Trip Report - Markham with Day Visits to Toronto

This is a long overdue report on our trip to Markham and Toronto last summer.

We spent a week in Markham at the Hilton Suites Toronto Markham and after much deliberation, decided to rent a car to take in the nearby sites. On one of the evenings we took a leisurely stroll through Unionville and enjoyed ice cream and chocolates from The Old Firehall Confectionery. We also ate at Milestones located in a plaza within walking distance from the hotel. Enjoyed the food and the service.

We drove into Toronto twice to visit the Riverdale farm, Casa Loma, the Ontario Science Center (day 1) and Center Island (day 2). Our children enjoyed the farm, but were quickly bored with Casa Loma. Center Island was the highlight of their trip, and to our delight it was open on Canada Day and not crowded! They also enjoyed the Ontario Science Center.

A visit to the Toronto Zoo was our last excursion and in hind sight, it should have been our first. We were all tired from the previous days and didn't give the zoo the time it deserved. Never-the-less, we enjoyed it.

Thanks again to those who helped us with our planning for the trip! It was one of the most active vacations we've taken in a while.
