Great addition to Toronto for food lovers, music lovers, architecture and history lovers and just lovers of this great city and it's people - worth the walk (even in 30 degree heat from downtown lol)!

Take a step back in time as you walk off the cobblestone streets and into old brick buildings that used to house whiskey distilleries. However, when you walk through the doors of these classic buildings now, you'll find funky art, indie restaurants and high end...More

Fantastic place to visit with its small shops and restaurants and the big huge metal spider and the big red heart. Sadly the padlocks stand has been squashed and reduced in size! But the area is still nice to visit especially during Christmas time for...More

Great place to visit and take a leisurely stroll on a beautiful day. Many fantastic restaurants to choose from but tends to get busy during certain times of the year. Worth the effort & visit!

With over 6,000 reviews not sure I can say anything new about this amazing attraction but it’s easy to see why it’s ranked #10 out of 521 attractions! We walked into 95% of the shops there, and over a period of two days bought something...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University

flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of

Parking is a bit of a challenge anytime but during the week the south west parking lots are a good place to start . There is some street parking North and east of the east entrance but usually very scarce.

If it's art galleries you want, Queen West might be a better bet. It's a stretch of Queen St. west of downtown. TripAdvisor won't let me post a link, but google "Queen West galleries" for what's happening at the moment... More
