|City Hall with Toronto sign|
Part of the reason I wanted to see City Hall was because they had just finished redoing the Toronto sign that sits in Nathan Phillips Square. As it is Canada's 150th birthday they added the Maple Leaf beside the word Toronto so I wanted a couple of pictures of that. It was pretty busy down around City Hall but with all the various conferences and tourists in the city it is not surprising.

It is always fun when you can be a tourist in your own city even if it's only for an hour or so. I hope to be able to spend some more time as a tourist in my own city this summer. I think just being able to do it at various times is wonderful. We hadn't planned on going to City Hall to take pictures so the pictures that I was able to capture were actually taken using my smart phone. Sure I might have been able to capture more detail with my camera but it was nice getting the pictures that I did.
Being a tourist in your own city can be a lot of fun and even those shorts trip can be worth it. Next time you have a free hour look at what you can see in your own city and enjoy it.
