Ottawa, the capitol of Canada, is situated in the province of Ontario. It is also where Toronto, the largest city and financial centre is located.
Toronto, like any other big city in the world, is full of fun, action, arts and entertainment, sports and adventure. It is the home of the Blue Jays, Raptors and Maple Leafs.
Maple Leaf Scene
Stroll along the waterfront at the shoreline of Lake Ontario, see an exhibition or experience a cultural event at the Harbourfront Centre. Have lunch or dinner at the CN Tower, or view the whole city from its observation deck of the world's tallest free-standing structure at 553.33m (over 1,800 feet). If you are acrophobic, maybe go to a Blue Jays game at the Skydome or watch the Rapters at Air Canada Centre. And if you are not into sports, then go shopping at the Toronto Eaton Centre, the world renown shopping mall that can make you shop till you drop.
If you are more into arts and historical sight seeing, take a tour of Casa Loma, a castle in the middle of the city. See the art and archaelogy exhibitions at the Ontario Art Gallery and the Royal Ontario Museum or have a hair-raising experience at Ontario Science Centre. Attend a concert at the Roy Thomson Hall, home of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra.
