Toronto, the capital of the Canadian province of Ontario, is located near the border with the United States at the edge of Lake Ontario. Visitors flock to Toronto each year, as it is located quite close to Niagara Falls and is one of the largest cities in Canada. There’s shopping, shows, food, and culture galore, and plenty of history to go with it. Visitors staying in Toronto can choose accommodation in a high rise hotel with a view of the lake, a quirky, unique boutique inn, or in a small, historic Victorian house that has been converted into a quaint bed and breakfast.
