See and do
Toronto is the definition of a modern, eclectic city, with one in two inhabitants having been born elsewhere in the world. This rich multiculturalism, combined with the influence of New York State just across Lake Ontario, has given Toronto a fascinating patchwork of identities. As a result, you’re unlikely to find a city more open-minded and unpretentious, while offering such varied entertainment and rich experiences.
Toronto’s restaurants are as diverse as its population, and you’ll find food from every corner of the world. Shopping is equally exciting, from the high-end Bloor St. in Yorkville, to the grungier Queen St. area, with its younger crowds, lower budget shops and great souvenirs. For a piece of Toronto to take home, try some of the specialty teas, a Toronto skyline print, some real maple syrup, or a University of Toronto shirt.
Of course, you’ll find all the usual first-world museums and galleries in Toronto, but there’s plenty more to see here too. Don’t miss the Distillery District, the Lakefront and Harbourfront, the Toronto Islands, and the various ethnic enclaves showcasing the cultures who have made Toronto their home. You’ll also want to be sure to catch a comedy show at Second City, a theatrical performance on Yonge Street, and the Toronto Symphony at the Roy Thomson Hall.
Public transport in Toronto is easy, safe and reasonably affordable. The network consists of bus, streetcar, subway, and ferry. There are several daily, weekly and monthly passes available, so look into your options to save a few bucks.
