Canada: Toronto, Ontario – Nathan Phillips Square, Toronto

The seat of government is also a fun place for tourists to hang out. Look for people inside the “O”. Look around the square for sculptures: Three-Way Piece No. 2 (The Archer) by Henry Moore, Oscar Nemon’s statue of Sir Winston Churchill and even a Roman column. If you’re looking to park your car, underneath is one of the world’s largest underground parking garages.
