Big days to remember in Toronto

In keeping with our quest to see as many "Big" things in Canada as possible, we spent two eclectic days in Canada's biggest city - Toronto.
West Toronto
North Toronto
East Toronto
Naturally we had to visit the World's Tallest Building (1975 - 2010) - the CN Tower.
Even after three decades the tower is an impressive, imposing building that dominates the Toronto skyline. It was a real experience visiting this Canadian icon - unfortunately time and our bank manager prevented us from completing the 'edge walk' - maybe next time!
World's tallest pencil sharpener?

Toronto's Red Light district!

Ready for take off.

The Tower is just one feature of this vibrant city. During the two days we spent wondering around, we spent time on the beach, in the markets, Chinatown, Hockey Hall of Fame,Rogers Stadium (home of the Blue Jays and Argonauts) and of course -  the shops
