A relatively new and modern city, Toronto is quickly becoming an important hub of commercial and cultural exchange. Located in the province of Ontario, Toronto is a favorite vacation destination of many cosmopolitan travelers. With so many museums, parks, and restaurants, it’s easy to see why people flock to this city. And the visitors aren’t the only foreigners- nearly half of Toronto’s population is foreign-born, making it one of the most multicultural cities on the globe.

Finding things to do in Toronto is incredibly easy. The CN Tower remains one of the top tourist destinations in this Canadian city, and with its panoramic views of the city it is easy to see why. For all the sports fans out there, the Hockey Hall of Fame is located in Toronto and Maple Leaf games are fanatically popular (just try getting a ticket).

Due to the multicultural nature of the city, food of any kind can be found in Toronto. The St. Lawrence Market is a great place to see and taste the different types of cuisines offered. Or you might want to go right to the source and try some authentic Chinese food in Chinatown or Greek in the Danforth. And after you are down chowing down, the nightlife of Toronto is unparalleled; with numerous ballet companies, operas, and two orchestras, you will need more than a couple of nights to experience it all.

So when you are done booking your flight and hotel in Toronto, take a look at our members’ photos to whet your appetite. Soon you too can be experiencing this Canadian city and all it has to offer.
