Going to Toronto is great because it’s an international trip and you get to see lots of cultures all in one place. Stats say that 50% of people in Toronto are born outside Canada, with over 130 languages spoken in Toronto. There is a Little Italy, Little Portugal, China Town, Little India and more plus international markets and huge museums with artifacts from all over the world to explore.
Stay at The Drake Hotel (pictured) or The Gladstone Hotel, which are located a few blocks from each other on Queen West. Together they’ve become the nexus of upmarket, artsy, and bohemian Toronto, with their artist-decorated rooms, ample nightlife, amazing food, and community-supporting ways. Plus, in this neighborhood, you’ll get a feel for how real Torontonians live.
