Canada’s most multicultural and diverse city, half of Toronto’s resident population was born outside of the country and speaks over 140 different languages. In this vibrant city, you can expect some of the finest eateries, most unique events and festivals, and some gorgeous architecture. With a long line-up of year round events and activities, any time is a good time to visit Toronto. To enjoy pleasant weather along with less crowds, try to plan a spring or fall visit, between April – May or September – October. Summer is the peak tourist season. From June – August the city streets come alive with fairs, farmers’ markets, cultural events, and festivals. This is also the perfect time to enjoy a host of water-based activities in one of the Great Lakes, Lake Ontario. Winter temperatures can drop to as low as 20 – 30 degrees Fahrenheit. However, you can still experience several fun activities such as ice skating and skiing during these months. Try to time your winter visit for festivals such as the ‘Cavalcade of Lights’ in November, or the ‘Winterlicious’ culinary fest in January for an even more exciting Toronto experience.

How to get around in Toronto?

Toronto is a walking city. The downtown core is compact and easy to explore on foot. If you don’t wish to walk, you can rely on the fast and efficient public transport operated by Toronto Transit Commission (TTC). Fares for buses as well as subways are $3.25 CAD per person. Children 12 years and younger ride free. You can also consider a 1-day pass for unlimited travel on TTC for $12.50 CAD.

Taxi cabs are easily available throughout the city, and you can hail one directly in the streets, especially in the downtown core. To travel to other parts of the city, you will need to phone a local taxi service. Uber and Lyft also operate in the city but watch out for surge pricing during peak times. For more flexibility while getting around in the city, you may want to drive around on your own.
