Visiting Toronto, Ontario by train

Toronto, Ontario, Canada is Canada's largest city and its financial and cultural center as well as the capital of Ontario, Canada. It's a large Canadian city with a modern cosmopolitan culture; people from every corner of the world have come to call Toronto home and the diversity and energy of the Canadian city make it a great place to visit on a Canadian train vacation.

With a population of around two and a half million, Toronto, Canada is roughly the size of Chicago, Frankfurt or Osaka. Like any of the world's major cities, there is so much to see and do here for vacation and tours that you could never take in all the city has to offer in a single visit – and Toronto, Canada is a city you'll want to visit again and again on different trips and through vacation packages.

An extensive network of public transit including buses, streetcars and subways make navigating the Canadian city quick and easy and Toronto is also well served by intercity rail, making it a perfect destination for any Canada train tour or vacation trips. You'll want to be able to get around and see the sights through tours; from the CN Tower (the tallest building in the Western hemisphere and a well known Canadian tourist attraction) to the charm of its Canadian neighborhoods old and new to theater and visual arts, Toronto is a Canadian city which invites you to explore.

The varied architecture of the Canadian city makes Toronto a visually interesting place. The Canadian city has some striking modern buildings, often located within a stone's throw of 1800s era residential or commercial buildings. If, on your Canadian vacation, you're interested in historic industrial architecture, the Distillery District located near the city's harbor is a must-see on any Canadian vacation. This Canadian district is home to some of the best preserved Victorian industrial architecture to be seen anywhere in North America and is designated as a national heritage site in Canada.

Toronto has many museums you'll want to visit while throughout the Canadian city, including the Royal Ontario Museum, the Ontario Science Centre and for something a little different, the Bata Shoe Museum, a museum dedicated to footwear. There are dozens of other museums and many art galleries around the city to visit as well that should be included in your Canadian vacation packages.

As befits any world class city, there are nearly unlimited dining and shopping options in Toronto, Canada. Generally speaking, if you can buy it or eat it, you can buy it or eat it here on your vacation. For shopping, the Yorkville district is a popular Canadian vacation destination and while Toronto is a Canadian city with many restaurants throughout, the Greektown neighborhood boasts one of the world's highest concentrations of restaurants, offering a culinary tour of Canada and the world in one compact area. This cannot be missed on any Canadian tours or vacation trips of Toronto, Canada.

You can get to or from nearly anywhere in Canada or the United States by train from Toronto on Via Rail; if you can manage to leave the excitement of Canada's largest city, you can enjoy Canada train tours across Canada to the Canadian Rockies. Whether you'd like to make Toronto your first stop on a train vacation in Canada to explore the Canadian Rockies, the Maritime Provinces or to see Niagara Falls on the Canadian/U.S. border, Canada Train Vacations can help you book exactly the Canadian vacation getaway by rail you're looking for.
