Toronto – Media, Education and Financial Markets
Toronto, located on Lake Ontario not far from Niagara Falls, is Canada's largest city and has many skyscrapers. The language spoken is predominantly English. The coastline here is mostly rugged, and the confluence of several rivers has created a number of canyons well worth seeing.
Wide range of festivals and music
Climatically, the best time to travel is between May and October.
At the end of May, Victoria Day is celebrated with a large fireworks display. In July there is a lot going on. July 1 is National Day, when parades, air and naval shows, a festival and numerous other events take place. Also at the beginning of July, the city hosts a theater festival, followed by the Beaches International Jazz Festival. This includes a series of concerts on the waterfront. This is followed by the largest Caribbean carnival in North America, with up to two million visitors. Toronto's summer also includes a beer festival.
Vacation planning tips
Most visitors will need a visitor visa or an eTA to enter Canada.
Everyone visiting should be aware that the rules on alcohol consumption in Canada are strict. Alcoholic beverages can only be purchased in special stores or in restaurants, and their consumption is prohibited in public and near drivers of vehicles. Extensive restrictions continue to apply to smoking. For a warm meal expect to pay approximately 15 CAD upwards, soft drinks start at around 2 CAD.
After landing in Toronto
If you want to stay in a guesthouse or backpacker hostel, you will have to pay from 35 CAD per night. In the semester break, student dormitories also offer inexpensive sleeping accommodations. Three-star hotels charge about 70 CAD for one person per night.
There are good connections for air travelers from the airport to many areas in Toronto. For example, the Union Pearson Express train runs 25 minutes from the airport to downtown for about 28 CAD. A cab takes about the same amount of time at a price of 60 CAD. The Toronto Transit Commission's bus line 192 also operates a service from the airport. The TTC offers a wide range of regional subways, streetcars and buses. One-way tickets are available from 3 CAD. It is worth knowing that tickets are only available at subway stations or other special sales points.
An absolute must for trips to the surrounding area is, of course, Niagara Falls. For nature lovers, the islands off the coast of the city are a highlight; you can get here by ferry or water cab.
