Diversity Is Overrated
The problem with considering Toronto as a vacation destination stems from the atmosphere that the progressive “One World Order” types love about it.
Toronto is diverse.
Diversity is great if you want to live in a downtown loft apartment where you can walk to a Vietnamese restaurant Monday night, a Brazilian churrascaria Tuesday night, and a French bistro Wednesday night.
But frankly…from a traveler’s point of view…diversity kinda sucks.
I don’t want Saigon pho for dinner when I’m visiting Toronto.
When I am traveling, I want a taste of what’s local, unique, and “quintessential” to the region I am exploring.
But what is local, unique, quintessential to Toronto?
How do you immerse yourself in the local culture when virtually no one you meet is even from Toronto?
Heck, by the looks of it, most Torontoans aren’t even from this hemisphere.
If you really want to experience Canadian culture, visit Victoria or Montreal or Quebec City…or even Vancouver.
Toronto feels like it could be anywhere.
Now, that doesn’t mean you should skip this metropolis. Just don’t invest too much of your precious vacation days seeing it.
24 hours will do.
And here’s how I did it.
