Toronto, Canada

Toronto skyline with CN towerToronto is the capital city of Ontario province and considered the largest city in Canada with a population approaching 5.6 million. If you count the whole urban area around Toronto then the population increases to 6.5 million. 

What distinguishes Toronto from other major urban centers is its multicultural vibe. Everywhere you go you will come across people from all over the world coexisting in peace and harmony. 

Fisherman's Wharf 

nullAs you walk west from Pier-39 you will start seeing bike rental shops, gift shops and several fleets of cruise ships. Keep going until you see the famous seafood street vendors where you can get your fill of fresh crab sandwiches or clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl. If you like your dining a little fancier, check out the restaurants right on the docks. 

Pier 39 - San Francisco

nullPier-39 is a must-see attraction in the city of San Francisco. The pier is a nice walk on the waterfront with many shops, restaurants and attractions.  

You can just walk around through the main walkway and enjoy the bustling activity or you can stroll along the outside pathways with a great view of the bay, Alcatraz and passing cruise ships. 

Deeper into the pier, you can get the “7D Experience" - a roller-coaster, 3D movie, laser tag experience all-in-one.

Seattle by Segway

Segways are a great way to discover a new town. You can rent a Segway and go on your own, but it is always better to learn from an expert.

I recently went on a tour with “Seattle by Segway” through the waterfront, Seattle Center, Pike Place and other downtown landmarks.

Seattle, Washington

The sprawling Seattle metropolitan area is surrounded by water, mountains and lakes in the Pacific state of Washington - and home to a lot of history and culture.

From the iconic Space Needle tower to the historic Pike Place market and from the waterfront restaurants to Mount Rainier covered with snow, everywhere you look there is something new to see or adventures to be had.

A visit to Seattle would not be complete without exploring downtown on foot, riding the Monorail, spinning around on the Great Wheel, dining at the waterfront or finding unique gifts at Pike Place Market.
