Toronto is Amazing

Is there an american city where you can get this kind of vibe outside of NY?

I love it here, how walk-able it is, how big it is, how pretty all the girls are and how many of them there are, how clean it is, the lack of street people bothering you or thugs making people scared. I love the Canadian culture here, mainly how polite it is and how much they care for others well being (ie: universal healthcare). There was a guy passed out on the street(looked homeless) and someone called the ambulance..I've never seen that in ATL or LA..

Police presence isn't near as prominent as I thought it would be, but I guess it isn't really needed. Construction is insane, I guess they don't build stuff in the winter but good lord the amount of cranes I see is insane.

Reminds me of a way bigger Chicago, but everyone is more polite. I'm just curious if there is an american counterpart to this, LA certainly didn't do it.

Not an american counterpart, but I've heard tokyo is similarly amazing, like an uber clean NYC.

If you want hotter girls...way hotter girls: Montreal.

The vibe you speak of is any major city in Canada really.

One of my favorite vacations was a week just hanging out in Toronto, we had so much fun. It just seemed like a beautiful city where people are friendly and everything makes sense.

Vancouver, BC is very nice as well. If you're ever there be sure to check out Granville St. for all the bars and clubs.

I've always loved Chicago for the sports and teh city itself. But Toronto is just the cleaner version, and everyone is so polite..its almost a culture shock coming from the Southern US. How big and clean and walk-able this city are major pluses for me, the downtown core of buildings seems similar to Chicago, but with nicer people and less street trash(people and litter).

Canada seems to do stuff that aligns with the rest of the world that the US seems too retarded to figure out. From pot legislation, gay marriage, the people's attitudes alone..like I live in the nice part of ATL and can walk the streets for about 2 miles before it gets to the hood and you get hassled(same is true in Chicago). Here I can walk forever in all directions at all times of the night and never have to deal with that. It's like they nailed all the police nice human beings here.

Buddy and I are half way though our 6 day stretch here and we got a hotel in northern downtown. I LOVE how walk-able it all is, I like the public transit here (way bigger, privately funded like MARTA, runs 24/7 etc).

If you're having trouble with that then maybe you should be in a different part of ATL... San Francisco is safe through and through, the worst it gets is the tenderloin, which is just a bunch of harmless bums. Now cross the bay bridge and you have a different story.

Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, all of them. San Francisco isn't this large, and the people aren't this polite. I like SF but people are up their own asses too much..TO people are just genuinely nicer people, or at least they come off that way.
