On its pretty perch on the edge of Lake Ontario, Toronto weaves into a tapestry of enthralling neighbourhoods. Some come scented with the delights of Campania, like the pizza-packed blocks of Little Italy. Others sizzle with seafood and slosh with coffee, like Little Portugal in the West End. Chinatown, meanwhile, is lit by red neon and churns out tastebud-tingling dim sum. Then there are the parts that are quintessentially Canadian, from the happening summertime parks of the Harbourfront to the kitsch bars of Yonge Street. The result is a buzzing, multicultural hub – the largest city in Canada, throbbing with energy and heritage and more. Book Toronto holiday rentals with ebookers to have your own taste of the action.
There are plenty of benefits to booking Toronto holiday apartments over a classic hotel. For starters, you'll get the chance to settle in one of the big city's neighbourhoods like a real local. With a pad to call your own for the whole duration of your stay, you'll slot in like a bona fide Torontonian, hopping back and forth between your private kitchen and the food markets, or heading out to your local café for a sip of artisan coffee in the morning. Then there's the extra room you'll get – most holiday apartments in Toronto tend to be far bigger than hotel suites, with lounge spaces, hallways and even gardens thrown into the mix.
The point where bustling Yonge Street dips into Old Toronto is a great place to begin your adventures in this city. That whole area is packed with things to do, whether that means seeing the flying pucks at the Hockey Hall of Fame, exploring the hallowed streets of educational Discovery District, or checking out everything from Chinese vases to dinosaur bones in the awesome Royal Ontario Museum. Then, there’s the fun-loving Harbourfront area, now totally revived to be a hotpot of arts festivals and ad hoc music shows in the summer. The Toronto Islands are just over the water from that, offering sweeping skyline views with the CN Tower poking into the clouds.
While driving yourself around Toronto in a private rental car is certainly the quickest way to hop about Canada's largest metropolis, the city's excellent public transportation network also means 4 wheels aren't necessary. There's the efficient subway and rapid transit lines, each interconnected and offering stops both in the downtown and throughout the suburbs. For getting around neighbourhoods like the Financial District, Cabbagetown, Chinatown, Little Italy and Queen West, streetcars are perhaps the most pleasant option – Toronto is the only city in Canada to still have this historic mode of transport in action, and it’s an attraction in itself.
