Google ranks Toronto one of world's must-visit cities

Where should you go on your next vacation? For many would-be travellers scouring Google and YouTube for ideas, apparently one of the top three answers is Toronto.

According to the intriguing sounding Travel Trends 2016: Data Reveals Hot Spots and New Consumer Insights Google report, Toronto is an emerging hot spot for those looking to get away.

Toronto is amongst a short list of cities "getting a groundswell of interest" following Google and YouTube searches during the first half of this year. The other destinations are Reykjavik, Havana, Mexico City and Tokyo.

Apparently the audience most likely to be interested in visiting Toronto are male hockey fans (no surprises there) between the ages of 25 and 34.
