Toronto is a sprawling city that contains so many different unique neighbourhoods that it is actually known as the “city of neighbourhoods”. The city is divided by a major road called Yonge Street which separates the city into East and West Toronto.
Toronto is a vibrant city with over 2.5 million people who live and work in the city proper, and over 6 million in the metropolitan area. Also, Toronto has many large attractions such as the CN Tower, The Royal Ontario Museum, Art Gallery of Ontario, Casa Loma, Ripleys Aquarium and the Toronto Island. The Toronto Maple Leafs and Raptors make their home at Air Canada Centre. The Rogers Centre is the home of the Toronto Blue Jays Major League Baseball Club and Argos Football Team. Toronto has a wide array of interesting multi-cultural restaurants, coffee shops, bars, shopping centres and theatres.
East Toronto is well known for its trendy Greek Town and a lovely area called the Beach where the residents enjoy living on the lake. The East end also boasts a historical area called Cabbage Town where visitors can go on historical walks and visit a small urban farm complete with animals. On the east side of town you will also find the St. Lawrence Market and an area called The Distillery District which is a hot spot for unique coffee shops and pubs.
West Toronto has many exciting and vibrant areas such as Kensington Market, China Town, Queen Street West, Little Italy and Korea Town. Exploring these areas is always interesting and there is always a great selection of authentic ethnic restaurants to visit. Many people enjoy visiting High Park in West Toronto where you can walk for hours on trails and visit a small zoo.
