Kensington Market

So another nearby tourist attraction is Kensington Market.  A walkable bohemian neighbourhood that draws artists and tourists to its indie shops, vintage boutiques and arts spaces. In addition, the Market is also home to a wide array of speciality grocers, bakeries and cheese shops. Moreover, hipsters frequent trendy bars, cafes and international restaurants that range from casual to fine dining. In addition, students and families populate Victorian houses along tree-lined streets.

Moreover, the Kensington Market is an older neighbourhood and one of the city’s most well-known. So in November 2006, it was designated a National Historic Site of Canada.  Moreover Robert Fulford wrote in 1999 that “Kensington today is as much a legend as a district. Above all, the outdoor market has probably been photographed more often than any other site in Toronto.

Little Italy

In addition, attractions nearby include Little Italy, sometimes referred to as College Street West, is a district in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. So it is known for its Italian Canadian restaurants and businesses. There is also a significant Latin-Canadian and Portuguese-Canadian community in the area. In addition. the district is centred on a restaurant/bar/shopping strip along College Street, centred at the intersection of College and Grace Streets and the adjacent residential area, but spreading out between Ossington Avenue and Dufferin Street.  Therefore, the exact borders of the district are imprecise.  So the area south of College to Dundas Street is almost always considered part of Little Italy. Similarly the area north of Harbord Street is known as Palmerston–Little Italy or Bickford Park.

CN Tower

Moreover, the CN Tower is a 553.3 m-high (1,815.3 ft). Built on the former Railway Lands, it was completed in 1976. So it’s name “CN” originally referred to Canadian National, the railway company that built the tower. Following the railway’s decision to divest non-core freight railway assets prior to the company’s privatization in 1995, it transferred the tower to the Canada Lands Company, a federal Crown corporation responsible for real estate development.

Furthermore, the CN Tower held the record for the world’s tallest free-standing structure for 32 years until 2007. Moreover, it was the world’s tallest tower until 2009.  So it is now the ninth tallest tower in the world and remains the tallest free-standing structure in the Western Hemisphere. So in 1995, the CN Tower was declared one of the modern Seven Wonders of the World by the American Society of Civil Engineers. In addition, it also belongs to the World Federation of Great Towers. Moreover, it is a signature icon of Toronto and attracts more than two million international visitors annually.
