Canada’s largest city has a reputation for being nice – good-natured and unpretentious, with a sly sense of humor. There’s some truth to that stereotype, but it’s only half the picture. Toronto is incredibly diverse, a polyglot city where recent immigrants make up nearly half the population.
It bustles with international business, lively neighborhoods and a vibrant arts scene. Dining in Toronto is a revelation. Foodie enclaves like Ossington and Leslieville are red hot, but don’t miss the authentic ethnic eateries of Chinatown, Little India and Greektown.
Check out the expansive view from the CN Tower – or, if you’re truly daring, try Edge Walk, a thrilling, hands-free journey around the outside! Explore the Distillery Historic District, arty Queen Street West or upscale shopping area Bloor-Yorkville. Stroll the boardwalk in the quaint Beaches or hop a ferry to the peaceful, car-free Toronto Islands. Everything is awesome for kids at the Legoland Discovery Centre, while hockey fans can touch the actual Stanley Cup at the Hockey Hall of Fame. Beauty, eh?
