AS I may have mentioned, in a couple months, we’re going to be making a visit to Canada. Essentially, we’re going to circumnavigate Lake Ontario. Still not sure what the route will be. Initially, we thought we’d start by going northwest, visiting my wife’s alma mater of St. Lawrence University, then go north into Canada, head west, then south, then back east into the U.S.. But lately, we’ve considered start going west through New York, and enter Canada at Niagara Falls.
We all have passports, including the Daughter. One doesn’t NEED a passport to go Canada from the US; one could get an enhanced driver’s license or non-driver’s ID, or similar products. BUT one day we might want to fly somewhere in Canada or Mexico, and the alternate products are only good for traveling by land or sea, not by air.
We’ll see the Falls, of course; it’ll be the Daughter’s first time. I’ve always wanted to see Toronto, so that’s on the agenda; ideally, we’d see a Blue Jays game. More than one person has suggested staying outside the city proper, and use the mass transit. One of my coworkers highly recommended the Peterborough lift lock. We’d see Carol’s college on the return trip.
Hey, Canadians, especially you folks in southeastern Ontario! Anywhere else we ought to go that wouldn’t take us too far out of the way?

A passport would be essential if you all should find yourselves visiting other countries like, oh, I don’t know, New Zealand for example… 🙂
New Zealand, New Zealand…where is that again?
I recall Torontonian mass transit to be quite superior…
In Toronto, awesome sights include Casa Loma (a castle-sized mansion built early in the 20th century by a really eccentric rich guy), the Ontario Science Centre, and the Royal Ontario Museum. Oh, and the St Lawrence Public Market. And Chinatown, if you like Chinese stuff. Toronto is a jaw-droppingly huge city, and it’s amazing!
