Gwyneth Paltrow is a household name across the world. The actress is known for her work in Hollywood but in recent years has been making waves with her publication "Goop."
From beauty, sex and way more, Goop has earned itself a reputation as a top choice website when it comes to lifestyle content, and based on its latest article, we here in Canada cannot disagree.
That's right! Gwyneth Paltrow and her colleagues took time to create a brand new travel guide for the City of Toronto. While many get annoyed that Torontonians think the city is the centre of the universe, it seems like our worldwide recognition is hard to deny.
So what did Paltrow and her team have to say about the city? For starters, they mention the refreshing urban, yet small-town vibe that Toronto has to offer, going as far as calling it severely underrated for what it has to offer.
The article lists places to visit, such as the ROM, Scarborough Bluffs, AGO, and Kensington Market. Plus Paltrow gives tips on the city's hottest food and drink spots, top-notch accommodations, shopping, and a speciality section where it offers something unique!
Some of the actress and staff's recommendations are the same as any other Torontonian. Restaurants like Alo and Joso's are impossible to get into but the recommendation could not be more spot on to what you should really be eating for fine cuisine in Toronto.
The travel guide also suggested the St. Lawrence Market and Distillery District in their speciality section. Not only are those great recommendations, the Distillery District is actually home to the famous Christmas Market and Light Festival.
Considering those sites are so uniquely Toronto and have such a historical significance, it's nice to see them getting the recognition they deserve.
While Toronto may not be the centre of the universe, we're still excited to see it recognized by someone with such an international pull! Maybe it's time you plan a trip to the city.
