What you should know about North York

From Little Moscow and the Korean Strip to the Persian Section, the roll call of North York suburbs reveals this excitingly diverse district as a cornerstone of Toronto's multicultural energy. Once a neighborhood of farms and small villages, the last 2 decades have seen North York rise up as a city with a skyline to rival parts of Toronto's downtown. But even while it rushes towards the future, with its science museums and business parks, North York remains a neighborhood of colorful cosmopolitan charm.

Hotels in North York

In this large, sprawling neighborhood you won't find accommodation in North York arranged nicely in one hotel district. Instead its diverse collection of hotels, motels, and B&Bs are scattered quite widely. Among the best-rated hotels in North York is the Westin Prince Toronto. Expect generously sized rooms, good food, and excellent service from this 4-star North York hotel. The Liberty Suites Hotel is located on Yonge Street, the district's growing commercial hub, and offers a 24-hour business center and free parking. Lastly, the welcoming Smile B&B provides a change of pace—and affordable hotel rates—at its wonderfully appointed suburban dwelling.

Things to see in North York

The attractions here in North York are also spread widely around the district. The Ontario Science Centre is on the southwest side, perched on the edge of the Don River ravine. An early pioneer in interactive displays, the Science Centre includes exhibits on astronomy, geology, the human body, and the science of music. Edwards Gardens is a beautiful slice of nature that's also found in the ravine further north. It's known for its roses, wildflowers, and water-carved rockery. It backs onto Toronto's ultimate in real estate luxury—the Bridal Path, home to the city's millionaires. The Aga Khan Museum is a testament to the area's diverse communities, housing fine collections of Islamic art in a startlingly modern building. Of particular note are its historic, and beautiful, examples of early Qu'ran manuscripts. History of a different kind comes alive at the Black Creek Pioneer Village, where you can experience the life of Ontario's early pioneers in the 19th-century.
