Toronto, the New York City of Canada

Written by Clint Leung

Toronto, my city of birth, isrepparttar largest city in Canada with a population of about 3 million (5 million inrepparttar 141378 greater area) and it keeps growing every year as it seems to berepparttar 141379 first city of choice for immigrants from aroundrepparttar 141380 world. With over 100 languages spoken here, Toronto isrepparttar 141381 most multicultural city inrepparttar 141382 world according torepparttar 141383 United Nations. This is actually a good thing since Toronto can be a model forrepparttar 141384 rest ofrepparttar 141385 world in regards to showing how it is possible for different people of many different cultures and faiths to get along peacefully. Friends of different racial backgrounds and religions can be found here where they would probably be enemies in other parts ofrepparttar 141386 world.

Having lived in Toronto for most of my life so far, I’m always amazed on howrepparttar 141387 city has grown as a tourist destination. Torontonians seem to take world class attractions likerepparttar 141388 CN Tower andrepparttar 141389 Skydome for granted since many see it every day during their commute. Of course,repparttar 141390 CN Tower is a very worthwhile visit as a ride torepparttar 141391 top is a must for every visitor.

Toronto has one ofrepparttar 141392 best redeveloped harbourfronts anywhere. This area has boutiques at Queen’s Quay, restaurants, cafes and galleries. Nearby Ontario Place and repparttar 141393 Canadian National Exhibition are annual favorites among locals. This is also where one takesrepparttar 141394 ferries across torepparttar 141395 Toronto Islands. The islands are all connected via bike paths and offer a unique view ofrepparttar 141396 Toronto cityscape as well as a nice break fromrepparttar 141397 busy downtown. Located onrepparttar 141398 main island, Centreville is a petting zoo and small amusement park for kids.

The action is downtown and probably where most tourists should stay. Althoughrepparttar 141399 hotels prices are higher in downtown thanrepparttar 141400 suburbs, Toronto traffic is unfortunately not getting any better so it is best to stay where commuting is kept at a minimum. There is a very efficient transit system for those who want to stay outside ofrepparttar 141401 downtown area though. A walk along Yonge Street nearrepparttar 141402 Eaton Centre mall will revealrepparttar 141403 wilder parts of Toronto life. Forrepparttar 141404 latest trends, Queen Street West is whererepparttar 141405 funky boutiques and bars are. For upscale shopping, go to Bloor Street between Yonge and Avenue Road as well asrepparttar 141406 Yorkville area.
