Toronto

From its beautiful scenery to its hospitality and diverse neighborhoods, Toronto has a lot to offer visitors. The downtown core, with the Entertainment District, enormous bank towers, and continuous activity, is fast-paced and always exciting. Often called "the city in a park," Toronto is surrounded by nearly 10,000 acres of parkland, with forests, beaches, wilderness preserves, and rivers.

Just as the word Toronto means "meeting space," it comes to no surprise that it is also called home by almost 5 million people. Boasting 180 ethnic groups and over 100 languages, Toronto has always been the destination for many immigrants to Canada. This diversity is reflected in Toronto's ethnic neighborhoods which include Little Italy, Little Jamaica, Little India, Chinatown, Koreatown, Greektown, Malta Village, Portugal Village, Corso Italia, Kensington Market, and Little Mogadishu.

Toronto offers its guests opportunities to experience the performing arts, cultural attractions, professional sports and more! Listed below are a few sights and attractions you can find in Toronto:

The CN Tower – the world’s tallest free standing structure, offers great panoramic views of the city
The Art Gallery of Ontario – Toronto’s largest art gallery, new architectural design
The Royal Ontario Museum – diverse art collection, recently opened 11 new galleries
The Hockey Hall of Fame – interactive games and hockey artifacts from around the globe
The Roy Thomson Hall – home of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra
Air Canada Centre – home to the Toronto Maple Leafs hockey team and the Toronto Raptors basketball team
Eaton Centre – world class shopping center with beautiful architecture
PATH – underground walkway connecting over 1200 stores and restaurants, 50 office towers, 5 subway stations, 6 major hotels, and several entertainment centers

Temperatures in April range from 38-53 degrees. It is suggested to bring a light jacket, an umbrella, and clothes that can be easily layered.

Toronto is in the Eastern Standard Time zone (EST).

The monetary system in Canada is based on Canadian dollars (CDN$) and cents. International currency exchange services are offered at Pearson International Airport as well as at banks and currency exchange outlets located throughout the city. U.S. dollars are accepted everywhere in Toronto, although change from transactions will be given in Canadian currency. ATMs/cash machines are located throughout Toronto and dispense Canadian currency. Credit cards and traveler’s checks are accepted at most major retailers.
