Why Visit Toronto
Toronto has an active theater and music scene, a wealth of museums and exhibits, plenty of sports action, active night life, high-end and discount shopping, hotel accommodation options to satisfy just about anyone, and a broad variety of restaurant cuisines. The public transportation works well, with a mix of metro, light rail, and regional commuter rail. If you want a big city experience in North America, you can't do much better than Toronto.
When to Visit Toronto
Like most big cosmopolitan cities, Toronto is a year-round destination. Your choice of when to visit depends on three factors: the scheduling of events, exhibitions, and games you plan to attend; when you can score the best airfare and accommodations deals; and, of course, the weather. Toronto is ready to welcome you at any time. When you go is your call. Go in the summer for music festivals and go in the winter if you'd rather stay inside.
