Toronto bears many titles-one of the globe's most culturally diverse cities, the heartbeat of the country's business community, and the first stop on the itinerary of the majority of travelers to Canada. The city has transformed itself in recent years into one of North America's largest metropolises, brimming with a breadth of nightlife, dining, theatre and entertainment that rivals any on the continent. A wave of investment has led to the unveiling of a new generation of cultural institutions and high-end hotels that are pushing the city to the forefront of the global tourism destinations. Frommer's Toronto Day by Day will guide readers through this new Toronto, quickly and with an insider's knowledge of the one-of-a-kind experiences that lurk in the city's many vibrant neighborhoods. With hundreds of color photos, dozens of annotated maps and walking tours, thematic tours for every taste and star-rated advice on where to eat, stay, shop, and have fun, this book is the perfect accompaniment to any visit to the city.
