Jane’s Walk 2012: Spacing’s top 20 tours

The annual Jane’s Walk Weekend is just around the corner! On Saturday, May 5th, and Sunday, May 6th, hundreds of free walking tours will take place in cities around the world. Toronto, where Jane lived during the latter half of her life, will be the setting for more walks than any other city; still, several stand out. To find further listings, visit the Jane’s Walk website.
