In 1993, the HOCKEY HALL OF FAME (HHOF) opened the doors of its current home on Yonge Street, in the magnificently restored Bank of Montreal building. The HHOF quickly established a reputation as a world-class sports and entertainment facility and one of Toronto's prime tourist attractions.
The highlight of any visit to HHOF is the MCI Great Hall. The core sanctuary holds portraits and biographical sketches of each honoured member of the Hockey Hall of fame, including such greats as Mike Bossy, Bobby Clarke, Paul Coffey, Alex Delvecchio, Ken Dryden, Phil and Tony Esposito, Grant Fuhr, Wayne Gretzky, Tim Horton, Gordie Howe, Bobby Hull, Guy Lafleur, Mario Lemieux, Ted Lindsay, Frank Mahovlich, Stan Mikita, Bobby Orr, Pocket Rocket Richard, Larry Robinson, Terry Sawchuk and so many more.

Toronto Island Park
Why not "discover" the TORONTO ISLANDS. I was absolutely blown away with the Island paradise, in the shadows of the great city of Toronto. We - Hans and I, Berni and Carl - took the Ferry here and enjoyed a wonderful autumn day on Centre Island. As it was near the end of the season, most things were closed already, but it was still a wonderful day to walk around and enjoy the surroundings as did many others.
Toronto Islands are a chain of small islands consisting of: Mugg's Island, Forestry Island, Olympic Island, Snake Island, Algonquin Island, Ward's Island and the biggest one, Centre Island.

Throughout the city, visitors will have a rere opportunity to explore interior spaces often not open to the public. Among the highlights of this year's Doors Open is the exquisite new home of Canada's National Ballet School and the recently opened Young Centre for the Performing Arts.
A complete list of participating buildings will be available on the Doors Open Web Site in April.
PS.I just put a picture of the CN Tower as it is such a recognizable symbol of Toronto. I don't think you will get in here for free.
