Toronto is the sum of its neighbourhood parts, all 140 of them! Families should head to the Harbourfront neighbourhood, where they can stay at global branded hotels, get gorgeous harbour views and have easy access to shoreline walks and the ferries that take visitors and residents to the Toronto islands and beaches.
Those with a taste for nightlife will be drawn to the entertainment and fashion districts of King and Queen streets West – where you can eat from a multi-culti mix of cuisines, party after dark and stay at luxury international hotels – and the financial district, where power shopping and power lunches take place, with brand-laden shopping malls and top chefs serving it up.
