CN Tower, Rogers Centre, Harbourfront and downtown Toronto

We took Irvin and Faye to our first itinerary. We should have gone to Toronto Zoo but the weather forecast for today is not a good time to have outdoor activities so went to CN Tower and nearby attractions first. We took TTC and walked from the Union Station (it's a small version of the Grand Central Station in NY) to the CN Tower. We had plenty of photo opportunities on the way and when we arrived and got our tickets, we were advised that it's not a good time because of zero visibility. When we stepped out, the rain has stopped and the sky is clear so we just proceeded to our CN Tower tour. CN Tower means Canadian National Tower which was previously owned and named after a rail company. We enjoyed the Glass floors where we can see the top of Rogers Centre (this is where the baseball games are played, home of the Blue Jays) and also the motion ride but Miggy cried the whole time.

Next stop was Harbourfront Centre. We passed by an old turnstile and saw a streetcar. The Harbourfront Centre is almost empty because it's raining and most of the people are shopping (It's boxing sale today). We got nice photo opps here but the Pier restaurants are closed, we just had late lunch at Swiss Chalet.

We rode the Streetcar going back Union Station then went to Nathan Philip Square and the Old Toronto City Hall. We passed by Hudson Bay-The Bay and Toronto Eaton Center. Irvin and Faye had photo opps at the Yonge-Dundas Square- the Times Square equivalent before we headed home. We were all tired and the kids had mild fever but still played Monopoly before we hit the sack. It was a fun day.
