Things To Do In Toronto
Toronto is the largest city in Canada. It’s clean, safe, and has a lot to offer. However, if you’re a tourist from out of town — or even if you’ve lived here your whole life — there are some things about the city that you might not know.
Toronto is the largest city in Canada
Toronto is the most populous city in Canada and the provincial capital of Ontario. It’s the fifth-most populous city in North America, behind Mexico City, New York City, Los Angeles, and Chicago. Toronto is geographically located in the heart of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) which is considered to be the most populous metropolitan area in Canada.
Canada has welcomed over 250,000 immigrants since 1971 – 2010, with over half of those coming from the Philippines, the United States, Ecuador, and Costa Rica. Many of these families have set down roots here, and are known to refer to themselves as “Canadians” for much of their day-to-day life.
Toronto has two major rivers, the Humber and Rouge
Toronto has two major rivers, the Humber and Rouge. The Humber runs south and east from Lake Ontario, and is dammed to form Lake Simcoe, which is an important source of water for the region. The Rouge runs north and west from the Oak Ridges Moraine to Lake Ontario, and is a popular destination for canoeing and fishing. Ontario is also home to the province’s largest transcontinental highway: the Don Valley Expressway (DVAt). In terms of attractions, Toronto’s most famous landmark isn’t the CN Tower (although you won’t find billboards for birth announcements there) — it’s the Tower of sibling towns Mississauga and York Region. If you travel to either side of Lake Ontario, you’ll find a cross-section of Toronto, with shops, restaurants, and entertainment at every turn.
Toronto is home to many cultural attractions, such as the Royal Ontario Museum and the Hockey Hall of Fame
Toronto is home to many cultural attractions, such as the Royal Ontario Museum, the Hockey Hall of Fame, and the CN Tower, which is the third tallest free standing structure in the world. The city is also a popular tourist destination, and 6.2 million tourists visit the city every year. For a ton of Toronto coverage, please see number one. But what’s a little snow on your first night in town, right? If you’re visiting the city for the first time, there is a very good chance that no matter how much you prepare, it is going to snow at some point during your stay.
