Toronto has made it onto the New York Times list of 52 top global tourist destinations for 2016, at No. 7.
The publication singles out the public art, green spaces, bike paths and promenades of Queen’s Quay on Lake Ontario and the former industrial area known as The Junction, and cites the convenience of the new Union Pearson express train.
On the cultural front, the Toronto International Film Festival in September gets a mention while the fact that the National Basketball Association’s first All-Star game outside the United States is scheduled to take place in the Queen City this year is also a plus.
The only other Canadian destination on the New York Times list – released annually – is British Columbia’s Southern Gulf Islands, which ranks at No. 50.
Last year, Squamish, B.C., and Quebec City made it onto the list, at numbers 32 and 40, respectively.
The top spot in the 2016 rankings is Mexico City. Other destinations include Bordeaux, France and Malta.
