Wow, no activity here at all! But I'll give it a try.

I'll be in Toronto next week and am looking for suggestions as to "must see" places (I love to walk and don't like to shop) or good restaurants - from a good breakfast place to gourmet dinners.

I'll be staying downtown.

Thanks.

Christina

Well these are definate tourist traps, but still worth seeing are the CN-Tower and the Hockey Hall of Fame. There is also a decent theatre district in TO if that sort of thing interests you...

Christina,

I ate at "The Keg" close to my hotel off the 401. There should be one downtown, just ask at your hotel. It's a steak house and bar, nice atmosphere and good food.

I was told to visit the CN tower. Hope to see that Wednesday morning since we have time to kill before our little twin prop is ready to leave ;)

Tuesday as in, November 4? You're in luck, the Leafs play Pittsburgh that night. Unfortunately Mario Lemieux is questionable for the Penguins because of a hip injury.

They play at the Air Canada Centre, which is right downtown. I have no idea what the parking situation is like as I've never been there (haven't been to Toronto in eons, actually -- must recify that).

Have fun!

Thanks. Was just being told to take the subway downtown from my location <Sheppard St. - near the Fairview<sp?> mall.

Then I have Wed morning to check out downtown until I have to be back at the airport for 1pm.

Spent the evening at a local bar, Phoenix & Firkin - did get to see the hockey fight, er, game on TV. Hockey and karaoke - interesting mix ;)

On my way to the airport, drove downtown to get a glimpse of the CN Tower. Stopped for a traffic light on Yonge St. The light turned green, but blinking - I hesitated since a blinking green light is not common in the US. Does the blinking green indicate that oncoming traffic doesn't have a green light???

Enjoyed my time in Toronto - just wish the sun would have appeared. It did in the clouds on the way home.

B.C. has blinking green lights -- it means that the signals don't run on a timer and will stay green until either a car pulls up on the cross street or a pedestrian hits the crosswalk button. I'm not sure if it's the same in Ontario.

I know this is very delayed but the flashing green light means it is an 'Advanced Green'. In other words the left turn lane can turn as the traffic in the other direction does not yet have a green light. Cars going straight with the 'Advanced Green' can move through the intersection as well.


Thanks,
