Toronto is the tenth best city to visit in 2015, according to Lonely Planet

Lonely Planet has just released its list of the top-ten best cities to visit in 2015, and humble Toronto has managed to secure itself the bottom spot. As justification for our tenth-place ranking, the travellers’ guide mentions the upcoming 2015 Pan Am Games and all the associated infrastructure projects. (Come to Toronto! See our overpriced airport train!) Also mentioned: the CN Tower’s Edgewalk, the Toronto Islands, the Eaton Centre and our city’s “drool-worthy” restaurant scene. The write-up adds a note of caution about our “ubiquitous condo towers, ageing megahighways and lack of a unifying architectural theme.” Fair enough.

Who’d we beat? Nobody. We’re dead last.

Who beat us? Plovdiv (6), “Bulgaria’s second city,” which apparently has “smouldering nightlife” and “remarkable ruins.” Other honourees include Valletta, Malta (5) and Milan, Italy (3). The number-one city is Washington D.C.
