The bricks and stones of the former "distillery" give the feeling of history, while the trendy shops, cafes, galleries and theatre make it the perfect place to spend an afternoon.This is one of my favourite places to visit and revisit all year round.

We visited the Distillery with friends and enjoyed the Christmas atmosphere. The decorations were first class with Christmas Trees stalls Carol Singers and mulled wine. This is recommended

I thought it was going to be 100% tourist bait. But there is a good feel on the neighbourhood, also some nice pubs and cafes. Worth a visit.

Many things to do see such as art, chocolate store, and Mill St. Brewery. You can take a tour that explains how the Distillery District started and I found it interesting. Can take trolley nearby or walk up to King to get on one.

Visited the place unfortunately in April when it was raining but can imagine the activity it must be having in summer. Good place to basically chill, have a meal/drink and spend the day. Would like to see it first hand in summer too

So outside of the yummy bakery, plenty of coffee ops, and pricey stores, the best part I found was the artwork outside. Plenty of chances to take pics. If I wasn't with the family, I would have wanted to try the whiskey flight at the...More

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

There is a paid parking next y o the Christmas market. If you parked in the paid parking area I am sure there will be disabled parking space.

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.
