We stopped by the Kiosk a couple of times for suggestions and brochures. The attendants were very helpful and the information available was worth the stop.

Hands down the best tourist information booth I have been to anywhere. Well stocked with brochures, maps and knowledgable staff that enjoy helping you. And free washrooms to boot - cannot be beat on Canada Day or any big event downtown.
