This Vintage Ontario Streetcar Takes You Through Enchanting Leafy Trails This Fall

Autumn views are on their way, bringing us stunning colours and gorgeous scenery. It's the time of year where we put on our favourite cozy sweater and embark on scenic hikes to take in the sights of changing leaves. This year, enjoy the fall scenery in a whole new way. Take in the stunning views as you ride this historic railway near Toronto. You'll be swept back in time on this truly magical adventure!

The Halton County Radial Railway, located in Milton, is Ontario's first and largest electric railway. The museum is home to various old fashioned TTC streetcars that you can explore and ride on. Admission includes unlimited trips down a 2-kilometre long scenic railway track to the historic Rockwood station. Hop on board to see some amazing fall leaves and experience a traditional streetcar!

The charming old 1934 streetcar will whisk you away from the quaint station into a colourful nature trail. Of course, no trip is complete without an ice cream stop, and this streetcar has you covered. You'll stop for a tasty treat at the railway's secret ice cream shop, which is hidden inside an old streetcar. 

You can explore the display barns and grounds, and take a peek inside the gift shop, which sells railway-themed trinkets and delicious treats. You might find yourself hopping back on the streetcar for another ride (and maybe another ice cream cone) before the day is done.

An 11 foot, 1,264 pound shark named Maple was tagged off Nova Scotia's coast on September 14.

There must be something in the water on the east coast because a lot of great white sharks are in Nova Scotia right now and some of them are so huge!

Ocearch, a non-profit shark research organization, is on an expedition in the waters off Nova Scotia until September 30 to learn more about the sharks that spend their summers and falls in Canadian waters.

Paul Rudd Once Tried To Get His Own 'Friends' Spin-Off But No One From The Show Was Into It

"I thought it'd just be about me, called Friend," Rudd told Conan O'Brien.

If you've already binged the Friends reunion special eight or nine times and you've desperate for more content, you might be devastated to hear that in another universe you might've been watching a spin-off starring Paul Rudd.

Rudd, who of course played Phoebe's partner and husband Mike Hannigan, told Conan back in February 2004 (shortly before the series finale) that he'd pitched his own series but he got rejected.
