As Canada’s largest city and most-visited destination, Toronto is very much at the heart of the Canadian travel experience. It’s home to the country’s biggest events, the most pro sports, the most theatres and restaurants, and it’s the financial, cultural, media and academic centre Canada. The very best of the country is all found in Toronto, Canada’s Downtown.
Toronto is Canada’s Downtown, and we extend an open invitation to the curious, fun-loving and adventurous traveller – an invitation to go all in, to be a part of this city, even if just for a brief moment. Because why watch when you can participate? Why eat, when you can taste? Why unplug when you can engage? Open up and be curious again. Go. All. In.
