Travel to Canada



Toronto is a huge city that contains about 1/8 of Canada’s population, and is a very diverse city. It has many different ethnic groups and has the largest Italian population outside of Italy. It has nice weather and rarely has heavy snowfall. During the summer it can be in the 90’s. The CN Tower, the world’s tallest free-standing tower is in Toronto. Near the top is a rotating restaurant called “360 the Restaurant” that not only serves great food but also provides a great view of the city. The Toronto Zoo is home to over 5000 animals and is a great place to go if you like animals. There are many tours of the city that can be on bus, boat, trolley, and foot. All of the street signs going east-west are yellow, and all of the street signs going north-south are blue.
