It is located at the southern part of Ontario in the area called golden horseshoe. Toronto is famous for its amazing multicultural atmosphere and its beautiful downtown.

Ontario Nature:

All the great lakes of north America, except lake Michigan, are shared between Ontario and the USA. The existence of these lakes is one of the main reasons behind the uniqueness and beauty of Ontario nature. Ontario has near five months of warm weather, starting from May and lasting until October. While its spring peak during May is amazing, I think the most beautiful season of Ontario is Autumn, which is happening during October and late September.
