At 9:30 AM, after completing our early morning visit to Ottawa’s Parliament Hill, we checked out of our hotel in Ottawa and hit the road. We had a 5 hour drive to Toronto, Ontario where we’d check in at a hotel in mid-afternoon and see the Oakland A’s play the Toronto Blue Jays in the evening.

Our original plan for today’s drive called for a 60 to 90 minute sightseeing stop in Kingston, Ontario. Kingston is near the halfway point between Ottawa and Toronto. However, we adjusted our plans for this day to allow for our early morning sightseeing at Ottawa’s Parliament Hill. As a result, we scratched our stop in Kingston and we proceeded directly to Toronto.

We arrived at our hotel in Toronto at approximately 3:30 PM. Our hotel, the Toronto Renaissance, is located at Rogers Centre where the Blue Jays play their home games.
