Toronto ranked 10th on Lonely Planet's 2015 travel list

Toronto has been ranked the 10th most desirable travel destination in 2015 by Lonely Planet, the popular publisher of international travel guides. Rather than noting some the more cliched traits Toronto is known for, the guide references specific events and developments that will have an impact next year. Here's the blurb:

"This multicultural megalopolis promises to be extra vibrant in 2015. An estimated 250,000 visitors will arrive for the Pan American Games. Public works projects have advanced, including the Union Pearson Express train, which will whizz passengers from Toronto's airport to downtown in 25 minutes. 2015 will be another massive year for Toronto's drool-worthy restaurant scene. And the influences of nearby New York and Montreal keep things cutting-edge, with live music thriving in grassroots bars."

Ok, so it's still Lonely planet. The reference to Montreal and New York is a bit annoying, but the company in the top 10 is impressive. Other cities to get the nod include Washington DC, El Chalten, Milan, Zermatt, Valletta, Plovdiv, Salisbury, Vienna, and Chennai. Yup, Toronto's the second North American city on the list. Let your heart swell with pride.
