Things to do

Niagara Falls: Take in the view from the top—the Table Rock site allows you to stand barely a meter from the edge of Horseshoe Falls—or get sweaty on one of the 300 km’s of bike trails and self-guided cycling tours.

Backyard Axe Throwing League: Learn to throw an axe with the Backyard Axe Throwing League, where you and your friends can enter a group tournament to see who has the chops to triumph.  .

The Original Haunted Walk of Toronto: This macabre walking tour is also a great way to acquaint yourself with the place’s nooks and crannies. A cloaked tour guide carrying a lantern will lead you to Toronto’s spookiest spots, including haunted theatres and the Mackenzie House, supposedly one of the city’s most active paranormal sites.
