Known as “The Queen City,” Toronto dominates the Canadian side of Lake Ontario, a short drive from Niagara Falls and the New York State border.
Surrounded by lakes and channels, the provincial capital of Ontario is loaded with historical attractions, a vibrant arts and culture scene, and fantastic outdoor spaces to explore – not to mention its status as a hotspot for foodies.
Easily the largest city in Canada, Toronto has over 2.7 million people with a total of almost 6 million in the greater metropolitan area. Featuring a long lakefront shoreline, the Toronto Harbour is situated at the northern end of the city, sheltered by the Toronto Islands. Iconic neighborhoods include Little Italy, Chinatown, Church & Wellesley, Koreatown, Queen West, the Entertainment District, Yorkville, the Distillery District, and Old Mill. Nearby areas like the Niagara Wine Country, Wasaga Beach, Collingwood, and historic Hamilton attract visitors for day trips.
