The Tivoli Theatre
Address: 108 James St. N, Hamilton, Ontario

Hockey Hall Of Fame
Price: $20 admission
Address: 30 Yonge St., Toronto, Ontario
Why You Need To Go: Way back in the early 1950s before it became the Hockey Hall of Fame, this building used to be a Bank of Montreal.

Some visitors say they've seen a woman with long, dark hair wandering the halls, while others claim to have heard her sobbing. Further accounts of footsteps and flickering lights have been enough to spook visitors throughout the years.
