Toronto’s Hockey Hall of Fame

Canada’s Queen City: A Guide to Toronto, Ontario

Toronto, Canada’s largest city, is probably one of my favourite cities in the world. The city, which was established in 1834 as York, and later renamed Toronto, is the capital of its province, Ontario, as well as the fifth largest city in North America. Home to a very diverse group of people, with 50% of its residents being born outside of the country, Toronto is also one of the world’s most interesting cities. The world’s third largest tower, the CN Tower, dominates the city’s thriving skyline, while the world’s largest underground pedestrian system, the PATH, keeps the city bustling even beneath ground. I lived in Toronto for three years, and both sides of my family have lived in Toronto for a combined total of over eighty years, so I know a lot about the city. Therefore, in this post, I am going to be guiding you through where to stay, what to do, what to see, and how to get around Toronto.
