A relatively modern city, Toronto was founded in the late 1700s and has grown to become the capital of Ontario and largest city in Canada. With a metro area of 6 million residents, Toronto skyline pictures show what is currently the 5th most populated city in North America.
Covering an area of 243 square miles, Toronto skyline pictures often features the city's many waterways, such as the Humber River, Don River, Rouge River and Toronto Harbour. Situated on the northern shore of Lake Ontario, the city's growth can be attributed to the ease of transportation and shipping along Great Lakes trade routes, allowing Toronto to easily transport deeper into Midwest North America or east, to the Atlantic Ocean.
One of the greatest tourist attractions seen in Toronto skyline photos is the 1,815 foot tall CN Tower, which is the tallest free-standing structure in the Western Hemisphere. It was once the tallest tower and tallest free-standing structure in the world for 34 years until 2010, when the Burj Khalifa and Canton Tower were completed. Some of the other buildings located near CN Tower are easily seen in many Toronto skyline panoramas, and include First Canadian Place, the Canadian Trust Tower, and Scotia Place.
Rogers Centre is another easily-noted landmark in Toronto skyline pictures and is home to the Toronto Blue Jays of Major League Baseball and the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League. In the past, the Buffalo Bills have played at the stadium for as many as 8 games in a season. The dome of Rogers Centre is difficult to miss when viewing a Toronto skyline picture as it has an unmistakable, glowing purple roof.
A city with a large number of immigrant residents, Toronto pictures show one of the world's most cosmopolitan cities and an important center for Canadian immigration. With half of its residents born outside the country, viewing Toronto skyline pictures makes it easy to see why the metropolis has drawn so many to travel and live there.
