    • Barkersville Historic Goldrush town

      Province of British Columbia Yesterday

      Is it worth putting on a 13 hour return trip and 2 over night stops to see this town. Planning to drive up from Revelstoke and Kamloops then head back to Whistler. Yes the town looks interesting but in all practicality can we justify the mileage and cost - roughly how long will it take to see - possibly compare it to Colonial Williamsburg USA. May be there are interesting places on route to justify this journey. Also thought of visiting Sandon Ghost town - is this like Bodie in the USA

      All help greatly appreciated

      I note from BC ferries web page that they operate an Inside Day Cruise during summer months - however, they seem to have wiped the details from their website for this year and have not put up the schedule/fares for 2015. We hope to visit June/July 2015 - so if anyone has any details of this year's schedule etc that we could use as a baseline it would be much appreciated

      I understand the Winter carnival is from Jan 30-Feb 15. We are thinking of coming Feb 7th weekend (my husband and I). Don't know Quebec, suggestions on hotels to stay? Would like to be able to walk to events. Was on the Carnival website, there is a night parade on the 7th and a canoe race on the 8th. Is it worth it to get the VIP tickets ($42.50 pp for parade, $52.50 pp for canoe ride). Lastly, I heard about the ice hotel. Is there a shuttle we could take to get there? Any other comments or suggestions greatly appreciated!!

      Public transport from Eglinton to North York

      by dongix Online Now Aug 1, 2013 at 12:03 PM

      Hello all :) My family and I are relocating to Toronto and will live in the Yonge and Eglinton area. I am not driving so we are relying on public transportation. We have already arranged an apartment before we arrive there and one of the big things to do is to furnish it. After comparing the prices among the affordable furniture shops, we found IKEA to be the most affordably priced. The nearest one is located in North York. May I please know if it's possible to take any form of public transport from Eglinton Avenue East to Provonst Drive in North York? I have already lookep it up on Google maps. There seems to be a good walking distance from the nearest Bus Stop to IKEA in North York but we don't mind the walk. As long as we can go to Provonst from Eglinton via public transport, it should be ok (I guess). Any help/input from you guys is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

      Looking for a way to go from toronto to niagara falls. One company charges $151 and makes stops to places I do not want to go. Plus it leaves before they turn on the light show. What tour companies do you know of that is cheaper? Or is it best that I take the train or bus over there? If the latter, is the train or bus stations in both Toronto and Niagara safe or ratchet?

      Ok, so I have searched through several of the threads for suggestions for this, and I have found some. In July, four of my friends and I are visiting Toronto. We are wondering if it is worth it to use the TTC pass? Or would it be better for us to go by Taxi? We will be staying near the airport, but we will definitely be checking out the city. We will be there for four nights, and five days.

      Niagra Falls tour and Blue Jays baseball game.

      by bzulu67 Online Now Mar 9, 2013 at 5:49 AM

      Hi all,
      Looking to do a Niagra Falls with Lady of the Mist organised day tour by bus, with pick-up from hotel, at the beginning of September. Would it be cheaper to book online now or wait until I get to Toronto. What tour company would you recommend?

      Would like to see the Toronto Blue Jays baseball game on Saturday, 31st August at 1:07pm. I have looked at ticket prices online with MLB Tickets Experts ( The ticket price I chose is $24 + $4.08 service fee + $40 delivery, $68.08 total. Ticket price although way back in the arena is good, but the delivery charge is extortionate. Thinking of waiting until I get there to book, or would all the tickets have been sold by then?

      Many thanks,
