To . . . TORONTO
Toronto will always have a soft spot in my heart simply because, it’s where I got my feet wet. I had never been anywhere, outside of the country . I’m ashamed to admit that I hadn’t even ever been on an plane before. So, even though it was not too far North of home, Toronto was the perfect place to start because of it’s impressionable cleanliness, friendly locals and many different places to explore .
When they say that it’s one of the world’s most diverse cities, it’s not an exaggeration. You pick up on this when you walk the streets. Never before had I noticed how dirty some of the beloved cities are at home until I walked the relatively immaculate streets of Toronto. Even though we lodged in a neighborhood near the airport to save money, we spent most of our time in Old Toronto.
Catching A Blue Jays Game Under The CN Tower
When I said that I was able to get my feet wet here, I meant literally. While walking the shore of Lake Ontario, I was able to sneak a tow or two into the water. The lake shore has a pretty little park area with tasteful landscaping and is well lined with little bars. Here you can meet many locals who are passionate about their Maple Leafs. If you are lucky, you may even be able to run into a nice family who hooks you up with baseball tickets to the sold out game. The next game just happened to be the day that Roberto Alomar got inducted into thee Hall of Fame.While walking to the game we trekked through the Skywalk, an enclosed sidewalk for colder whether. The weather was perfect during our stay, perhaps a little warm. But when the sun got too bright we were able have a few beers in the shadow of the CN Tower, the tallest structure in the Western Hemisphere. On days that the roof opens in the Rogers Centre, it’s simply a sports lovers paradise.
