Flip through the Guinness Book of World Records, and you're bound to see this city mentioned several times, either as the home of the (now second) tallest free-standing tower in the world; as the site of the largest underground shopping mall; or as the place where you'll find the longest street in Canada.

When to Visit Toronto

The best times to visit Toronto are March through May and September through November. Peak tourist season occurs during the summer months: the sidewalks come alive with pedestrian marketplaces, patio restaurants and numerous cultural events. However, as temperatures rise, so do prices. If you're looking to save money on hotels, pack a parka and book your trip during the wintertime.

Getting Around Toronto

The best way to get around Toronto is by public transportation. The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) runs three types -- subway, streetcar and bus -- which operate extensive routes throughout the city and  suburbs. You will need a token or a pass to travel on TTC; day and week passes allow for unlimited rides on all three forms of public transport. The subway also connects the city to the Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ), as do taxi cabs. However, you can expect to pay about $57 CAD (roughly $57 USD) for a cab, while the subway will cost a measly $3 CAD.
