The village of Yorkville was founded by entrepreneur Joseph Bloor in 1830. It became home to long-haired hippies in the '60s. In those days, some of Canada's finest musicians could be seen playing regularly in the Riverboat coffeehouse, including Gordon Lightfoot, Joni Mitchell and Neil Young. Today, Bloor-Yorkville offers some of the classiest hotels in the world including the Four Seasons-Yorkville, the Radisson Plaza and the Park Plaza Hotel. This village still remains one of the most popular tourist attractions in North America.--Erina Kelly
