In between the honking horns, sirens, speedy streetcars and rushing crowds, there's a prevailing orderliness in which Torontonians attentively wait for streetlights, cross at corners and say "sorry" whenever shoulders are rubbed. Downtown streets spill into areas defined by their architecture and ethnic groups. Streetcars pass by skyscrapers that illuminate the skyline, then swoosh past bricked Victorian structures. Retrofitted factory warehouses, resurrected hotels and shopping emporiums abound.   Click here to see the full Toronto travel guide on Travel42 »

Toronto sits on the north shore of Lake Ontario. Bounded by two rivers, the Humber in the city's west end and the more eastern Don, Toronto has a rich tapestry of natural barriers that attract recreational types in every way through these green corridors. See vestiges of the ancient Iroquois Lake, a prehistoric lake from the Ice Age that has left its indelible mark, a ridge protruding from the city's midtown area, best seen from the site of the Casa Loma. This great ridge has a fabulous vantage point to see the lake and the islands.  Click here to see the full Toronto travel guide on Travel42 »

Toronto, with its steadily increasing number of nightspots, is bustling after dark. Look for a concentration of bars, taverns and late-night clubs in the King Street West entertainment district, the Esplanade area, at the Peter-Adelaide intersection (just north of the Rogers Centre) and in Yorkville. Little Italy, on College Street between Euclid Avenue and Crawford Street, is full of cafes, restaurants and nightclubs.

Originally, Toronto cuisine was built around the favored foods of mostly Scottish and English settlers who were raised on meat and potatoes. These days, the city's diverse and sophisticated cuisine reflects Toronto's multiculturalism. You'll find ethnic mom-and-pop diners, cafes and bistros, as well as temples of innovative haute cuisine. With more than 8,000 restaurants across the city there is something for everyone.  Click here to see the full Toronto travel guide on Travel42 »
