Adventure and excitement abounds in Toronto, the provincial capital of Ontario. Located on the north-western shores of Lake Ontario, it is also the largest city in Canada. The city boasts of many top class attractions like CN Tower and Rogers Centre. There is a bustling downtown and superb harbour front with spectacular views.
CN Towers, formerly the world's tallest freestanding building before Burj Khalifa surpassed it in late 2007, is a definite visit while in Toronto. It has a great observation deck with a fantastic 360 degree view. The glass floor can be scary if you are acrophobic, imagine walking on a mere sheet of galss at a height of 342 metres with a clear view of the ground. The elevator is super fast and you will be at the skypod in a jiffy. It is said one can even see the mists of Niagara Falls from the observation deck on a clear day.
A walk down the harbour front is a must while in Toronto. The waterfront is lined with amazing art studios, cafes, bars and shops. The view is spectacular and one can spend the evening browsing or indulging.
Toronto is truly a cosmopolitan city. Nearly half its population was born outside of Canada. The ethnically diverse population ensures there's always plenty of events around the city, catering to the different cultures. I was pleasantly surprised to see a huge Indian population in the city. It also meant I could treat my taste buds to some authentic Indian food outside of the sub-continent.
