CN Tower Photo, Toronto, Ontario
Quote:
As soon as I had decided to go to Toronto, I began looking up things to do and see while I was there. Visiting the CN Tower was on the very top of my list! == History == The CN Tower actually stands for Canada’s National Tower, after the railway company who built it, which was something I didn’t know until I actually visited this amazing attraction.

Hockey Hall of Fame Photo, Toronto, Ontario
Quote:
History The hall of fame was established through a former president of the CAHA (Canadian Amateur Hockey Association) and it was supposed to be built in the birthplace of hockey in Kingston instead of Toronto and was originally supposed to be called the International Hockey Hall of Fame. In 1958, sufficient funds had not been raised to build somewhere permanent in Kingston so the President of the NHL at the time decided to withdraw his support and decided that it should be built in Toronto instead. In 1958, a temporary exhibition was placed in the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame at Exhibition place and 350,000 people visited it during this year. In 1961, the first permanent ...Read More

Air Canada

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction | "A great airline"

Quote:
I’ve had a total of 4 flights with Air Canada now and each one has been fantastic. Best airline I’ve flown with. I haven’t used that many but out of those, this is by far the best. Both return flights were from UK to Toronto which are about 8 hours in total. I have flown with Air Canada from both London Gatwick and Manchester Airport, arriving at Toronto Pearson International Airport.== Booking and Price == The first time I booked flights to Toronto, I had no real idea about what airlines are the best and who had good reputations. I booked my flights through a local travel agent and they worked quite hard to find me the best prices, Air Canada it turns out, was not as expensive as I ...Read More
