Every year, National Geographic releases its Best Trips issue, which features editorial choices for the best places to visit in the world.
This year, Toronto is the belle of the ball. Landing amidst some truly spectacular places like the Peruvian Amazon, Tahiti, Egypt, and more, Toronto was named one of the magazine’s seven cities worth visiting.
There are four categories on the list. “Cities” includes Toronto. Nature, Culture, and Adventure categories round out the total list to 28 destinations.
The magazine hopes to feature destinations that can “inspire, change perspectives, and connect us with cultures, places, and ideas that matter in the world.”
