Where to Stay When Visiting Toronto

 Toronto is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world, with more than half of its residents belonging to a visible minority and more than 200 languages spoken. Compared with other large North American cities, Toronto is very safe. It is a four season city, with hot summers, colorful autumns, snowy winters, and wet springs.

 Houses for sale in Toronto are at an all-time high. With the price of the average detached home in Toronto currently sitting at around $1.35 million, you should think about renting, at least when you first arrive. Here are some areas to check out when visiting Toronto. 


Harbourfront

Toronto’s Harbourfront neighborhood is a diverse community with picturesque views of Lake Ontario and the Toronto Islands. Once a busy shipping terminal, the area is undergoing a massive, multi-year transformation. The 10-acre Harbourfront Centre houses studios, theatres, galleries and markets including The Power Plant, one of Toronto’s foremost galleries for contemporary art. Multicultural programming takes place every weekend throughout the summer.

Chinatown

A smattering of colorful signs adorns the storefronts of Chinatown’s main avenues where a bustling community of pedestrians weaves their way through the myriad of fresh fruit markets, specialty shops, and restaurants that line the streets. Many visitors and locals head here for the fine restaurants, which serve everything from dim sum to amazing multi-course dinners that compete with those of the finest restaurants in the city. You'll also enjoy the amazing array of shops peddling silk kimonos, Chinese herbs, porcelain, jewelry, and even kitschy souvenirs. 

Entertainment District

It’s all in the name. Toronto’s Entertainment District is the #1 place to be for fun and entertainment. It’s got a great mix of adult entertainment and family-friendly attractions, like bars and clubs, entertainment venues, theatres, concert halls and even Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada. It’s also home to the famous CN Tower and the Toronto International Film Festival. 

Yorkville

Some of these attractions include the Royal Ontario Museum, the Gardiner Museum, and, the Art Gallery of Ontario, to name a few.
