  • Overview You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    A mere sportsman's stone throw from the shores of America's northernmost state, but wallowing in its own uniquely Canadian outlook, Toronto is a multicultural entity, home to an extensive immigrant population who – no matter where they hail from – invariably stand staunchly behind the underachieving but hero-worshipped Maple Leafs ice hockey team.

    The multi-cultural blend does make its way out in plenty of other ways, too, with Korean, Indian, Chinese and European culture all shining through in what’s no longer a city of icy Canadian traditions and little else. With that reputation brushed away, these days Toronto’s as cosmopolitan as any capital, and - with an enviable rock scene, street festivals, impressive art exhibitions and its own film festival - comfortably more so than Canada’s own.

    The iconic site, of course, is the CN Tower, stretching a mammoth 550 meters into the Toronto skyline, and originally built to overcome the communication problems caused by skyscrapers dominating the old city’s heights. 113 stories above the ground you can walk on a thin sheet of glass (the tourism board assures us it can hold the weight of 14 hippos, so you should be okay), experience an intense case of vertigo and soak up the tower’s impressive history, too. An added attraction is the Edge Walk, an opportunity to walk outside, yes that`s right, outside on top of the roof of the revolving restaurant!!

    If you can scrounge a ticket to a Maple Leafs hockey game, it’s something not to be missed, while the more sedate might prefer a cruise along the picturesque city harbor front. The Hockey Hall Of Fame is another angle on the city’s passion (and requires much less effort to get in to!), while the striking Yonge-Dundas Square is the place to be to enjoy the fountains, discover the heart of the entertainment district and pick up last minute discount theater tickets. Then there’s the compulsive and varied gallery scene with the Art Gallery of Ontario and many small galleries along Spadina and other parts of the city (aficionados could happily devote their entire trip to exhibition cruising), and even a distillery district – now a dedicated entertainment, culture and arts borough - to check out.

    Toronto’s time being peered down on by residents of other major Canadian cities is long behind it.
