Toronto — The “New York City of Canada” may feel tame on the surface – perhaps because, unlike most major metropolises, it’s actually clean – but beneath the polite, shiny veneer, an artistic energy percolates. Toronto owes much of its richness in art, dining, and shopping to its international residents (around 50 percent of Torontonians are immigrants). Still unsure of its place on the world stage, the city nonetheless holds its own as a cultural capital.

Why Go

For the art and theater scene (and the fall film festival), the food, and the cultural diversity . . . Canadian-style.
