48 hours in. . . Toronto, an insider guide to Canada’s spirited first city
Canada’s multicultural melting pot
Canada’s largest city, the fourth largest in North America, is consistently ranked one of the best places to live in the world. Spending even a few days here makes it easy to see why. Cosmopolitan and cultured, fun and fun-loving, with an icing of unpredictability just to make things interesting, Toronto takes pride in being the dynamic, creative and safe sum of all its parts.
The city’s roots show in myriad ways, with more than 200 cultures represented on the streets. (The fact that there are three Chinatowns and two Little Italys speaks volumes.) This is one of the reasons why the culinary scene is such a big deal—there are more ingredients in the pantry to pull from. With four world-class sports teams, a spirited arts scene and a vibrant waterfront with its own airport, Toronto makes both a rewarding end destination and a great pitstop.
