Toronto is Canada’s largest city, which means a wide range of ethnicities, education opportunities, and fun and touristy things to do!
Here are some of the top reasons to live in the vibrant city of Toronto!
1. No Car? No Problem
Toronto’s subway system was ranked third best in North America. No matter what location you live in Toronto, public transit is easily accessible. Even if you do not take the subway, the bus and street car stops are around every corner.
2. The Airport Is Close
If you are a travel enthusiast, or just want to go to New York for a weekend, Toronto Pearson International Airport is close for your convenience. Any major public transit routes will take you there too.
3. Food Frenzy
As well as hosting lots of different food festivals throughout the year (Taco Fest, Beer Festival, Caribbean Street Food Festival, etc.) Toronto is home to various restaurants all across the city. Whether you are craving seafood, pub style food, Chinese, Thai, or sushi, your craving can easily be satisfied.
4. Live Music
Toronto has lots of stages for both big and small bands to play, whether it be at the Budweiser Stage, Scotiabank Arena, or Massey Hall. There are always great bands to see or music festivals held throughout the year, like Veld and the Toronto Jazz Festival.
5. Roof Over Your Head
Yes, there is no doubt about it: the Toronto housing market is expensive, as well as rental prices. But if you are looking to move into the big city, there is no shortage in supply. Whether you are looking for a condo, townhome, detached or semi-detached home, there will always be options for you to view.
6. Sporting Events
As well as lots of live music, there is also many sporting events and Torontonians love supporting their teams! Whether they are supporting the Toronto Maple Leafs or the Blue Jays, there is never a bad time to take the family out for the day and cheer on their favourite players.
7. Tour Around Your Own City
Even though you are planning on residing in Toronto, there are still lots of tourist spots to checkout yourself. Take the kids to the Ripley’s Aquarium or the Royal Ontario Museum or purchase a CN Tower package that includes dinner for you and your partner.
8. Coffee Connoisseurs
Toronto is home to many coffee roasters, so whenever you need a caffeine fill, you will not be disappointed. Not only do they have amazing coffee, but the cafés are a nice spot to sit and do your work, or just relax.
