  1. I love this article and its take on Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I grew up in this city for the first 27 years of my life, and I truly miss it everyday. I cannot say enough about the beauty, and feel of this city, it is really like no other. All of the places that are highlighted in this article, are incredible and unique to Toronto. I will go a step further, and encourage everyone who visiting the city to try the food from all of the different cultures that make this city great.

  2. What a great look at Toronto! The attractions alone look amazing, but what really caught my eye was the St. Lawrence Market. It seems as though the market provides an authentic, honest look at Canadian culture; I have to imagine that the influences of the rest of the country can be found here as well. The liveness of Quebec and Nova Scotia directly to the east, for example, must shape Toronto in some way, providing a melding of cultures. The Distillery District also seems to share pieces of the world through the various restaurants and bars there.

  3. I love this overview of Toronto. I have yet to visit Canada and constantly wonder what the culture is like over there. Is it similar to the lifestyle I have grown up knowing over here in America? According to this article yes there are many similarities as well as various different parts. For example they recommend aquariums, bars, and even a tall structure know as the CN Tower, which could possibly be considered our Empire State Building. Some of the food they mentioned and some of the photos showed some cultural differences present up in Canada, which was great to see. Overall this was a great way to get a quick overview on some of Toronto’s culture and I am very interested in visiting as soon as possible.
