TORONTO & NIAGARA FALLS TOURING
With a population that is considered to be only 50 per cent native, the Canadian metropolis of Toronto is officially recognised as the most diverse city in the world.
As Canada’s largest city, home to more than 6 million people in and around the centre, Toronto boasts many of the country’s cultural reference points, making it the perfect spot to begin a Canada tour.
Such reference points do not come much more iconic than the incredible CN Tower, which served as the world’s tallest structure for 34 years until surpassed by Dubai’s Burj Khalifa in 2007. At 553 metres, the CN Tower is still more than tall enough to enjoy the spectacular views over the surrounding area from the observation deck, though the more adventurous can also ‘walk’ around its rim.
While the CN Tower dominates the skyline, Toronto features some equally striking architecture at ground level, most notably the Art Gallery of Ontario, which stands out with a Frank Gehry-penned wood and glass exterior that appears like a large, upturned boat frame.
The same can be said for the Royal Ontario Museum, with its jagged glass and metallic façade, and the City Hall, which was styled so that it looked like an ‘eye’ when viewed from directly above.
A sprawl of streets and parks that have officially established the city as one of the ‘world’s best to live in’, Toronto is split across six districts – Old Toronto, Etobicoke, York, East York, North York and Scarborough.
Indeed, though it is one of the busiest cities in the world, finding solace in Toronto is not a tough task, its plethora of parks and green spaces escaping the hive of activity to be found in places like Yonge Dundas Square with its Times Square inspired billboards, neon lights and drama.
For those wishing to venture further afield, Toronto is also just over an hour from Niagara Falls, the iconic landmark a must-see natural phenomenon for anyone visiting the vicinity.
Toronto is Canada’s culture capital, with a bewildering array of theatres, museums and galleries in which to enjoy internationally renowned works. The performing arts are particularly popular in Toronto, with more than 50 ballet and dance companies, while venues like the Four Seasons Centre and Roy Thomson Hall are globally revered. In addition, fans of art, comedy and literature will also be spoilt for choice during any visit.
It’s easy to see why Toronto is such an attractive proposition, its blend of culture, beauty and development making it an enticing place to live and an enjoyable city of visit.
