I was surprised to see this as an "attraction" for Toronto, but maybe I was wrong upon reflection. Walking up from the Lake one passes a myriad of neighbourhood slices, the financial district with it's towers of "gold," the shopping destinations of The Bay, Saks and the Eaton Centre; Dundas Square exhibitions and events, North of Wellesley just West of...

This is a primary route to follow when seeing the center of Toronto. It encompasses prime shopping, dining and is a main thoroughfare to get from here to there.

The longest street in Canada, and one of the few that enjoys US style violence. Lots of shopping variety.

We were staying in a hotel in Jarvis street right around the corner from yonge street. We walked it all the way from Carlton down to the waterfront via dundas square. So what's all the fuss about ? We really don't know. Lots of shops and eateries along this road, some nice, some not. Some neat, some run down. We... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
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 Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in 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 vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
