Hockey Hall of Fame, hot or not?
What is Hockey Hall of Fame
The Hockey Hall of Fame is a hall of fame and museum located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Dedicated to the history of ice hockey, it contains exhibits that feature interactive displays, players, teams, NHL records, memorabilia and NHL trophies, including the Stanley Cup. The Hall of Fame was first established in 1943 thanks to the efforts of James T. Sutherland and was originally located in Kingston, Ontario. The first class of honourees was officially inducted in 1945, before the Hall of Fame had a permanent location. It was moved to Toronto in 1958 after the NHL withdrew its support of Kingston and its first permanent building opened at the Exhibition Place in 1961. In 1993, the Hall was outgrowing its location and was relocated to a former Bank of Montreal building in downtown Toronto, which where it is currently located.

Even if you're not a big hockey fan, Hockey Hall of Fame should be an interesting place to visit. I'm not and I enjoyed it. If in Toronto, don't miss it!

According to the ever trustworthy Wikipedia the tower is actually 553.33 metres (1,815.4 ft) tall. And as such the tallest free standing structure in North America. Sounds great! I think this is a must-see sight on my trip to Toronto.

Be sure to have lot of time when you're having an onward flight connection. This airport is one those where you get lost easily. And once you get yourself in a certain area, it's not that easy to get back where you came from.
Nothing beats a hot summer's day at the ballpark with a cold one and a hot dog enjoying a baseball game. The Toronto Blue Jays play at Rogers Centre (formerly SkyDome) which has a retractable roof in case it rains! When the roof is open, you're able to get a beautiful view of the CN Tower. I highly recommend you check out at least one game if you're in Toronto this summer. Here's the Blue Jays 2009 schedule:

Oh boy, my beloved toronto blue jays!!! Baseball is back!!
I might be going this summer and haven't been to Toronto since I was a kid. Any cool bars/hotels near the stadium?
A big city with a small city feeling. Very much to my liking: lots of things to see and most of them at a walking distance. The athmosphere in Toronto reminded me of New York, except that it wasn't so packed and busy but more fun. I visited Toronto during Feb. I imagine that the parks and beaches and isles would make the city even more fun during the summer months.

The city of Toronto publishes 11 Discovery walks around the different areas of the city. If visiting go to city hall which Jussi has pictured above and then take local transit to the start. The brochures explain a lot of the history and natural beauty.
CN Tower is THE sight in Toronto. But then again, it's only a tall tower. :-) I didn't go up. The tower is a great landmark and it looks quite majestetic. I arrived in Toronto late in the evening and the tower was a spectacular sight in the dark with different colors of lights going up and down the tower.

This is where Toronto's basketball and ice hockey teams play their homegames. In this huge sports venue everything is labeled after either Raptors or Maple Leafs. I went to see Toronto Maple Leafs play againts Columbus Blue Jackets. It was a thight game that ended 3-4 for the visiting team after penalty shots. Of the finnish players Niklas Hagman was on ice but Vesa Toskala didn't play... We definitely would've needed Toskala as the goalkeeper...

A cheap hotel at a very convenient location. The hotel was only 100 meters from the College subway station and at a walking distance to most of the major tourist sights. Free wifi worked well in the lobby but wasn't usable in my room at 21st floor. Fitness room was ok, if you settle for free weights.
The nearest airport express bus stop is about one and a half blocks away.

Supposedly one of the hidden gems of Toronto. I didn't have time to visit this Indian restaurant but I was told that it is the best in Toronto. Despite the hole-in-the-wall looks and cardboard plates, the food is excellent. On my todo-list for my next visit.

AGO is worth visiting only for the crazy architecture by Toronto's own Frank Gehry. The almost labyrinth-like building surprises you many times when you wander through the halls and stairs. The north-side facade looks magnificient especially from inside. I was short of time so I wish I would have gone directly to the two upper floors where they hosted the very interesting contemporary art exhibitions. Also the ship models in the basement were definitely worth seeing.
The entrance fee is $18CAD. Plus $1 for leaving your coat.
Bolton is great for a day hike if in the Toronto area. The Humber Heritage Trail is about 17 km long. In Bolton the trail starts from a park along the Humber River and heads north into a huge ravine. The terrain on the route is gentle hills with a 2 km country road section before connecting with the Trans Canada Trail. The best time to hike is in late September or early October when the trees are ablaze with colour.
