Toronto For First Timers!?

We're NYCers going on a 2 week trip to Toronto on the 26th. We've never been! What are the new exciting sites? The old established stuff? (Again, we've never been!) We like history, werid engineering dork stuff, movie stuff, dive bars, gayness, unusual stores and secondhand vintage menswear. We don't drive, but we'd like a nice trip out of town by train or even bus. Exciting cuisine a must overall. [more inside]

Canada's really big

I got some great suggestions about visiting British Columbia last year, but we didn't make it that far because we already had so many stops. This year we want to visit Crater Lake, Portland, B. C., and Seattle (in that order, due to the timing of an event in Seattle and having to rush back home for the fall semester). And I have some more specific questions about the whole Canada thing.

Toronto Hotel For A First Timer

We're visiting Toronto for the first time! We need a place to stay for two weeks! We don't know what to look for in a hotel aside from a nice place, but I'd like something fun and the SO would like a quiet place with lots of amenities (think wifi and breakfasts) that isn't too, in his words, "werid". All suggestions open and none of us drive, so public transit links/ access to typical tourist tat are key.

Place to hang out in Ottawa for dinner and reading

I might or might not be needing a place to spend Saturday evening in Ottawa, for dinner and some time afterwards with a book. I'd like to not be rushed out, I don't care if it has booze, wifi is not necessary, and nearish Nepean would be best. I have a car.

A weekend in Winnipeg: what to do, where to stay, what to eat?

We're going to be in Winnipeg for a weekend soon. Most likely aiming to spend some time at the Museum for Human Rights, but otherwise … what's awesome in Winnipeg? Would we need to rent a car, or is the airport easy to get to from downtown hotels?

Driving the Coquihalla in winter

In two weeks I need to drive from Vancouver to Vernon, I've rented a car, as I don't have all season tires, it's cheaper to rent, plus if a car ends up in a ditch it won't be mine. My question is what site should I check for current road conditions aside from Drive BC? Also, how do I determine whether to go north through Kamloops or South through Kelowna? Who has the best real time updates? [more inside]
