Boston, not known for seafood, necessarily, but there's quite a bit of oyster bars.

Toronto also has my favorite Thai restaurant in North America: Mengrai.
Cool! Thanks!

No problem. I'll just keep an eye out for Indian food, I guess

A pity you likely won't be around Toronto at the same time as me.

Go to Greenhouse on Sunday in NYC. Don't go anywhere near Splash.

Going up the CN Tower in Toronto is a must...unless you're afraid of heights.

Hi SW,
When will you be in Toronto? The Film Festival is Sep 6-16. Can be a lot of interesting events at that time.

well, if I were in a city for only 2 days, I wouldn't spend a moment inside a movie theatre, but there might be other interesting film fest activities going on at the time. For sure the nightlife will be more lively than it would be on a regular Monday and Tuesday night. The area around the festival's headquarters has a lot of restaurants and clubs. And there is also the Yorkville neighbourhood, full of posh boutiques and restaurants/cafes. I'm not in the income bracket to be able to really participate, but sometimes it's fun to grab a spot on a coffee shop patio, or even a park bench, and watch the fancy people and expensive cars go by .

Re: US/Canada Trip : Recommendations?

I agree that one day in Philadelphia is enough. It's nice but not amazing and there isn't that much to do there. I love Boston and DC. I think they're much nicer places to visit than NYC and Philly. I'd love to go to Niagara Falls and Canada. Enjoy your trip!

I think that I probably just don't get it, because I grew up two hours from Toronto and have seen the CN Tower about a thousand times, but I don't get it. It's not a terribly beautiful building - it's just tall. I've never been up it, or felt the itch to go.

I also didn't see the point in going to the top of the Empire State Building either, so maybe I just don't care about tall buildings.

Re: US/Canada Trip : Recommendations?

Went to Montreal for the first time this past weekend with some friends. Had a great time. Definitely one of my favorite cities Ive been to. Did touristy stuff during the day and nightlife was a ton of fun at night. Very different than what I thought it would be like, but in a good way. Everyone there is really friendly and just love the French culture.

It was a last minute planned trip. 4 guys, 3 girls and we all had a great time and want to plan another more thought out trip for next summer.
