Best Cities In North America


The Top Ten

1 Toronto, Canada Toronto, Canada Toronto is the most populous city in Canada, the provincial capital of Ontario, and the centre of the Greater Toronto Area, the most populous metropolitan area in Canada.

It's a good city so I think that Toronto is the best in Canada and NYC in America

Canada is the best part of North America. If you disagree you are brainwashed.

Toronto is a cleaner safer nyc. And cheaper

Anyone who says Toronto is better must be drunk - JC123

3 Chicago, United States

Chicago is the best

lol crime - Merggy

4 Montreal, Canada Montreal, Canada

It's better than Toronto and Vancouver lol. Toronto is just condos and Vancouver has no real summers and it rains. Montreal is half-north american and half-european

Best Canadian city, it's the most historical city in North America (first metropolitain in North America) and still remains 8th most populated city in North America, as well as having the biggest underground city in the world, it also hosts the annual Formula 1

America's best kept secret.

I have lived there for a year! place is a crumby and boring...

5 Vancouver, Canada

Vancouver is a big city but still has amazing scenery. Mountains, ocean, rivers and beaches. Toronto is a good city, but to many people and lots of hobos. Montreal is also good, but the city literally smells like pot. Vancouver is cultural and just amazing. No other city in the top five largest Canadian cities has whales, or even ocean for that matter...

WOW! Vancouver is so beautiful

I love Vancouver canada.

BORN and raised
