Question Canadians do you know if Bracebridge is far from Toronto?

i'm going to canada on holiday with my mum and my sister in august and my mum said we'll be staying with her friend in bracebridge, ontario. i asked her if bracebridge was close to toronto cos i wanted to go to the canadian open but she didn't know. does anyone know if i can take the tube from bracebridge to toronto or perhaps there's a coach that goes to toronto from bracebridge? i really hope i can go cos we're going to be in ontario in august and i'll be terribly disappointed if i can't go to the canadian open.

There should be coaches that go from Bracebridge to Toronto. Try www.greyhound.ca to see more details. You should be able to locate time schedules, as well as the exact points for arrival and departure. Toronto stops are usually at the Greyhound station downtown, or at Yorkville Mall. Yorkville Mall is fairly close to York University where the tournament is, and if you ask around you should be able to catch a local bus from there that will take you to the campus.

"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

I know that Toronto is about 2 hours by car south from Bracebridge. There is surely a coach between them... Besides, there is probably someone who will be abble to give you more info here

Bracebridge is on Lake Muskoka! Beautiful! Take Hwy 11 south from Bracebridge, through Graven hurst and to Orilla where you pick up Hwy 400. Take that into Toronto where you pick up the 401. Head East and get off at York University. The Candian National Tennis Centre is on the grounds of York University. Or, you can take a bus from Bracebridge to Toronto. Take the TTC from Yorkdale Centre to York University.

i found pics and it's so pretty! i can't wait to go! i didn't realise it was a small town. i suppose i thought it would be a big city like toronto but it's actually better cos it has trees, waterfalls and a lake.

Thanks for the pictures. No, it's not a big city like TOronto Toronto is the biggest city in Canada, with only Montreal and Vancouver coming close.

I have question about the Canadian Open for the Canadians. *Why* don't they let *other* cities host it besides Toronto and Montreal? It does *not* seem fair to the *western* provinces. I think they should *rotate* it between the east and the west. Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg and Regina can have it on the *odd* years and Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Halifax and St. John can hold it on the *even* years. What do you think?

Too complicated. It's bad enough that they rotate it between two, we are the only tournament that does that. Rotating it betwee 3 or 4 would be ridiculous. This way, each city knows that they will have a tournament EVERY year (atp or wta) and can market accordingly.

Furthermore, the facilities already exist in these two cities, or new ones are being built.

Rotating them out west, wouldn't be "fair" to people out east. It's a big country, deal with it

Anyhow, I screwed up what i meant to say. You mentioned cities out East, but what I was trying to say is that there would be so many years between holding it out East or out West, or in the middle, it just wouldn't make sense. And what about the folks up north? Won't they feel left out?

Toronto is what 5 hours from Montreal? So the *only* Canadians who *benefit* are Ontario and Quebec residents. *Maybe* they should add a
third city like Calgary *or* Edmonton so the middle *and* western provinces can get their *easier*. Didn't they hold the Pan Am Games in Winnipeg a few years ago? How about Winnipeg?
