Toronto Southern Ontario Map ITMB 

Toronto is the largest city in Canada by far. Touristically, its attraction rests with its central core, from High Park in the west to the Don River in the east, and from the park-like islands in Lake Ontario to Bloor Street in the north. In this area, one finds remnants of the oldest portion of ‘muddy York’, the original fort built to deter American raiders (close to the exhibition grounds), Campbell House (at Queen & University), and the first public school in Canada (1807). The city is exceptionally multi-cultural, with a vibrant Chinatown just north of City Hall, Little Italy and Little Brasil bordering College Street, and Greek town along the Danforth. The Yorkville area has been a focal point for coffee shops and night clubs for more than half a century, and the university campus is one of the most-respected in the world. The Islands have been largely converted into parkland, and have ferries going to five destinations on a regular basis.

The streetcar network is not just for tourists, as it is vital to Toronto’s mass transit operation, as are the subway system and GO trains serving the city centre. The other side of the sheet is equally important. Geographically, Southern Ontario juts into the American heartland to the 42nd parallel. Detroit is actually north of Windsor, and Point Pelée is south of Erie, Ohio. Most residents of Ontario live in the part of the province deemed to be ‘southern”. This map covers from Detroit/Windsor in the west to Kingston and Syracuse in the east and from Erie north to Orillia, showing lakes Huron, St. Claire, Erie, and Ontario and the border between two great nations. This is a part of North America rich in history and acts as a natural expansion point for anyone visiting Toronto.
