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 population of 6 million residents, Toronto is currently the 5th most populated city in North America. Covering an area of 243 square miles, our Toronto skyline pictures feature the city's many waterways, such as the Humber River, Don River, Rouge River and Toronto Harbour. Located on the northern shore of Lake Ontario, city growth is attributed to the ease of transportation and shipping along Great Lakes trade routes, allowing it to easily transport deeper into Midwest North America or east, to the Atlantic Ocean.
One of its greatest tourist attractions is the 1,815 foot tall CN Tower, 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. Other famous landmarks include First Canadian Place, the Canadian Trust Tower, and Scotia Place. Rogers Centre is another famous city landmark, home of the Toronto Blue Jays of Major League Baseball. The stadium is the former home of the Toronto Argonauts of the CFL, and the Toronto Raptors of the NBA. In the past, the Buffalo Bills played at the stadium for up to 8 games per season. The dome of Rogers Centre is difficult to miss with its unmistakable, glowing purple roof.
A city with a large number of immigrant residents, Toronto pictures display one of the world's most cosmopolitan cities and an important center for Canadian immigration. With half 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.
