Is that walking distance to/from the ACC do you think? I have never been to Toronto and neither has my "partner in crime" who is coming with me. We wanted to avoid as much driving as possible, especially city driving!

Our current plans (subject to change I'm sure!) is that we will be leaving our area of NY at about 7 in the morning. According to mapquest, its about a 5 1/2 hour drive to Toronto which should get us there in plenty of time to find our hotel before the show. Is there anything to do in the afternoon in that general area that will keep two teenagers from getting too bored?

There is Kensington Market, Queen St. Yorkville shopping and the usual touristy Hippo Bus tours around the city. Depending on their age, legal drinking age is 19 here, there is also the distillery district.

All across the downtown core, there are Bixi bikes. You simply rent these in one location and drop them off near to where you're going. They are all over the place and while you sign up online, you just use a credit card at the bike lockers to extract and return the bikes. It's pretty cool actually. Many streets have a designated bike lane as well.

There is also the CN tower if it's a clear day, and the weather is nice, some may opt for a little walk along the outside tethered in safety gear, or stick with the some what more mundane glass floor.

You can buy a TTC (Toronto Transit Commission) day pass that allows you to jump on and off street cars and the subway as you please. It's a pretty good way to get around the core. As well there is the PATH system which is an all underground walking network for the mole people. Rolleyes

I should mention the harbour tours though it would seem October is late in the season to enjoy that. Last year it was very nice warm fall weather here in Toronto so it's perhaps worth checking out for those interested.

There is no shortage of things to see and do in Toronto.
Can't wait for all you folks to arrive.

Oh Bleat!
