Known as an exceedingly multicultural city, Toronto offers a destination perfect for diverse groups who have been struck by wanderlust.
With so much to see you could plan your trip around some of Toronto’s signature events. Art lovers can immerse themselves in Scotiabank Nuit Blanche, a contemporary art event from sunset to sunrise. Foodies, restaurateurs and more can indulge in Summerlicious: a two-week culinary event to delight even the most judicious palates. Fly to Toronto at Christmas time for the Cavalcade of Lights where you can break out the ice skates, watch brilliant firework displays and jam to live music from leading Canadian artistes. Grab some Caribbean flavour and hold on tight because you won’t want to miss Caribana, one of Toronto’s largest cultural festivals. It’s the party of the year showing the sweetness of the Caribbean, from the colourful street carnival to celebrity-thrown Caribbean theme parties. It’s so good you may as well get a weekend pass for all the events.
Art lovers’ heaven
Museums must be on your list. Support the preservation of modern design from graphics to furniture at the Design Museum or visit the Bata Shoe Museum and delve into the function and aesthetics of shoes spanning 4000 years. If you prefer natural history and culture, then the Royal Ontario Museum is your best bet.
