These tips are from our own Neil Armstrong, who lived in Toronto
for many years before joining Robelle.
Traveling to and around Toronto
Don't Arrive During Rush Hour.
Like any big city, Toronto has its share of traffic problems
especially during rush hour. Arriving at the airport during rush hour
will add a significant amount of time to your travel from the
airport to the downtown area. Rush hour is from 6:00-9:00 a.m. and
3:00-6:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
Where to get a really good burger
Every once in awhile I crave a really good
hamburger, and I always think of the Lick's burger chain at
various locations around Toronto. The unique aspect of this place
is that when you place your order, the cooking staff generally
sings a song based on what you have ordered.
Toronto has two of my favourite book stores. The first is Bakka which
is found on Queen Street West. (This is a fun street to just walk down
and watch some of the interesting people!)
This is a used book store that specializes
in Science Fiction, I highly recommend it.
If Science Fiction isn't
your thing, you could always visit the World's Biggest Bookstore
which is two HUGE floors of books and magazines. The store is found
just off Yonge St. (the main street running North/South in the downtown
core) and is one block North of Dundas. When you visit you will see
terminals and PCs behind some counters, which are, interestingly
enough connected to an HP3000.
