Any time of year, it is great to be in Toronto. In summer, there are many arts and cultural festivals. During the fall, the colourful trees are beautiful. In winter, go ice-skating by the lake. Each spring, fragrant cherry trees bloom in High Park. The city has many kinds of attractions, such as the CN Tower, Casa Loma, the Royal Ontario Museum, the Art Gallery of Ontario, Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada, and Canada’s Wonderland theme park. Toronto is a city of neighbourhoods. Our fabulous multicultural communities — Chinatown, Greektown, Little Italy, and Koreatown — let you eat your way around the world.
