OverView

Indigenous peoples have traveled through and inhabited the Toronto area, located on a broad sloping plateau interspersed with rivers, deep ravines, and urban forest, for more than 10,000 years.   After the broadly disputed Toronto Purchase, when the Mississauga surrendered the area to the British Crown,  the British established the town of York in 1793 and later designated it as the capital of Upper Canada.  During the War of 1812, the town was the site of the Battle of York and suffered heavy damage by American troops.  York was renamed and incorporated in 1834 as the city of Toronto. It was designated as the capital of the province of Ontario in 1867 during Canadian Confederation.

Best Time To Visit

Best Times - June through September
Average highs rest in the 50s and 60s, making a comfortable setting
for sightseeing. However, consider packing a few extra layers, since temperatures
(especially after sunset) can drop back down below the 45-degree mark.
Best Times - December through February
The brief summer offers respite from the cold Canadian climate.
Summertime also marks Toronto's festival season, with Pride Week and Caribana
drawing thousands of participants. However, this is also the peak season, so be
prepared for heavy crowds and fewer deals.
