    My wife and I are planning on visiting your fine country this March. We were planning on heading to Toronto, but now it looks like our easiest bet would be Winnipeg. Is Winnipeg worth the trip, or should we check out some other place(s)? All ideas and comments are appreciated.
    your friend,

    Canada is nice in general but Winnipeg is cold and flat with nice people who drink to stay warm. Torono is alright, hot girls, clubs, big city. Now Montreal, that's the town. I guess it really depends on what you want from Canada.

    I want a nice trip, that's all. We were thinking Winnipeg because it would be a bit less of a drive, but from the sound of it perhaps it's worth the drive to Toronto. I'll have to break out the map and see about Montreal, though. I don't think I checked up on that one. What sorts of things could we expect to find in said cities that may be of interest?

    ahhh... 12oz tour guides

    forget winnipeg.
    There's nothing there worth seing.

    Vancover - weather will be nice and it's a beautiful city with tons of things to do.

    Toronto - the big city that has all the action. It's so newyork that Mya's last video was shot here without even trying to hide the fact it's canadian.

    Montreal - it's like europe but in northamerica. Definately a foriegn experience.

    hit my email if you want details about anything

    i agree with the above sentiments. you're going to drown in boredom if you visit winnipeg, especially in march. if you're looking for something midwest try calgary--at least they have some mountains you can enjoy.

    toronto in march is kind of a crap shoot. the weather here is really finicky, so it could be -25 when you show up or a balmy 15 degrees. what do you want to see? we've got loads of typical tourist shit if youre down with that. they're are lots of clubs that pump gino beats, clubs for indie rock scenesters, regular joe schmoo sports bars.....the whole spectrum. people here can be stuck up but the majority are pretty friendly. lots of shopping if you guys are big into buying crap. there are things to do you just have to look.

    montreal is about the same except they have better graf,girls,bars,architecture,people,and food.

    just don't go to winnipeg.

    Neither of us is into the club scene at all. We do both enjoy improv/comedy clubs, though. Small bars are cool, and we could both handle an indie rock show or something. She's about the shopping, but I doubt we'll really have much money to drop. I guess it will still be pretty cold in March?

    march can be hit or miss for the weather.

    if comedy is your thing there's tons of it in montreal
    but there's also some good stuff in Toronto. As for indy rock,
    toronto is THE place to be. Plus there's tons of galleries and
    other 'less-than-tourist' things to do.

    check raven's 'city guides' thread for some info I put up about Toronto.

    comedy clubs in toronto are pretty good albeit expensive. 15-30 bucks a pop most weekends.

    like i said, the weather here is unpredictable. during the first week of january the temp was hovering around 5-10 degrees some days. a week later we got smacked with a horrible cold snap that had the temp around -35 with the windchill. i recommend you postpone the trip until mid may or early june. that's the best time temperature wise. comforatable t-shirt weather without the nasty muggyness of july or august. toronto is pretty dope once it warms up. and like kilo said, toronto is the darling of indierock at the moment.

    yeah, kilo. i've been in T.O for several years now.

    says you!

    I knew a guy from Acton and let me tell you.... it's NOT worth the drive!

    and if you seethis, turn around and head the other way.


    and for comedy... there's the Alt.Comedy lounge at the Riv every monday, and its cheap.
