We had to stay overnight in Pearson as our flight to Los Angeles the following day (AC791) departs at 8:00 am. With the US Border pre-clearance in Toronto, I had to make sure we arrive in Pearson by 5:30 am. There are many hotels around Pearson but the 2 most convenient hotels are Sheraton Gateway (at Terminal 3) and ALT Hotel at Viscount Station.

After 2 excellent nights in Boston Intercontinental, we moved on to its counterpart in Toronto. Located within downtown Toronto, Intercontinental is located about 45 to 50 minutes away from Pearson International Airport (via taxi). It cost about CAD $55 (excluding tips) on a cab. Alternatively, one can take the Union Express up to Union Station which is located just next to the hotel.

Canada was fun but a little hectic. 3 nights in 3 different locations:
- Niagara Falls
- Missisauga (Pearson International Airport)
We were quite lucky that the both days we were in Toronto and Niagara Falls, the temperatures were higher than that of Boston! The day we left Toronto for Niagara Falls, Toronto was enveloped in thick fog while for Niagara, it started to rain. Thanks to a clear weather, we had a magnificent 360 degree view of Toronto from CN Tower (where we had our dinner). A sunny noon in Niagara gave us opportunity for photo taking of the falls and the weather held up the following morning to allow us to enjoy Hornblower Cruise. The good weather we had in Niagara allowed us a magnificent view of the falls from our hotel, Sheraton On The Falls. Not long after we left Niagara, it started to rain pretty heavily.

We spent 2 days in Boston which was colder than New York (at about 5 to 9 Celcius) but without any rain. Boston was a completely different city than what New York is. It was more scenic, idyllic and not as intense with less people movement (probably it was a Sunday). Although I was not feeling too well (due to flare up of my Allergic Rhinitis), we had a fun day on the Duck Tour.
