Toronto was named one of the best places to travel in 2019.

Although this sounds familiar, because we were ranked as such before, the recent ranking comes from Travel + Leisure’s 50 Best Places to Travel in 2019 list.

According to the coveted travel publication, to come up with their annual list they look over press releases, tourism statistics, hotel openings, restaurant debuts, and new flight routes.

“We consider the anecdotal evidence: Where are our friends and families going? What destinations are we seeing on Instagram? Which places seem to be part of today’s travel zeitgeist?” reads the ranking introduction.

And this year’s list spans from places like Santiago, Chile, to Brisbane, Australia. And while there are the destinations that we haven’t heard much about, like India’s remote Andaman Islands, or the art and history-filled emirate of Sharjah, in the UAE, Canada also made the list.



Toronto, as well as the province of Alberta, are part of Travel + Leisure’s 50 best places to travel in 2019.

As it describes Toronto, the publication says, “The city is raising its art game: the Museum of Contemporary Art Toronto Canada has reopened after a three-year, $13 million relocation and expansion, and 2019 will see the launch of the Toronto Biennial of Art.”

It also goes on to mention Winter Stations, which brings public art to Lake Ontario’s beaches, and Nuit Blanche Toronto, our famous one-night festival.

While this may be news to some, we know Toronto is one of the best places to travel (and to live).
