  1. Thank you for the info on the ROMwalk at the Grange, Jennifer. As a newcomer to the city, I went on a ROMwalk in Yorkville two weeks ago and it was very well done - I highly recommend it. Everyone should try to go on at least one! Great overview of relevant T.O. museum happenings.

  2. Agreed! And even if you have been in TO for a long time, taking a walking tour adds a layer of history over the everyday knowledge of the city. Not to mention that this is perfect weather for walking tours! And thank you, Jennifer, for the reminder about Casa Loma exhibition!
