    • Weather April/May

      Quebec Jan 6, 2017 at 12:21 PM

      To those of you who have helped and advised with the NZ trip I'm grateful but we simply can't afford it - so we're heading back to Canada

      Our rough proposed plan is to fly into Boston drive up through Lake Placid and on to Montreal/Ottawa/Quebec City -not sure if it's worth visiting Halifax so might well come back a more direct route. Thinking of visiting April/May but what about snowfall? All suggestions much appreciated - not into outdoor activities but very much folk music and historic sites - we've done Niagra

      Also on my want to do list is to see the Canadian Mounted Police show - I'm visiting their website daily but from past experience is there liable to be a show in Ottawa at this time of year

    • 1st week in Feb

      Vancouver Island Jan 17, 2017 at 5:17 AM

      We have the chance to visit from London during 1st week in Feb. Probably not the best time to visit but its all we have. Will there be enough for us to do/see? Will we be able to drive around (Whistler?) or will the weather make that impossible? Grateful for your thoughts.

      glass bridge

      Canada Yesterday

      I remember seeing that there is a glass bridge in either Jasper or Banif, but I can't recall the details. I had not paid much attention as I did not intend on going that way any time soon, but now I will be going to both this summer and am wondering where it is. Thanks

    • One week time in British Columbia. Suggestions ?

      Canada Dec 23, 2016 at 10:14 PM

      Hello,
      We are looking to spend one weeks time in British Columbia area, which is next week. Considering weather and roads, we believe Victoria, Tofino or may be Vancouver should be ok. We are coming from Portland.
      We are not into shopping, snow sports or food, but more keen to see natural sceneries. Though Tofino and Victoria have been discussed a lot on forums, I am not able to find, when question comes, what should see in Victoria in 3 days and what should I see in Tofino in 3 days.
      Can somebody help us with this ?
      Thanks

    • Your personal face picture

      Canada Jan 7, 2017 at 9:30 PM

      It might be a good idea to delete your personal picture, eg, face from your profile and any personal information as who knows what will be done with the information once VT is no longer active. Think of doing this from a security aspect.

      Where to stay?

      by mickey.p Online Now Oct 28, 2013 at 7:52 AM

      Hi, I'm visiting Canada from 20th to 28th December, our plan was to do 2-3 nights Toronto, 4-5 Nights Barrie and 1 night Niagara before leaving for our next destination.

      We have friends in Innisfil near Barrie hence us staying there, we will be there over Christmas etc, can anyone recommend somewhere to stay? I know very little about Barrie and imagined a lake with hotels surrounding it but when researching the hotels I find them all on major highways etc!

      We are looking for middle of the road, good reviews in OK location - if we can get a suite then even better so we can make basic meals etc. We have considered Monte Carlo, Comfort Inn, The Hampton inn and Suites, Days Inn and such like but not making headway - can anyone recommend one or 2?

      We are also considering staying in Barrie for 7 nights and commuting to Toronto as we don't want to do too much there - is this realistic? It's only an idea but my friends husband commutes for work and also my friends son is probably going to want to come to Toronto with our son so thought it was worth considering!

      Any advice is appreciated!

      Anyone going to the Barrie Live 8 Concert?

      by CdnJane Online Now Jun 21, 2005 at 7:45 PM

      Just curious what others think about Barrie, and "Park Place" (formerly Molson's Park) getting the concert instead of Toronto or some place else in Ontario or Canada. I hope that people aren't scared off by the fears of traffic jams - being a holiday weekend, the traffic is going to be horrible to start with, but... YIKES! I remind all those heading north to give themselves lots of time. The concert goes from 11am to 8pm.
      Remember to check out the Barrie pages for some ideas about places to eat - there are lots of restaurants at the Molson Drive exit, but they will be very crowded, I imagine. More restaurants at the Highway 400 exits to Essa Road, Dunlop Street and Bayfield Street (Hwy 26/27 north).
      Anyway, don't look for me - I know lots of back roads between Toronto & Barrie, but don't look forward to the other people that have found them too!!! So, I'll be staying in Toronto for the weekend.
