    • 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.

    • Detroit to Vancouver, layover in Toronto, what the process?

      Toronto Mar 9, 2015 at 3:24 PM

      Hello! First time poster, but I've used your site for answers before. I live in the US. In June, I'm traveling to Vancouver for a week. I'm flying out of Detroit on Air Canada with a layover in Toronto. I've never flown to Canada before, so I"m wondering what the process is for custom's etc. I'm assuming I have to go through customs when I get there in Toronto, but does that mean I have to exit and then go through security again? Any tips or tricks or experiences you think I could learn from? Any thing at all! I appreciate your help ahead of time! Thanks!

    • Photographer at Niagara Falls

      Niagara Falls Yesterday

      Hi,

      My husband and I are visiting Ontario for 3 weeks in October 2015. Our first place to visit is Niagara Falls to renew our wedding vows, I know rather silly but just something we want to do....hahahaha. It will only be us two and was looking for someone to take a few pictures of the occasion. Been looking at websites and we don't wish to pay the silly $1000+ prices.
      Does anyone know anyone who can help?

      We are also going to Coe Hill, Ottawa and Mississauga areas and looking for any suggestions for good flea markets.

      Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Thanks

      Debbie

    • Niagra Falls near by attractions

      Niagara Falls Mar 22, 2015 at 1:05 PM

      We are visiting Niagara falls the first weekend of April. As many of the Niagara falls amenities will not be open due to seasonal timing while we are there, we were hoping to take a few day trips to near by areas, kind of get a feel for Canada itself! If anyone has any suggestions as to some scenic or recommended areas to visit within reasonable driving distance to niagara falls, would appreciate any input!:)

    • 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?

      Christmas/New Years in Yellowknife

      by jjkent Online Now Aug 14, 2014 at 10:24 PM

      I am planning a winter adventure in NWT or YT. I am a former Alaska resident and would like to spend about a week skiing (classic and skate), ice fishing, skijoring, kite skiing, camping, viewing the northern lights, bars & restaurants, etc. Most of my friends here in the States are not even remotely interested in joining me on my winter adventure so I would love to join groups or find a guide to do these things. My time off is around Christmas and/or New Years. My question: where should I go in Yellowknife, or should I go somewhere else in Canada, i.e. Whitehorse? Thanks!

      Trip booked! How to best survive the extreme cold in Yellowknife?

      by leigh767 Online Now Dec 17, 2013 at 7:06 PM

      Hi all, I'm heading to Yellowknife in early March for the northern lights and will be spending hours outdoors as I plan to be photographing heavily and doing time lapse photography as well. I know temperatures will drop to about -30C (-22F) at night and the last time I was in that sort of cold, it was outright painful.

      Would like to be better prepared for this big trip. Does anyone have tips on what to pack? The VT Yellowknife's What To Pack Section has only one tip ("pack a fishing rod") so I'm hoping to get more insights from anyone who's been there/lives there.

      I know parks are a must - and I'm planning to rent one when I get there since I live in the tropics so there's no point buying one. Does anyone know what the rental price range is like? And any other packing tips will be GREATLY appreciated. Right now my plan is very under-developed. I just know that boots, parkas, and heat packs for the hands/feet are a must. Anything else?

    • I'm planning to run the Yellowknife Marathon in August 2011 and...

      by TorontoDuluth Online Now Jun 9, 2011 at 9:46 AM

      I need some advice. I've always wanted to take a trip up there, and I love running marathons (I'm making a vacation out of this, running Yellowknife's marathon one week and Edmonton's race a week or so later). Now, I've conquered Vancouver, Toronto, Chicago, Minneapolis; expensive cities, all on a budget! I've never travelled to a remote location that is expensive to get to, and might not have the selection of budget hostels (not dumps!). I don't really see much in Yellowknife; if you're familiar with the city, are there backpacker hostels or places like the 'Y' where someone like myself could stay at for a couple days? Just from looking at the map I'd like to be near YK Centre so I don't need to depend on a car while I'm there.

      Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks!
