Oprah Named Toronto One of the Best Winter Getaways

Oprah Named Toronto One of the Best Winter Getaways

Need another reason to buy real estate in the GTA? Well, Oprah just gave you one.


When it comes to influential people in the world, few ranks as high as Oprah. Every year people wait for her to release Oprah’s Favorite Things, her official gift list. Brands hope to make it on it and people eagerly look to it to guide them when shopping.


Now Oprah has joined Travel+ Leisure and National Geographic magazine in naming Toronto one of the best vacation destinations.


Oprah Magazine released a list of 19 winter getaway destinations. Toronto came in at number 15! The post highlights Toronto’s amazing food and the upcoming Winterlicious event the city has every year. It also points out the city’s historical roots and the iconic CN Tower, which Uber recently said was one of the most popular tourist attractions.


The full blurb in Oprah Magazine reads: “A superb spot for foodies, put a liquid blanket on at the Toronto Winter Brewfest in early March. Plus, 200 restaurants are participating in Toronto’s major food event, Winterlicious. Enjoy three-course prix fixe lunch menus priced at $23, $28 and $33 and dinner menus priced at $33, $43 and $53. Restaurants start accepting reservations for the promotion on January 10.

History buffs can spend some time exploring The Royal Ontario Museum, which has over six million artifacts devoted to Canadian and world history. Also, check out the CN Tower, which defines Toronto’s skyline. This engineering marvel is an entertainment and dining destination, with a thrilling ride aboard glass elevators.

Stay at Hotel X Toronto, a luxury hotel on the Lake Ontario Waterfront downtown.”


Oprah only pointed out a few of the amazing things about Toronto. Most residents would also agree that the city is much more fun when it doesn’t feel like the Arctic outside, but year-round tourism is a great thing so we’re not complaining!
