Those of us residing in tourist areas generally take for granted all the sights to explore and rarely go, except when shepherding visitors around. I live in the suburbs of one of the greatest cities in the world, namely Toronto, Canada’s largest metropolis [fourth largest in North America, behind New York, Los Angeles and Chicago]. Toronto has been named “best place to live” in an index of city rankings compiled by The Economist. [More points of interest HERE.] We go there for concerts, museum exhibits and sometimes shopping and dining, but sightseeing? Not in years! For the recent occasion of my 60th birthday, we had tickets for a Bob Seger concert [photos and music HERE], and, since it was on a Saturday night, decided to stay the weekend. Although it was cold, there was no snow on the ground and the winds held off, for a change. Ideal for a stroll through the area on a lazy Sunday. [Image from Wikimedia Commons]
