    • 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

    • One week time in British Columbia. Suggestions ?

      Canada Dec 23, 2016 at 10:14 PM

      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 ?

      My husband and I will be staying in Toronto for 3 days in June 2016. We would like to make a day trip to Niagara Falls but, as we don't have a car and we prefer not to hire one, we wondered what would be the best way to do the trip. We are happy to use public transport if that is a feasible option. Otherwise, we would do a tour but would like some recommendations on what company to use.

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.

      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!:)

      We are looking to visit Niagara Falls for a short 4day/3 night weekend. We would be able to visit during either early March or early April. We would be driving from northeast Ohio. Does anyone have any recommendations on inexpensive centrally located hotels. We would like to see as much as possible in the short period of time and hopefully do some non touristy things as well. We are in our early 20's, not so much into the bar scene but are seeking more of the Falls and scenic areas. Any input would be great, Thank you!

      Anyone done the Adventure Pass?

      by mickey.p Online Now Aug 8, 2014 at 1:09 PM

      Hi, I am visiting Niagara Falls for 27 hours (ish) at the end of August, it is a flying visit at the end of a 2 week holiday and as we have been before (in Winter) and made the most of Clifton Hill and all it's tackiness we are wanting to see an unfrozen Niagara Falls!

      We were going to do the Maid of the mist/Hornblower trip but then someone suggested the Adventure Pass that includes Hornblower Niagara Cruises (new Niagara Falls boat tour), Journey Behind the Falls, Niagara's Fury and White Water Walk. I know little about any of these and just wondered if anyone could advise?

      I will be in Niagara on 31st August from about 1-2pm (travelling from Toronto Centre after a weekend at the Ex and Comicon Event) I would think and we fly home to the UK on 1st September at 10.30pm so I would think we would leave around 5pm.

      Does anyone know anything of these tours etc and how long we should allow for them?

    • Pedestrian Exit at U.S. side of Rainbow Bridge

      by finally26 Online Now Jul 29, 2014 at 5:34 AM

      I'm meeting a friend who is walking across the Rainbow Bridge from Canada to the U.S.
      Where exactly do pedestrians exit the customs booth on the right side of the toll plaza. Do they come out into a parking lot where folks park to enjoy the park and falls, or do they follow where the cars leave the plaza (doesn't look all that walking friendly with all the traffic).
      I'd like to be able to be as near as possible to meet my friend and am not sure where to wait.
