TorontoCanada

Canada’s most populated city is a diverse cultural destination with world-class museums, concerts, family entertainment, sports venues and craft beers.

Visit a museum, taste aromatic craft beers, enjoy a festival, check out the music scene or explore Lake Ontario and the Toronto Islands in this pleasant Canadian city.

Toronto has always been an international destination of choice. Settled by the British in the 18th century, it has attracted immigrants for years. Today, almost three million people represent 200 ethnic groups and speak over 130 languages and dialects. Experience the city’s multicultural diversity in the neighborhoods of Chinatown Toronto, Greektown, Kensington Market and Little Italy Toronto.

Many attractions are within reach of Toronto’s well-connected public transportation system. If you’d rather walk, follow the PATH Underground Shopping Mall: 17 miles (28 kilometers) of subterranean walkways and retail outlets in and around downtown Toronto.

Visit heritage buildings and cultural exhibits at Yorkville and the Distillery District. Relax in High Park and the Toronto Botanical Garden or dare walking the 1,168-feet (356-meters) high EdgeWalk around the outside of the CN Tower. Watch baseball and football matches at the Rogers Centre and take a photo with the Stanley Cup at the Hockey Hall of Fame.

Enter the architecturally remarkable Royal Ontario Museum, Casa Loma and Art Gallery of Ontario to view local artifacts and international art. Browse the fashion stores at Toronto Eaton Centre or shop for fresh produce and curiosa at St. Lawrence Market. Toronto Zoo and Canada’s Wonderland are great for family days out.

Toronto’s winters are usually very cold and summers can sometimes be hot. Year-round, the Harbourfront Centre hosts cultural events, including the SING! Toronto Vocal Arts Festival and a Caribbean Carnival.

Make the 90-minute trip to Niagara Falls or travel along Yonge Street, one of the world’s longest roads, which stretches from Lake Ontario though the Canadian wilderness to Lake Simcoe.

Each year, 21 million people visit the city. Toronto’s International Airport receives direct flights from many countries. The city’s setting on Lake Ontario, one of the Great Lakes, combined with its diverse culture, explains why Toronto is so popular.
