“Some people call it a cultural mosaic. I prefer to call Toronto a beloved mishmash of a multitude of cultures from around the world,” says Doug O’Neill, who has biked, hiked and noshed his way through Toronto for 25 years and counting. “I can chow down in Koreatown, get swept up in the energy of a soccer game in a café in Little Italy and soak up Caribbean music at an outdoor park on a hot summer’s day.” Secret Toronto spot: Toronto Island in the dead of winter, preferably on the city-facing side of Algonquin Island, to get great views of Toronto at night. Instagram: @dougoneill
