Toronto is known as somewhat of a melting pot and continually accepts all types of diverse people and heritages into it's welcoming arms. It hosts a large number of Asian immigrants. Asian relics and art can be seen at the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM). Chinese culture is also prevalent and the city boasts it's own Chinatown. French and English are the official languages.
The Toronto Ontario Temple, which took 6 years to be built after the announcement, was the 2nd temple to be built in Canada and was the Church's 44th operating Temple overall. It resides in a nice residential suburb outside of Toronto. The design is modern from white cast stone and has one magnificent spire rising from the base of the temple, similar to the Denver Colorado Temple. Angel Moroni stands proudly atop the spire holding his horn. The base is decorated with a vertical repeating arch pattern. The area is famous for converting John Taylor (3rd LDS President). The Church slowly gained converts throughout the early years and this Temple serves a wide area of diverse members, including Ontario, Quebec, the Maritimes and some northern US states. It's a blessing and an answer to member's prayers.
If you're coming from the states or haven't seen Niagara Falls Canada, it's only about an 1 hour and 15 min. drive from Toronto. You may also be able to catch a glimpse from the CN Tower. A natural wonder that must be seen at least once. If you'd rather stay closer to the city, visit the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) where you don't have to travel far to learn about world cultures and natural history. Find gourmet food and wares at the indoor St. Lawrence Market. Learn all you ever wanted to know about hockey and the history of legends at the Hockey Hall of Fame & Museum. If you want to spend an afternoon on an idyllic island just a 15-minute ferry ride from the city, visit one of the three Toronto Islands.
Downtown Toronto has some of the best restaurants around. Buca is known for creative Italian food and they even cure their own meat. A place to spoil yourself. Khao San Road offers excellent Thai food. Closer to the Brampton area, you can find British-style favorites and fresh fish at the family-run Heritage Fish & Chips. Homestyle Southern BBQ is a crowd favorite at RD's Southern BBQ. For traditional breakfast items for a reasonable price, order at the Good Egg Dining counter.
The food and attractions will take you on an ethnic tour you won't soon forget.
