We reveal our favourite places to eat, drink, shop, explore and relax in Toronto and Vancouver.
EDITOR’S POV I fall for Vancouver, with its rainforests and beautiful coastline, every time I visit—even before the plane lands. But Toronto has been trickier for me. Maybe it’s the landscape—I grew up in Calgary and still miss the snow-capped-mountain views. Still, my new home’s charms have grown on me over the five years I’ve lived here. Now, it’s hard to imagine a weekend without a trip to places like Evergreen Brick Works, the Distillery District, High Park... or, even better, somewhere I have yet to discover. CHRISTINA REYNOLDS
