Giant Pandas Return to Toronto Zoo

It’s not everyday that you can spot a giant panda at the Toronto Zoo. In fact it’s been 28 years since the last time giant pandas were seen at the largest zoo in Canada—and at that time it was just for a short three-month stay. So you can just imagine the thrill when the Toronto Zoo found it would be the home away home for “Er Shun” and “Da Mao.” This pair of perky pandas arrived in Toronto from China earlier this spring as part of the official Giant Panda Cooperation Agreement, an agreement between China and Canada that will have them splitting the next decade between Toronto and Calgary. read more »

Splish Splash at Splash Pads, Splash Parks & Spray Grounds This Summer!

When I was a child, swimming pools and water fountains were distinct, separate entities. For immersion, you had to find a pool. Whether it was private or public, there were changing rooms and lifeguards and rules. (Unfortunately, the ocean wasn’t an everyday option where I grew up.) Fountains were fun to watch – the water shot all over the place, and sometimes, you could stand in the mist blown your way by a helpful breeze. If you were really lucky – or your accompanying adult looked the other way – you might dip a toe in. read more »

Get a Real Feel for the City on Your Next Trip

Have you ever visited a big city and wondered what it would be like to live there? Being a tourist is a blast, and sure, hotels can be nice, but they do lack some of the comforts of a home – your own gourmet kitchen, private patios, board games and books, toys for the kids, and unique neighborhoods, to name a few. On your next trip, whether it's a weekend getaway or an extended vacation, consider getting a real feel for your destination by staying in a vacation rental. read more »

Follow Toronto's PATH to a Land of Endless Shopping

When the weather outside is frightful, it’s delightful to find a way to get out of the house without spending much time out of doors. Enclosed shopping malls are one option, but can be limiting. Luckily, residents of — and visitors to — Toronto have a BIG additional option: Toronto PATH. Covering 17 miles (28 km), the PATH is a network of pedestrian tunnels beneath the office towers of Downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada. According to Guinness World Records, PATH is the largest underground shopping complex in the world with 371,600 m² (4 million sq. ft.) of retail space. read more »

Stars of the Show: Baby Zoo Animals

What a treat it is to visit a Zoo and get a peek at a newly-arrived baby animal - some so tiny you're lucky to catch a glimpse, others larger than many adult humans, but all of them too cute to resist. Here, we highlight some baby animals that were born in Zoos across the U.S. in 2012. read more »
