We took a quick trip to Canada last week, mainly to see the Red Sox play in Toronto. It’s a stadium we have always wanted to see in person. But to get to Toronto, we had to go through Niagara Falls (slowly as I turn…) and see some sights along the way.
First up, the beautiful and awe-inspiring falls. One side American, one side Canadian. Both sides amazing.

It’s known that the American side is more “state park” like, and the Canadian side caters to tourists. Yes, we can confirm this with photographic proof…
"I eat tourists." Canadian side for Dinos, mini golf, a ferris wheel and so much more.
Before we took in the Red Sox game, there was a tall building to leap in a single bound. Well, at 147 stories, we decided to take the elevator instead. The CN Tower certainly is a sight to behold.
Afraid of heights? Then skip this part of Toronto! The CN Tower is 147 stories tall. Check out the view of the city from the 114th floor.
And how about those Red Sox? Rogers Stadium is a great ball park. We went to the Tuesday game… and our team lost. We had a couple of wonderful locals sitting next to us. They lived up to the Canadian stereotype of extreme politeness. They apologized to us for booing the Red Sox. The said they were booing the Red Sox with the utmost respect.
Then, all of a sudden, onto the field sprints what they never show on TV. The streaker! He actually kept his sneakers and black speedo on, so he wasn’t a “true” streaker. He had YOLO painted on his chest, although I am pretty sure it doesn’t count as YOLO if you need to get bailed out. Ok, enough idle chit chat- you want photos, right?
Even having bought cheap seats, we still had a fairly good view of the so-called streaker. You'll never see this televised as it happens because the TV stations always agree to not show these kinds of shenanigans, as it would just encourage others. The look Youk is giving the situation is priceless.
It was a whirlwind 3 day trip, chock full of fun. Let us know your favorite major league park, as we like to visit a new park each year.
