My wife wants for us to take a road trip in the fall and it's either going to be Toronto or New Hampshire up towards Maine. Has anyone been up there at that time of year and if so, what are some fun things for a family with a 4 year old to do.

Lived (was stationed) in Winter Harbor, ME. Absolutely loved it there. The Acadia National Forest is beautiful during the Fall. I would have considered living in Maine if there were jobs. You can stay in a lighthouse. A lot of mom & pop diners and eateries specializing in seafood.

New Hampshire has FunSpot. It's a giant gaming arcade/playspot. The third floor is a museum where you can play tons of 70s and 80s stuff.

Lots to do in Toronto.  If you go through NH or VT montshire children's museum on the VT NH border was a huge hit with my daughter, as was Santa's Village in Jeffersonville

Toronto:

- Take the kid up the CN Tower

- Take the ferry across to the islands, go to Centre Island if you go early enough in the fall there's a really small low key amusement park

- Hockey Hall of Fame, lots of interactive stuff

- Science Center...massive complex with tons of crap for kids to do

- Royal Ontario Museum, same thing, Big Dinosaur section.

Lol...that post made me think of being in Hogtown about 13/14 years ago drunked up going to a Jays game....I told George Strompolopolous (However you spell that name) to go fuck himself when he was doing a live remote for 'MuchMusic' out on Queen Street...I walked in front of the camera and pushed one of the band members around a bit jokingly....The guys in the band laughed about it, but Strombo gave me a dirty look.....I was happy when he got booted from 'Hockey Night In Canada'...Fuck him....HaHaha

I grew up in Maine and went to the University of Maine. Moved away when I was 27. If you like the coast Acadia National Park is tough to beat. Lots of opportunities on the coast from NH to Bar Harbor. Like to hike in the woods? Baxter State Park and Mount Katahdin are great for that. Looking at the Fall foliage head to Western Maine to Jackman or Moosehead Lake. Keep going and you're in Quebec before you know it.

Thanks for all of the suggestions. I had the Wifey check everything out so we can plan out a schedule, sorta, when we go in late Oct/early Nov.

Sorry I just saw this response.  Yes, a true Black Bear with a degree and a couple of letters for Golf from Maine.As for the Maine hockey team, I was the first color commentary for TV coverage 1980-1982.  We aired on MPBN TV right after the game on a tape delay.  Gary Thorn was doing radio for them at the time.  He was really good back then too.  Maine didn't have a team until 1978.  4 years later they were ranked 4th int he country and later of course a few national titles
