The Canadiens boards seem oddly unresponsive. So I'm tossing it on here in hope some of my fellow Westerners have some migrant experience. Any help will be majorly appreciated!
We'll be driving and hitting up Toronto and Montreal as the focus of our trip with day trips planned to Niagara Falls, Ottawa and Quebec city respectively. Unfortunately we don't have a whole lot of time, so I think we'll only be in each major city for 2 or 3 days. Will probably hit up a Blue Jays game, the HHOF, and Canada's Wonderland in Toronto. I have general admission tickets to the Grand Prix in Montreal on June 9th. But I'm looking for other suggestions of things to do and see during our brief visits. Looking for intensive, very "Toronto" and "Montreal" type experiences.
If you have kids or just enjoy animals I'd suggest African Lion Safari and or Marine Land. African Lion Safari is the better of the two though. Go to a weekday afternoon Jays game if at all possible (way easier to get good seats). And usually you can catch a solid play that has moved off Broadway in Toronto. Over the years when I've been there I've caught The Lion King, The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe and Les Mis.
