  • Toronto #7 Top City in the World to Visit in 2016

    On January 7, 2016, the New York Times released its annual list of the “52 Best Places to Go in 2016” and ranked Canada’s largest city, Toronto, as the #7 top spot on the planet to visit this year.

     

    Toronto is located along the shores of Lake Ontario in the Canadian province of Ontario and is a relatively short drive away from majestic Niagara Falls.  

     

    Not only is Toronto Canada’s largest city, with over six-million people living in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), but it is also the most multicultural metropolis in this beautiful immigrant-friendly country and famous for its many ethnic neighborhoods and restaurants.

     

    Among the reasons the New York Times considers Toronto as the seventh best city in the world to visit in 2016 is the recent revitalization (June 2015) of the Queens Quay waterfront, which has a nice promenade and bicycle path that allows visitors to walk or bike along scenic Lake Ontario.

     

    The cafes, bars and live music found in the “stylish” West Toronto Junction neighborhood are also given as reasons to visit Toronto.   

     

    Furthermore, this incredible Canadian city is a prime travel destination due to its various cultural events held throughout the year, such as the annual Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) which occurs each September, as well as exciting spectator sports activities that the public can attend, such as watching Toronto Maple Leafs ice hockey matches or Toronto Blue Jays baseball games.  

     

    In short, the New York Times says, “Toronto is remaking itself as Canada’s premier city” (January 2016).

     

    The Economist made a similar appraisal in August 2015, ranking Toronto as the #4 “Most Livable City in the World” out of the 140 cities it evaluated around the globe.

     

    The high standard of living found in Toronto is a key factor that motivates thousands of people who immigrate to Canada to decide to settle in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). The cosmopolitan character of the GTA also makes it a comfortable, welcoming place for immigrants to call home.

     

    Whether you choose to immigrate to Canada or simply visit for vacation or business, Toronto is a “premier” Canadian city that has a lot to offer!
