2013 West End Mural Tours !

Life on Langside mural

Later this week I 'm taking a West End Mural Tour ! You might remember that in 2009 they were chosen by Where magazine as one of Canada's top outdoor summer attractions.

There are two separate two-hour tours that take place Monday to Saturday. Start times are flexible for the morning, afternoon or evening. The cost is $5.00 for adults, $2.00 for kids and that includes a refreshment at a West End restaurant !

Ellice Avenue Icelandic Mural
India Palace

Each year a couple more murals get added to the neighborhood - there are now more than 50.  One of the newer additions I noticed this summer is Ghandi at India Palace and there's at least one other that I have seen in the works.

The tours are a great way to learn about local history and heroes and to explore at a walking pace the wide range of architecture and 100 or so restaurants found in the area. 

The tours go until the end of August so check be sure to check them out soon ! More details can be had at the West End Biz website.
