About Toronto


Toronto is the largest city in Canada and the provincial capital of Ontario.

It is located in Southern Ontario on the north-western shore of Lake Ontario.

Toronto's history dates back to the late 18th century, when its land was first purchased by the British monarchy from the Mississaugas of the New Credit.

Toronto has a humid continental climate, with warm, humid summers and cold winters. The city experiences four distinct seasons, with considerable variance in day to day temperature, particularly during the colder weather season.

Best Attractions in Toronto:

CN Tower

Built to broadcast signals for the Canadian National railway company, CN Tower offers panoramic views of Toronto's cityscape and vistas that stretch as far as Niagara Falls (on a clear day). In a mere 58 seconds, elevators whisk visitors to one of two observation levels. Edge Walk, a new feature for thrill-seeking travelers, lets the brave traverse a five-foot-wide (1.5-meter) exterior ledge 1,168 feet (356 meters) above the ground. It's no wonder that visiting the CN Tower is one of the top things to do in Toronto.

Royal Ontario Museum

Canada’s largest museum of natural history and human cultures celebrates Earth’s biodiversity and offers 30 extinct mammal fossil skeletons, as well as 166 non-mammalian fossil specimens from the Cenozoic Era. Unveiled in 2007, the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal – an expansion composed of five interlocking prismatic structures that house eight new galleries – has landed the museum on Travel + Leisure magazine’s list of "the world’s most beautiful museums."
Ontario Science Centre

Perhaps the first interactive science museum when it opened in 1969, Ontario Science Centre engages visitors through a wide variety of hands-on experiences, all designed to lead to new insights and discoveries. A $47.5-million transformation of the museum, completed in 2007, introduced the wildly popular Kids park, a space designed especially for junior scientists
Casa Loma

The romantic grandeur of this magnificent estate situated on a bluff overlooking Toronto is not to be missed. Built in the early 20th century by a Canadian financier and industrialist, the re-creation of a medieval castle features Norman, Gothic and Romanesque elements and has 98 rooms. The property also boasts five acres (2 hectares) of impeccably maintained gardens.
Niagara Falls

Formed by a retreating glacier 12,000 years ago, the three cataracts that comprise Niagara Falls are awe-inspiring. The water roaring over Horseshoe Falls, Bridal Veil and American Falls generates electricity, but most visitors’ chills come just from looking, whether they be in Queen Victoria Park, aboard a famed Maid of the Mist boat, or even flying high in a helicopter.
Toronto Islands

An 1858 storm separated a sand spit from the mainland, forming a peninsula and a cluster of islands that now sport myriad recreational activities for all ages. Following a short ferry ride, visitors can enjoy boat and bike rentals, a modern amusement park, fishing, tram tours, disc golf or even a clothing-optional beach.
