Many consider Toronto, Canada's largest city, to be "the New York City" of Canada based on its urban, trendsetting, financial Mecca complete with the nation's top museums and a thriving theater scene. Like New York, Toronto blooms with ethnic neighborhoods that add character and charm to the cityscape, as well as cafes that sell moderately priced savories from dim sum to jerk chicken and Turkish flatbreads.

Toronto is also family-friendly. The attractions are engaging, the museums are kid-friendly and the hotels offer a wide range of prices. Located on the northern shore of Lake Ontario, Toronto makes great use of its waterfront, creating a lively venue for food fairs, musical concerts and kids' events. Toronto, noted for its International Film Festival held every September, also hosts the Sprockets Toronto International Film Festival for Children.
