Back in the 60's this was hippy town that now got transferred to yuppy town. Not quite what it used to be because of all the construction and high-rise building going on.

great to walk around and visit the different small shops and the fancy small shopping centre. make sure you go for lunch or dinner in one of the cafes. if the weather is good i suggest to get an outdoor table. a place to watch fashion.it is a high class, european style street.

Love Yorkville as tons of unique shops and restaurants. Explore all around Yorkville and Cumberland streets. Stop for afternoon tea at the Four Seasons or Windsor Arms or hit the spa at various hotels or shops. Take in a movie or hit one of the bars offering music and bands.

We were driving guests from out of town through Toronto late at night and drove through Yorkville. It was lit up all over the place soon after Christmas was over. I hadn't been there in over 20 years and was pleasantly surprised at how much development there was and is now one of my favorite spots to go dine on... More

Yorkville is a nice area of Toronto to visit. During the week there are lots of shops available as well as restaurants to pick from any culture. Just bring your big wallet :)

Lots of unique stores and good restaurants. If not the most, one of the more expensive areas in TO. Some good restaurants however the location results in higher prices. Many well-heeled people frequent the area. One downside is some of the people you meet are showy, pay too much attention to brands and too interested in status/wealth.

Nice area. Lovely walks through university grounds. Try it, some cool buildings. Lots of high end shops if you like that sort of thing but character comes from the buildings along the street and churches dotted around.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its most stylish high-rise residences and heritage buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools, jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
