Happy Family Day

This year, instead of celebrating Presidents Day in Cambridge, Alex and I celebrated Family Day in Toronto.

We stayed at the One King West Hotel, we spent some time in Toronto's best museums, and we ate and drank in some interesting Canadian places! It was great little weekend getaway.

Here is a quick review of best places we ate, drank, visited, and saw.

CN Tower
The CN Tower definitely has the best views of the city. At 1,800 feet tall with two observation decks, visitors get 360 aerial views from the downtown area to Niagra Falls.

Greek Town
Greek Town is my favorite Toronto Neighborhood. Cute, lots of wedding shops, and incredible restaurants. It doesn't get any better than saganaki at Pan on Danforth. Opa!

Royal Ontario Museum
The ROM has 40 galleries and over 6 million items on display, including one of the world's most beautiful gem and jewelery collection (what can I say, I'm a girl).

Casa Loma
Casa Loma is a beautiful castle located just inside Toronto's city limits. With 98 rooms to explore, secret passage ways and tunnels, and 5 acres of beautiful estate gardens, Casa Loma is quite the adventure.

Hey Lucy
The food and drinks were so good, we actually went here twice. Hey Lucy has delicious martinis (lychee, a new favorite!), great wine, and mac and cheese with bacon, tomatoes, and green beans. Yum!

The Olympics

Seeing the Olympics Canadian Style was quite the experience. Getting to get to see them win their first gold on home soil was pretty neat.
