Essentials: Toronto, from what's new to classic attractions

Grab your toque (what Canadians call a wool hat) and get your game face on if you're heading for the NBA All-Star Game in the 6ix —a term coined by rapper Drake, Toronto's unofficial ambassador, for his hometown.

The 6ix, referring to the city's six jurisdictions, is just one of several nicknames for Canada's largest city and financial hub, along with T-dot, Toranna and Toronto the Good. And don't forget #WeTheNorth, the marketing slogan promoted by Toronto's basketball team, the Raptors. Whatever you call it, Toronto's multicultural, cosmopolitan vibe is likely to warm you up so fast that you'll be thinking #YouTheNorth before you know it.
