airport from Victoria BC. I have looked at the reviews of 3 taxi companies, and the reviews aren't very helpful because one will rate a *****, and the other will only a *. I usually throw out the highest and lowest, but in this case, they are all either extreme. I usually like the Yellow Cab, but reviews have not been good. Neither have the ones for Blue Bird Taxi or Victoria Taxi. Which one would you use?? Thanks!

      Road trips out of Toronto?/Shuttle bus from Toronto airports to Downtown?

      Canada Apr 12, 2015 at 8:46 AM

      Hello all
      Can anyone recommend towns worth seeing, say within a 250km radius of Toronto city? A couple of relatives are hiring a car in Toronto to spend 3-4 days elsewhere and they don't want to drive blindly...if they know the happening places before they go, that would be great!
      Also, are there shuttle buses from the 2 Toronto airports to the Downtown area of Toronto?
      Lastly, as Irish citizens traveling from Dublin, what documentation are they expected to fill out and will they do this in Dublin airport, Toronto airport or must they pre-apply for visa's to visit?
      Thank you all again!!!

    • Toronto city vs Niagara falls stay?

      Toronto Mar 24, 2015 at 7:46 PM

      Earlier this week, I posted a question asking for tips on things to do in Niagara falls during the first week of April, since many of the amenities will still be closed due to the season. and received a lot of very helpful feedback! Now i'm wondering- would it be better to just stay in the city of Toronto, and just do a day trip to Niagara falls while there? Would there be more to do/things to see during this time in Toronto city, than in NIagara falls? Any tips or advice on things to do or see in the city of Toronto?

      VT Mini Meet October 2015

      Expressions of Interest wanted :o) We will be in Vancouver early October and would love to meet up with some locals.
      So far we have Ann75, the_dutchman, YVRDave and Darby 2 interested in saying hello.
      We are staying at the Granville Island Hotel and I guess the best place on Granville Island would be the Dockside Seafood Restaurant.
      So my question is, which date is more suitable, dinner on Friday 9th October?..... lunch/dinner on Saturday 10th October?
      We would love to include a bit of a photo shoot on the river. Maybe some boat light trails or time-lapse photography, or nice night light photos :o)
      So, who's interested?... and which day suits you the best?
      Hope to see you all there!

      A few basic questions for a future first time visitor to Toronto!

      Toronto Apr 4, 2015 at 3:09 PM

      Hello everyone!
      I'm doing a little pre-trip research on Toronto and had a few questions which I hope ye can help me with!

      Is there only 1 airport near the city? And I presume that has several terminals?
      What is the area of Corktown like? I presume that is well outside the touristy area/most popular districts?
      Is it fair to say that the Downtown area is where it's all happening?
      Should we base ourselves there to be close to all the main attractions?
      Are there any areas of Toronto which should be avoided? (Sorry if this is a silly question!)
      Are there regular daily organised visits to Niagara Falls from Toronto?
      Can you tell me the best (and the biggest) shopping malls in Toronto? Starting with the most central :)
      Hotels are looking very very pricey in the Downtown area. Is this the norm? Are there more reasonable mid-range options also located centrally?

      As you can see from these questions, I am struggling in these early stages of my research :)

      Bike Touring on PEI Mid June 2013

      Prince Edward Island Feb 11, 2013 at 6:59 PM

      I am planning on cycle touring trip (mix of camping and hotels) for mid June. I have been hearing not all attractions/restaurants/etc are open then. Is that correct ? Also, any suggestions whether we head to West side or east? I know we can't do all. We plan on riding 5 or 6 days, 40-50 miles/day (to allow sightseeing). I have info on the Confederation Trail and we might use that for some riding but like the coastal areas.

      We could go later in summer, my reasoning for June was to avoid some of the crowds and issues with trying to find accommodations.

      We would be arriving via car and leaving car near Gateway village.
      Any challenges with wind ? or possibly best bet for riding?

      any feedback/suggestions would be appreciated! thanks

      I hear that Woodleigh Park has gone into bankruptcy, is this true? What is going to happen with it? I think that this park is well worth saving. It needs to be re-furbished qand advertised more. After I saw it about 15 yrs. ago, I told everyone who was heading to Prince Edward Island it was a MUST see...and manyI know travelled there just to see that. You have a gem there that no other place in Canada has! I cannot see why you do not pounce on it...tourists love it and more would if they knew about it. I went through all of the PEI brochures at two different years, and never did I see it mentioned ONCE! You have more treasures than Anne of Green Gables...and that wears thin after awhile.
