365 Canadian Sights | Day 52: National Music Centre

While it says studio bell on the outside, I’m calling this the National Music Centre, because that’s whose home it is, and the naming rights for the building, completed in 2016, are up again in 8 or so years. 330 more words

365 Canadian Sights | Day 51: Aga Khan Museum

Located a little ways from downtown Toronto, the Aga Khan Museum might be bight of an unexpected sight in the middle of North York. It’s a pretty new building (completed in 2014) and the bright white exterior with unique angles is visible from a major motorway in Toronto (Don Valley Parkway) so yeah, it’s a bit of a stand out. 345 more words

365 Canadian Sights | Day 42: Fortress of Louisbourg

For this project I’ve been shying away from live actors, non-specific sights and places known more for their historic nature than the special view, but all of that is being tossed out for Louisbourg. 340 more words

365 Canadian Sights | Day 81: The Vulcan Tourism Information Centre

In the middle of southern Alberta, solid farm country, you might not expect to find one of Canada’s most famous sci-fi sights, but, well, then there’s Vulcan (and also, I mean, there aren’t really sci-fi sights anywhere in Canada, so ‘most famous’ is a limited list). 321 more words
