The definition of multicultural; welcoming Toronto is a microcosm of the world, a metropolis representing hundreds of nations. This cultural diversity translates to a foodie's fantasy. Cuisine from all over the world is represented: nosh on gnocchi in Little Italy, chow down in Chinatown, imbibe on local brews in the Distillery District, dine on delicious curries in Little India, or discover the international fares of lively Kensington and St. Lawrence markets, which serve as passports to your palate.
There's plenty of sightseeing to do throughout the year. Culture vultures can tour Toronto's many museums and galleries, like the impressive Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) and the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO), as well as an eclectic mix of galleries scattered throughout the city. Toronto boasts the third largest theatre district in the English-speaking world, outside of London's West End and New York's Broadway. Toronto is a collage of colourful neighbourhoods worth exploring.
Toronto showcases many beautiful historic buildings amongst its modern skyscrapers. These create an impressive skyline over Lake Ontario, with the focal points being the CN Tower (which until recently was the world's tallest structure) and the domed Rogers Centre stadium. Ripley's Aquarium is situated at the base of the tower, home to an impressive collection of aquatic life in state-of-the-art surroundings. The Ontario Science Centre, Casa Loma and Black Creek Pioneer Village are also family-oriented attractions.
About an hour and a half drive outside the city are the famous Niagara Falls and scenic Niagara-on-the-Lake wine region. Head a few hours north and you're in beautiful cottage country, which offers a plethora of activities year round swimming and boating in crystal lakes, or snowshoeing, skiing and ice fishing in winter, to name a few.
The best time to visit Toronto is May to October. Springtime can be chilly but flowers are blooming, the humid heat has yet to arrive and tourist crowds are at bay. Autumn boasts beautiful fall colours, a dazzling display that starts in September. Toronto winters can be frigid, so summertime is when Toronto really comes alive. Torontonians awake from hibernation to enjoy biking, patio hopping or enjoying the many peaceful parks.
