This city is your city – where everyone is welcome, and everyone is celebrated and appreciated.
Iconic and industrious. Beloved and brash. Welcome to the 6ix, the northern city that never sleeps, thanks to the can’t-stop-won’t-stop atmosphere of the entertainment district and the all-day-all-night festivals of Pride, the Caribbean Carnival and the Toronto Independent Film Festival. Try something new; endless options are around every pristine corner. Slurp ramen, stockpile kimchi, load up on bannock, chow on lumpia. Every cuisine of the world competes for your attention, and the best are evidenced by the line-ups spilling onto the sidewalks. With so much to choose from, families will have to prioritize their days; CN Tower or Ripley’s Aquarium? Canada’s Wonderland or the Toronto Zoo? The Royal Ontario Museum or High Park? Cool your hot heels afterwards at the Toronto Islands, watching the picture-perfect skyline melt into Lake Ontario.
When the snow flies, pile on the mittens and toques; it’s time to head outside. Impromptu toboggan runs materialize at Riverdale Park and ice appears at Nathan Phillips Square’s outdoor rink, as the windows fill with Christmas displays and twinkling lights pop up in the trees. Toronto’s best moments are the quietest moments; a smile with your top-up of coffee at brunch, the hushed breath of 50,000 Blue Jays fans before a pitch, and the half-second between the last note of a world-class musical production and the roar of a standing ovation. Multicultural and modern. Welcoming and warm. Toronto truly has it all.
