No need to toe the line in Toronto, with Lonely Planet’s City Guide on your iPhone. Don’t let the nickname fool you, ‘Hogtown’ is Canada’s biggest, most diverse and vibrant city, and whether it’s be-bop at the Jazz Festival, arthouse at the International Film Festival, the foodie’s cornucopia of St Lawrence Market, the world-class collection of the Royal Ontario Museum or the boutiques of Yorkville, we’ve got it covered. Toss in local lore, in-depth background info, the best places to eat, sleep, shop, and socialise, and you’ve got yourself a good time to go. Too easy!
