How to invest in a city you don't live in?

I'm, admittedly, still comparatively new to real estate, so I apologize if this is a dumb question. I'm interested in starting to invest in cities I don't live in (especially since the city I do live in is insanely expensive). I'm, at the same time, a bit unsure of where to start. Admittedly a lot of my real estate knowledge comes from having just grown up in Toronto living in a CRE-working family, so I'm completely lost in markets I don't know first hand.
