The Distillery Historic District is special in that the site is beautifully restored with some great little shopping gems such as Soma Chocolate. This is not to be missed by anyone. A little pricey but there are some items you can buy under ten dollars....More

Visited on a Thursday during the day before 5pm. It was still very crowed. Most of the places with alcohol was not open. Beautiful decorations and lots of unique gift ideas. I bought Spiced Whisky marmalade from Widly delicious and Maya Chili chocolate from Soma.

The historic architecture, art studios, and sculptures would be worth visiting if not for the throngs of narcissistic smartphone users that clog the cobble stoned streets particularly during the Christmas Market and Light festival. If "selfies" are your thing then by all means head on...More

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

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.
