Toronto: Unmissable Canada

Museum-packed, arty, multicultural, youthful, bohemian Toronto rarely fails to enthrall. With the needle-like spire of the CN Tower soaring overhead, and the acclaimed Royal Ontario Museum and Art Gallery of Ontario beckoning between the Downtown blocks, sightseers and culture vultures won't have a moment to spare. Cue the beautiful banks of Lake Ontario, where the Niagara Falls beckon, and the lantern-lit eateries of Chinatown, the throbbing nightlife of Queen Street, and the redbrick rowhouses of heritage-rich Cabbagetown, and it's easy to see how Toronto vacation rentals draw so many.

Be enthralled by Toronto

Where to begin? This one bursts at the seams with things to do. Whether you're a foodie on a mission to taste the multicultural flavors of food trucks and farmers' markets, or a history buff looking for guided tours of Cabbagetown, there's an itinerary in Ontario's capital to suit. Beach hopping and boating on Lake Ontario are also possible, while excursions to the roaring falls of Niagara can't be missed. Throw in a medley of bohemian microbreweries, comedy clubs, and sizzling Sichuan eateries from Queen Street to Chinatown, and you'll begin to see all the enjoyments Toronto has to offer.

Bucket-list draws in Toronto

Toronto vacation rentals offer access to one of the most acclaimed museums in all of Canada: The Royal Ontario Museum. Housed in a UFO-like shell of modernist architecture, it's got a menagerie of Egyptian artifacts and Ancient dynastic art from China, Canadian masterworks and mysterious Indian trinkets. Misty rainforest rooms and IMAX shows await at the nearby Ontario Science Centre, and the Art Gallery of Ontario flaunts priceless European canvasses next to national greats. And that's really only a taster of the things to come.

There's never a dull month in Toronto

You're bound to be bewitched by Toronto's hodgepodge of cultural attractions no matter the season you come. That said, the summertime here sees the city's bars and eateries come to life, and there's never a better time to seek out Toronto vacation rentals along the shores of Lake Ontario than the months between May and August. Winter, from December to March, has snow, and turns the cafes into cozy boltholes. It's also when you'll find the cheaper rates _ except around Christmas and New Year _ and smaller crowds.

Going lakeside in Toronto

Toronto is wedged between the urban satellite towns that ring the northern banks of Lake Ontario. The lake itself is the biggest natural draw in the region. It's fringed with sands here and there, with the districts of Parkdale and Beaches offering some of the best. The Toronto Islands are a great place to escape the city, with their wooded bays, green backcountry, and farmsteads. The Niagara Falls, meanwhile, sit just around the banks _ a real North American wonder. You're also never too far from beautiful Muskoka and Lake Huron for a wilder encounter with Canada.
