I came for the Doors Open event; but there were multiple weddings happening. There were several a cappella groups performing for the SING competition. Lots of families of all ages enjoying the restaurants; shopping; art galleries; street art; and theatre.

Went to the area after a day of a conference. Fun area. Beautiful cobblestone streets, pedestrian only, cool renovated buildings. Shops, restaurants. It was worth the visit.

This is a lovely part of Toronto. Great group of shops, bars, galleries etc. A little out of the way but still easy to get to.

I could not say that the Distillery is one of the best places in Toronto. Yes there are little art galleries and cafes, but it is not very interesting. Maybe at summer time it is better. But for a little walk is ok.

Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination

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
