Yonge & Dundas

One of the reasons we decided to go to Toronto is that we scored a great hotel deal. Bond Place Hotel, located a two minutes’ walk from Dundas Square, had been under renovation and the price of the rooms was much lower than usual for this kind of location. Lucky us—by the time we arrived, the rooms had been renovated, only the lobby was a bit messy.

Dundas Square is at the intersection of busy Yonge Street and Dundas Street. It’s famous for hosting public events. The square is surrounded on all sides by gigantic commercial billboards, which is fairly unique (and controversial) in Canada.

Yonge Street is said to be the longest street in the world, and is frequently considered to be Toronto’s main street. It is home to the Eaton Centre, the Hockey Hall of Fame, the Canon Theatre, the offices of the Toronto Star newspaper and many more local landmarks.

As you can see, there was no snow at all in Toronto before New Year. This was a big surprise for us because the snow banks are pretty tall in Ottawa, only 400 kilometres away!
