Take to the Roads from Toronto: RV Rental
Big, Beautiful Toronto
On the shores of Lake Ontario, urban and modern Toronto is Canada’s most populous city and the centre of the Greater Toronto Area. Home to more than six million people, it is a clean, safe city with green spaces and a huge variety of cultures.
Originally six internal cities, Toronto is now made up of distinct neighbourhoods. These combine to form the beloved city skyline, which is occasionally visible from towns in the US. The CN Tower, at 550m high, is the most distinctive feature, and climbing it can offer amazing views of the lake and surrounding region.
Lay Your Head
For convenience, most visitors like to stay in the downtown core, which is home to many attractions and close to the lovely lakefront. Hotels are a mixed bag in the city, ranging from historic independent establishments to luxury chains. For those on a budget, there are also plenty of central backpackers, digs and hostels. The best of these is Clarence Park in Clarence Square – young, solo travellers should not pass this up! Bed and breakfast-style accommodation is also popular – they’re more cost-effective in the eastern suburbs and The Annex. The edges of the city are home to campgrounds, where you can park your motorhome for the night.
Toronto’s many immigrant communities contribute greatly to the events scene. Numerous festivals include Caribana, Corso Italia, Muslim Fest, the Ukrainian Festival and TaiwanFest. The biggest annual events are the Toronto International Film Festival, Pride Week, Toronto Fringe Festival and the Summerlicious and Winterlicious culinary extravaganzas. The Nuit Blanche night-time art exhibition takes place over 12 hours in many downtown venues and is a particular favourite, transforming the city into a gallery for a single night.
One of the best cities in North America for food, Toronto’s large size and multicultural feel delivers a variety of cuisines. All price points are covered, so you can excite your taste-buds with anything from fine dining to street food and farmers’ markets. Places of interest on the dining scene include Baldwin Village, Chinatown, Yorkville and the area around the Theatre District. Trade your RV’s gas stove for a night of fabulous Toronto cuisine.
Toronto is in a strategic position for growth and trade - in the part of Canada which dips down into the United States, close to the busy east coast cities, on an important waterway and near several major tourism hotspots. Residents are generally polite, tolerant and friendly. Especially in summer, they make the city buzz with life, in the parks and on the patios. In the winter, hole up in the cozy cafes, pubs and restaurants to enjoy Toronto from the interior.
Many different communities of immigrants form a cultural mosaic and they contribute flavour, colour and atmosphere. There are radio stations in the city which broadcast in multiple languages, as well as TV channels which branch beyond English.
Out and About
Explore the art, culture and history at one of the many museums, galleries and exhibitions. The Royal Ontario Museum is the cream of the crop, located north of Queen’s Park adjacent to the University of Toronto campus. The Art Gallery of Ontario is another great spot - Toronto also has an Aerospace Museum.
The multipurpose Rogers Centre stadium serves as home base for baseball’s Toronto Blue Jays, while the Toronto Argonauts play football in the Canadian pro league. Toronto FC play football in the Major League at BMO Field, with the Marlies in the American Hockey League.
Toronto is not known for its beaches, but they are here - and along with the city’s many parks, they offer a contrast to the urbanity of the city. For a picnic or walk, try the Beaches neighbourhood with its sandy shores, the clothing-optional Hanlan’s Point Beach, or any of the green areas amongst the CBD and suburbs - these are especially concentrated along the Don Valley. A motorhome or rental car can take you to some lovely spots on the lakefront outside of the central city.
The nightlife is best on Richmond and Adelaide Street, which have a multitude of bars. For the more relaxed drinkers, the city is also home to a number of microbreweries.
Toronto is a huge city! It also has a major transit system to make getting around and ticking off your list of things to do simple and easy. There are subway lines, streetcars, buses and a rapid transit line which combine to move people around. A single fare is $3 and a day pass $11. For areas outside of the central suburbs, a rental car or RV can get you places fast, except during rush hour! The international airport is located to the west of the city centre.
The humid continental climate of the Toronto area makes for a weather forecast of warm summers and cold winters, with four distinct seasons. Snow is a sporadic but reasonably common occurrence, and falls any time between November and April. The summer months have hot periods with high humidity. Spring and autumn are great times to visit as they tend towards the pleasantly cool end of the scale.
