Trip to Canada / US

Hey guys, Iím 19 and from Scotland and I plan to visit family in Toronto with my uncle. Heís flying to New York after a week in Toronto. Iíd ideally want to spend 3 weeks or so there, but Iím not sure if I should keep my trip in Canada, or go to New York / other states. I have a contact in Vancouver as well, so thatís a possibility. Anyone have any recommendations of what to see / how to spend my trip? I donít know much about that part of the world really. I'd like quite a variety of experiences and sites. Thanks!

If you come to Toronto, go to Madison's on a Thursday night. The bar will full of inebriated university women that will probably sleep with you as soon as they hear the sound of your 'British' accent. I mean British in that they won't know the difference.

Anything to check out near / in Toronto? Anywhere near NY that's relatively close to check out?

The drinking option sounds good! I thought it was 21 in most of North America. The girl part also sounds nice if I could pull that off...

The Eaton Centre. It's a mall.
I wouldn't say there are any special landmarks in Toronto besides the CN Tower. You have the usual museums, shops, and stuff.
There's me, but I have school and work.

Alberta bad lands are nice. You can check out the West Edmonton Mall while you're in the province, if you're going from ONT to BC.

why not make the most of your trip while you're there? i say definately go to new york if given the chance. unless you really like where you'll be staying, and don't feel the need (curiosity) to go somewhere else.

New York could be interesting, maybe spend 4-5 days there? I'm thinking of where I can travel to from there though...I really have no clue.

21 is drinking age only in the united states. Everywhere else, especially Canada is fair game for you.

Go to New York City if you're going to New York. It's the only thing worth seeing in that state honestly.

There's enough to see in the city without worrying about finding other stuff to see nearby.

Nah, Toronto is going to be fine for the next week or so.
Maybe November will be chilly. TS is from Scotland and I imagine it's real rainy and cool there compared to Toronto.
