Down on ground level, the city is also known for its many green spaces, such as Queen’s Park and the huge High Park, which features walking trails, sports facilities and even its own zoo.

People from all over the world, from Europe to Latin American and the Caribbean to Asia have made Toronto their home, which is reflected in the city’s amazing music, culinary and arts scenes and can be seen when you walk through the various districts such as Koreatown and Little Italy, which all have their own distinct feel.
You can also take a day trip out to Niagara Falls if you wish, or try and catch a hockey or basketball game if you can get tickets.
