A Toronto vacation offers the very best of Canada. If Vancouver is the pretty face of Canada and Montreal its bohemian soul, Toronto is the country’s warm, fast-beating heart. Canada’s largest city by far—the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) is home to 5.5 million people—the city is the financial, commercial, social and artistic capital of the country. Exceptional theater, music, bar and restaurant scenes make Toronto travel an exhilarating option. Mere steps from the bristle of downtown’s gleaming skyscrapers, a more down-to-earth, laid-back air prevails. Made up of a patchwork of distinct neighborhoods—including five Chinatowns and two Little Italys—Toronto is the world’s most multicultural metropolis. In fact, half of Toronto’s population was born outside Canada, and there are 200 different ethnic origins represented, not to mention 130 languages and dialects spoken within city boundaries.
