Cana - Dream - Part 3

By Srishti Khemani


In case my readers don't know this already, I LOVE VANCOUVER!!!


Our last day there was spent at Capilano suspension bridge. There is a free bus service that runs every 30 minutes from downtown to the park. This is the good thing about researching before you go to another country!! You need to know what is what, If we had not checked up on the free shuttle, we would probably end up spending way more. The bus is very comfortable. You only pay when you get to Capilano. The bus driver took us via Lions gate bridge and Stanley Park which was superb. The entrance cost was around $36 CAD pp. There is extreme nature here! The bridge is huge. I have never seen anything like this before.


View from the bridge

The Capilano Suspension Bridge is a simple suspension bridge crossing the Capilano River in the District of North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The current bridge is 140 meters (460 ft)[1] long and 70 meters (230 ft) above the river. in May 2004, Treetops Adventures was opened, consisting of seven footbridges suspended between old-growth Douglas Fir trees on the west side of the canyon, forming a walkway up to 30 meters (98 ft) above the forest floor.

The bridge concluded my Vancouver adventure!!



The next day we took a flight to Toronto, Ontario. We stayed with my husband's family in Brampton.

We did a lot when in Ontario, a large part of it was catching up with friends and family. The day we got to Downtown Toronto was epic. The train ride was an hour-long from Brampton. There is a train service that connects all suburbs across Toronto. Once at Union Station, we took our time walking any direction we liked in the streets. The Downtown area is very busy, cultural and has many unique attractions. We spent most of our time in the Entertainment District, just walking and taking photos.


There are a lot of great places to eat around here. We started with a small lunch.


We then walked out to the CN tower. It's GLORIOUS! The CN Tower held the record for the world's tallest free-standing structure for 32 years until 2007 when it was surpassed by the Burj Khalifa and was the world's tallest tower until 2009 .It is a signature icon of Toronto's skyline[15][16] and attracts more than two million international visitors annually.






(Rogers center)


CN tower is right next to Rogers center, the multi-purpose stadium in Downtown, Toronto. It is home to the Toronto Blue Jays of Major League Baseball. The stadium was renamed "Rogers Centre" following the purchase of the stadium by Rogers Communications, which also owned the Toronto Blue Jays, in 2005




Followed by that was more touristy stuff. We walked first to the Eaton center. It is North America's busiest shopping mall, due to extensive transit access, its downtown location, and tourist traffic.



(City Hall)


Then we got to the City hall. Toronto's largest (and most photographed) outdoor ice rink is set to open at Nathan Phillips Square in just a few weeks for The Cavalcade of Lights. Featuring fireworks, live musical performances and, of course, the lighting of Toronto's official 60-foot-tall Christmas Tree. I wish to be here during Christmas the next time around!

I hope you enjoyed getting a straight-up touristy glimpse of Toronto with me!! I look forward to continuing sharing my Ontario adventure as I plan to share my road trip to the countryside in the next post!
