Toronto a 2014 ‘Top Budget’ destination


Toronto has made’s recently put together list of “Top 10 Budget Destinations” for 2014.

Coming in at number two, this is what officials had to say about Toronto, “Porter Airlines’ frequent $86, one-way fares to Toronto make it an easy choice for domestic travellers – especially those in the Northeast – who are considering a trip northward for scenery, nightlife, and great food. Toronto fits the bill perfectly, with a little bit of something for everyone: culture hounds can catch an evening show by the Toronto Symphony Orchestra (tickets from $33) at gorgeous Roy Thomson Hall; urban explorers can venture into Chinatown (simply ride TTC to St Patrick station); and aspiring chefs and foodies can shop for pierogies, fresh bison, or souvlaki at the historic two-level St Lawrence Market.

Plus, the newly opened Ripley’s Aquarium (tickets from $29.98), the country’s largest, offers a fantastic option for families that’s right in the heart of Downtown. Note that Porter flies into tiny Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, which then requires a short ferry ride into the city centre.”

Also making the top 10 were: Singapore, Kraków, Mexico City, Nashville, Edinburgh, Downtown Las Vegas, Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, Panama City, Panama and Avarua District (Rarotonga), the Cook Islands.
