Reminded me very much of being in New York City, except not as easy to figure out, and not quite as epic as Times Square, but the vibe was great over all, we walked around, spent some money in the mall and had a good day.

Always active day and night it is the heart of Toronto the longest street in North America. Park somewhere and walk the real Toronto.

Yonge Street probably has a place for everything you could possibly be looking for. Malls, restaurants, boutiques, etc. and it it goes on for miles and miles.

This street is a main vien of Toronto down town, the place is usually crowded, nearby are underground parkings and some of Toronto events are expressed there. A visitor to Canada should go there at least once.

While there are some great little stores, coffee shops and restaurants, Yonge St. isn't what it used to be. There are more empty spaces than I remember. I hope it comes back to it's glory days.

Lots of restaurants, high-end shops and low-end shops. People watch was fun because it was filled with college students, professionals, and all kinds of lifestyles.

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...

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.
