Toronto Canada

Toronto is the capital city of Ontario. Toronto is also the multicultural, entertainment, financial, and business capital of Canada. In Toronto there lives about 4.5 million people.

In general Toronto is a clean and safe city with a wonderful network of park, recreational, and One of Canada's best kept secrets, Toronto is on par with New York City, San Francisco and Chicago when it comes to cultural attractions and urban sophistication. The best place to start is at the top, and in this city there's no mistaking where that is. The landmark CN Tower is the tallest freestanding structure in the world.

Take the elevator to the top for a breathtaking view of the city, Lake Ontario and more. Right next door at the Rogers™ Centre (formerly the SkyDome) you can catch a Blue Jays baseball game or just walk around the massive engineering marvel. Check out the Royal Ontario Museum, the largest in Canada, with its fascinating archeology and natural history exhibits, and the Art Gallery of Ontario, with a fine collection of European and Canadian works. You won't want to miss the funky stores and ethnic restaurants on Queen Street West or the elegant boutiques and fine restaurants in Yorkville, downtown.

And there's more: Harbourfront is a complex of unique shops and restaurants right on beautiful Lake Ontario. From Harbourfront you can hop on a ferry to the Toronto Islands for a picnic and outdoor recreation. Toronto is especially great as a destination for families as most attractions are child-friendly. The city is clean, safe and easy to explore either on foot or by public transportation.
