The areas in Toronto frequented by visitors can be divided into the city center, the surrounding communities outside of the city, and the Lake Ontario Islands. Attractions in the city center are quite concentrated, meaning they can mostly be reached on foot. Despite this, however, there are still other options for those looking to spend some time outside of the city. For example, Toronto Island on Lake Ontario is a great place to spend a comfortable afternoon by the water. Other famous attractions nearby include Niagara Falls and Algonquin Park.
Toronto landmarks such as the CN Tower, the vintage and literary brewery district, St. Lawrence Market, and City Government Complex of Toronto are all located in the heart of the city and are easily accessible by walking.

Toronto, the capital of Ontario province, is a popular tourist city in eastern Canada. The downtown area brings together Toronto hotels of various grades, with a wide selection of attractions, sights, restaurants and shopping concentrated in this area, making it the preferred area for travelers to stay. The Greater Toronto Area also includes regions such as North York, Scarborough, and Mississauga. Toronto Pearson International Airport is quite far away from the city center, so visitors who are transiting may be best off choosing a hotel nearby.
