Well, you could visit the Canadian side of Niagara falls. And visit the new casino there too. Toronto is also good. But it all depends on what you and your girlfriend like to do. Site see? Activities? Amusment parks?

Well, for site seeing, Niagara Falls. For Amusment parks, Canada's Wonderland. For activities... Well there are tons of things around Toronto, Hamilton and Niagara.

You could look through this site and find some more things http://www.ontariotravel.net/

9 days...you could see Toronto, go camping in Algonquin, make your way to Quebec City, and return. That's what I'd do to get a little bit of everything crammed into 9 days.

Good luck!

I would check out Quebec city. It was many years ago and I was much younger but I remember the "old" city being pretty cool, europeanish. If you just want outdoors stuff Mont Tremblant is very nice but I was only there in the winter not summer.

To paraphrase the simpsons: "We live in America, why go to America Junior?"



J/K I'd like to see some of the Great White North sometime as well. I don't think I'd go to Montreal though... I'm afraid I might catch whatever makes the Expos suck so bad.

Found my big long speel I gave to someone.....cutting....pasting....go!

Ok, first thing that comes to mind - a Toyota commercial!
They have this Toyota commercial that is promoting driving across Canada and has a book full of tips and places to go....I think you can pick it up at
any Toyota dealership or http://www.canadiandriver.com/news/040414-1.htm
Linkys are closer to the bottom of the article.

There are alot of things to do here in Ontario.
http://www.torontotourism.com/
Niagara Falls is always the huge crowd pleaser.
Stumbled upon tours of Toronto and Niagara Falls,
www.chariots-of-fire.com
Niagara-on-the-lake (small town close to Niagara) is home to alot of
wineries. You can take a tour and sample wines....absolutely awesome,
http://www.niagaraonthelake.com/wine.jsp,
http://www.personaltours.ca/niagara-on-the-lake.html

Of course the CN Tower. There are tonnes of art galleries, museums and fun
things to do downtown TO. Different markets - St. Lawrence Market, also
Chinatown, Little Italy (we have little cities within Toronto)

Helicopter tours can be taken both of Toronto and Niagara Falls.
www.nationalhelicopters.com .

Well, there are zoo's http://www.torontozoo.com/ , www.junglecatworld.com ,
www.bowmanvillezoo.com and the like although African Lion Safari is hardly a
zoo - it's well a safari, www.lionsafari.com

Warplane museum in Hamilton - www.warplane.com
Also Woodbine Racetrack - they have live racing and a casino

Outdoors things - well, most of those things are north.
Depending on when you come (fall is by far the most magnificent) and how
much of a drive you want to do...Algonquin Park is the way to go (it's about
3 hours north of where I am!) http://www.algonquinpark.on.ca/ Hiking,

of brochures last year for things to do - looks like it came in handy.) I
haven't been to all these places, but some I have. If you are looking for
more specific info, just let me know.
