    While many say Montreal is Canada's best city I've always preferred Toronto. Ethnically diverse with lots of fun restaurants and bars. Downtown, Yorkville, the Waterfront lots to do.

    Nice City to visit. Don't expect to much, averything is expensive. In the otherhand, it's multicultural city. Much fun in the Pubs.

    Toronto is definitely a city for young singles. Families should stay in one of the adjacent suburbs which are large cities in their own right with Mississauga having a population over 750,000. Toronto is still growing and is currently undergoing a construction boom with a skyscraper going up every where you look. Just spot all the cranes dotting the skyline. Another issue is there is way too much green and blue glass everywhere you look....it dulls the view. Toronto would be a smaller comparison to Chicago without the great park system or great restaurants but its making its way in the right direction. There are a lot of shopping options with everything from small mom n pop locations to big chains but they can often be hidden inside large office buildings in inconspicuous shopping centers. The NHL Hall of Fame even falls under this. The outer shell is tied to an office building with a large under ground food court feeding multiple buildings which surround it. One bonus is there are tons of restaurants everywhere you turn which have some decent food. There are also a few very nice Markets which offer fresh fruits, cheeses, and meats in the heart of this major city on the lake.

    Phenomenal city. I live, work, and play and there is always something to do.

    If you're a foodie, there are a bagillion choices. Toronto isn't a melting pot of ethnicities for nothing. Caribbean, European, African, Middle Eastern. Asian all converge to offer foodies a gastronomical experience.

    A thriving LGBT community. The annual PRIDE festival, a weekend of celebrating who you are and loving life.

    Maybe you're a shopaholic - Eaton Center, Sherway Gardens, Chinatown, Pacific Mall, Square 1, for those of you with money to burn, the exclusive shops of Hazelton Lanes, and countless other places for you to spend, spend, spend.

    If you're a parent, theatre-buff, thrill seeker, spa maven, or just an avid partygoer, you will find it all in Toronto, and then some.

    I hope you have a great time if you're living or visiting.

    Cheers!

    What an amazing city filled with great food, diverse people and friendly culture! I had so much fun visiting the neighborhoods and eating my way around this city. We also had views of the CN tower most of the time we were in the city.

    Toronto is a lively and diverse city with the hustle and bustle of a large city and the pleasantness of a smaller city. There is a great mix of cultures here which makes for some deliciously eclectic dining. There is not too many attractions for tourists to see but all around Toronto has a little bit of something for everyone.

    View of the CN Tower in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is the tallest free standing structure in North America. I highly recommend a visit.

    If you're an urban maven, you can't help but love Toronto for its eclectic neighborhoods, historical spots, museums and inventive cuisine. An indie arts scene and boutique shopping are also pluses, and so are all the great brewpubs and bars. Don't miss taking the ferry over to Toronto Island, where you can rent a bicycle and pedal around for city skyline views during summer. Underground pedestrian tunnels let you scurry around, safely away from the bitterly cold weather in winter.

    Toronto is a nice city with lots to do but try to come during the spring or summer because it is freezing during the winter. I experienced -23 F degree weather.

    It's a big and busy city of Canada. It is very much the financial city of Canada. There is not much tourist things to do, but a very nice place to explore.

    Toronto is one of my favorite cities in Canada. Located on Ontario Lake, it's big and beautiful without being overwhelming or ostentatious. There are tons of cultural outlets--theater, music halls, museums, dance companies, opera, symphonies, film festivals--as well as professional sports, great restaurants, bars and nightlife, boutique and bargain shopping and plenty of green spaces too. All that, plus it's one of the most racially and culturally diverse cities in the country. Honestly, if it weren't so cold in the winter, it would be on my short list of places to live.

    Toronto is a nice city, though not a real favorite of mine. I always feel like it's a toned down version of New York, somehow. There are some great museums, however, and lovely architecture.

    Beautiful clean and modern city. Much like a New York City. Was there for a convention years ago and really enjoyed it. Saw a Maple Leafs game and experience Canadien hockey for the first time.

    Toronto is fun and modern, with a vibrant downtown and incredibly diverse neighborhoods to explore. The path system that connects most of the downtown area is great, especially in winter. No need to go above ground! Canadians lived up to their reputation as nice- strangers wished me a nice day and when my husband dropped his scarf, not only was it right where he left it several hours later, but someone had actually taken the time to pick it up and fold it!

    There's more than meets the eye in Canada's biggest city. Many compare it to NYC or Chicago - don't bother doing this, as Toronto has a vibe all it's own. Admittedly downtown is a bit bland - so head to Toronto's more village-like areas like Parkdale, Leslieville or Roncesvalles to experience what makes this multi-cultural city wonderful.

Description

Toronto is Canada's most cosmopolitan city -- a thriving multi-cultural center filled with skyscraper banks, corporate headquarters and a world-renowned arts and entertainment industry. With so much to do in a small space, visitors can explore much of the city on foot. Wander through the historical Distillery District's refurbished brick warehouses, now home to restaurants, galleries and shops. Get a panoramic view of the city from the imposing CN Tower. Manolo fans will want to check out the unique Bata Shoe Museum, where you'll find the socks of Napoleon Bonaparte. With dozens of farmer’s markets, cultural fairs and the Toronto International Film Festival, tourists are invited to blend in and enjoy Toronto's joie de vivre lifestyle. The huge ethnic diversity of Toronto (locals speak over 100 languages here) led to development of vibrant culture centers such as a massive Chinatown, and the ubiquitous supply of ethnic restaurants have led to Toronto's reputation as a city for foodies.
