I need a break. Difficulty Level: 6 year old and Dog Highway-Phobic

I'm in Toronto. I really want to go away this weekend. I have a 6 year old and a dog. Where can we go? Oh, and I'm scared of driving on highways if we're anywhere near Toronto (like two lanes of divided highway with no traffic, fine...but traffic or way, no how). My son's passport is expired. We do not have camping equipment here (we own some, but not a tent and it's stored at my friend's house and she's out of town). Is there somewhere my kid, my dog, and I could go? I can drive for maybe 2 hours. [more inside]

Toronto Tourism

I’ll be spending Veteran’s Day weekend in Toronto visiting my undergrad son — what’s fun touristy Toronto stuff? Is the CN Tower a reasonably entertaining experience, or are the lines and so on too long? This time of year, will the islands be worth going to? Assuming that we are willing to walk any distance imaginable, what would you do for fun in Toronto?

Visiting Toronto, this time in November

Me, my spouse, and our kiddo, all Chicagoland-based, will be spending the Thanksgiving break in Toronto visiting our favorite cousins and their bouncing preschooler. We will have some chances to peel off and do things solo and we may all go out together a few times as well. Difficulty level: we've been there four or five times already, so a lot of the classic Toronto tourist stuff is long-since checked off our list. Outside of our regular trip to St. Laurence Market, the goal is to see new stuff. [more inside]

I understand they will be this far south tonight, but light pollution there anywhere I can drive within say 3 hours of Toronto check into a motel for one night and see the northern lights and drive home tomorrow?

Recommendations for affordable places to stay in Toronto?

So I want to stay in Toronto from December 23rd to January 1st. The cheapest I've found is about $900 CAD. I can afford it but I would prefer to pay less. I really don't want to stay in Kingston (where I live) this Christmas. I did it last year and it was quite frankly depressing. [more inside]

How should I go about planning my arrival to Canada?

So, I'm finally arriving into Canada on August 8th. Fortunately, the government has announced that if you're fully vaccinated you don't have to do quarantine. However, it's not that simple and it is the border officer that will determine this based on whether you meet certain requirements. [more inside]
