Canada’s most cosmopolitan city is situated on beautiful Lake Ontario, and is the cultural heart of south central Ontario and of English-speaking Canada. A walk along the waterfront leads to beaches, marinas, boating facilities, parkland, bike trails, and tennis courts. The heart of the city is adorned with millions of plants and trees. The city has been called the Hollywood of the North because of the number of movies and television shows that are filmed within the city. The retail sector is enormous, with many major shopping centers in and around the city. For the finest retail and boutique shopping head to Bloor Street and Yorkville to be among the rich and trendy. To be a total tourist, take a trip up the CN Tower and stand on the glass floor. To see the historic side of the city, check out the St. Lawrence Market and the Distillery District, just east of the financial district. Here you will find art galleries, pubs, fine dining, bars, and unique interior décor shops. There are also miles of paths for running and biking, easy access to golf, tennis and swimming in summer and to skiing and ice skating in winter.
