Hockey is Canada's official winter sport (lacrosse, a game invented by the indigenous peoples, is our summer national sport), so it would be a shame if anyone visited Canada's largest city and didn't see the official temple of hockey fame. In fact, the Hockey Hall of Fame has quite a few good exhibits to explain the game to the uninitiated, as well as a lot of fun ones for those who aren't too interested in hockey or sports in general. There is a lot of trivia on display for hockey buffs, as well as interactive displays for those looking to try their hand at being a goalie or being on ice, etc. This attraction is incredibly easy to get to, as it is only steps from Union Station, in the heart of the financial district, and on the way to the St. Lawrence Market district. I'm not much of a hockey fan, but I still had quite a bit of fun at the Hockey Hall of Fame when I went.
