Phoenix Art Museum

Located in the capital of Arizona, the Phoenix Art Museum is the southwest US’ largest art museum. Established in 1959, the museum is home to historical, contemporary, modern, cultural and more different types of art. It displays over 19,000 pieces, from dozens of countries throughout the world. The Phoenix Art Museum is home to a permanent collection as well as a rotating calendar of unique exhibits that are only open for a few months of the year. In this post I’ll be writing an overall guide to this museum, with info on pretty everything you’d need to know about it before visiting.

Neighbourhood Guide: Toronto’s Chinatown

One of the largest of its kind outside of Asia, Toronto’s Chinatown is a vibrant neighbourhood consisting of dozens of Chinese and East Asian restaurants and businesses. From delicious Peking duck to beautiful Coconut buns, there’s tons to be discovered in this neighbourhood.

As I’m half Chinese, Chinatown is one of my favourite spots in the city as well as a place I’m often at, so I thought it’d be fun to write a neighbourhood guide about it, which is what this post is!

Best Skyline Views in Toronto

The most popular photo of virtually any city is one of its skyline, and it’s easy to see why. With stunning skyscrapers creating dimension within the shot, dozens of different shades of colour making for interesting details, and the stories behind each and every building showing the character of the metropolis, there are many reasons why this is true. Whether I’m in a city I’ve visited many time before, or if I’m in a completely new city I’ve never been, I always most enjoy photographing that city’s skyline. So, I decided to start a new series here on my blog, where I show you the best places to go in a certain city to get those perfect skyline shots. To start off my series I thought I’d first write about Toronto, a city I know very well. I used to live just outside of Toronto, I plan to live there after I finish high school, and I go back to visit quite often (hence why I have so many posts here on my blog about the city!), so this post was practically written by a local!

Toronto’s Hockey Hall of Fame

The Hockey Hall of Fame, located in downtown Toronto’s Brookfield Place, is the ultimate hockey museum and hall of fame. Established in 1943, the HHOF began in Kingston, Ontario and later moved to the province’s capital, Toronto.  It is home to tons of hockey/NHL memorabilia, most famously the Stanley cup itself! I visited the Hockey Hall of Fame last month with my uncle, and in this post I’ll be writing all about the famous attraction.
