Time Out’s Jessica Davey-Quantick writes: “Toronto has been described as ‘New York without the stuff’… to which we have to politely (in the most extremely Canadian way possible) disagree. Toronto is Ontario’s capital, the most populous city in Canada and the fourth most populous city in North America. Plenty of stuff. And more than half of Torontonians were born outside the country, meaning Toronto has some of the most diverse stuff in North America.”
She continues in the special Time Out destination guide for the FIPP World Congress edition of Magazine World that with more than 140 languages spoken inside the city, no matter who you are or where you’re from, you’re going to find something to love about Toronto. Whether you’re looking for a trendy bar, a chic hole-in-the-wall restaurant, exhibitions by up-and-coming artists or places to experience some of Canada’s vibrant heritage, Toronto’s got you covered.
And when you’re in Toronto you’re never far from the banks of Lake Ontario: a jaunt through the city can take you from downtown commotion to serene wilderness all in one day. And don’t worry about the weather; while it’s true that in Canada Halloween costumes are traditionally designed to be worn over a snowsuit, autumn in Toronto is a gorgeous blend of colours, sights and sounds.
The Time Out guide will take you all over the city, with its top picks of where to eat, where to drink, where to let your hair down and what to see. Still need more? Time Out has rounded up some of the weirdest things that truly set Toronto apart, so there’s never a dull moment. So welcome to Toronto: you’re going to be very busy!
