BLOWN AWAY

The Weekend Australian - Travel - - Destination Canada -

IF you’ve vis­ited Toronto and haven’t watched the lo­cal base­ball team, the Blue Jays, at its Rogers Cen­tre home (for­merly the Sky­dome), it could be said you haven’t re­ally vis­ited. A 5km walk from the city cen­tre, the sta­dium is re­mark­able for its bank of 70 Re­nais­sance Toronto Down­town ho­tel rooms built into the arena wall, each of­fer­ing huge win­dow-walls with di­rect views of the games. Rooms start at $C300 ($291) but for $C14 a per­son, you can buy ‘‘nose­bleed’’ seats high in the sta­dium to watch this World Serieswin­ning team in ac­tion. The base­ball sea­son runs from April to Oc­to­ber. More: toronto.bluejays.mlb.com.
