What a wonderful idea - wish more metropolitan areas would have something similar! This underground network is a path to almost everywhere - it connects building to building in the metro downtown area, includes underground shopping areas and connects to above ground shopping as well. Hotels, attractions, restaurants all accessible underground - and out of the elements. We were there... More

I happened upon this the first night in town as I used google maps to plot a pedestrian path to an attraction in preparation for our morning activities. Google maps gave an odd path - on the PATH. So I found the entrance from the Hilton that evening and explored it a ways (shops were mostly closed). We used it... More

This is built to provide a way of getting around the city when the weather is bad. It could do with some better signposts and a few maps. When it reaches a station or shopping centre it can be difficult to find the right direction

We visited a part of "The Path", whilst on a walking tour of Toronto. It really is an "underground city" with wide walkways linking a number of major buildings over a wide area of the city. The underground routes, lined by shops and food outlets also link to metro stations. It avoids the weather elements at the surface area with... More

It's really cool where you can get almost everything without even having to go on the streets! On bad weather day, you don't just need to stay in your hotel room. However, took some time to understand the system and not get lost all the time. Then again, it might just be me. But, kudos to the locals who were... More

The PATH is a really cool place because it is so big and links so many buildings and contains so many shops and plazas. It's great to walk underground when it's really hot outside or really cold and snowy outside. You can see first hand how busy it gets during rush hour when people in formal clothes come down from...

Most professionals who work in downtown take the Path for granted. We use it every day in the summer to avoid the heat and humidity. We use it in the winter to avoid snow and cold wind. Visitors to Toronto can experience a wonderful underground pathway of hotels, stores, restaurants, banks, food courts, etc. The pathway goes from the Air... More

We joined the path near our hotel which was in old Toronto. The entrance was through a shopping centre and we found it easily enough. Everywhere we went we ended up following a PATH We walked through the railway station, Air Canada centre, office blocks and tunnels. It is full of food courts, shops, coffee stops, dentists, hairdressers and everything... More

The path is a very good option to move within downtown Toronto in bad weather. It is also clean and has many amusing shops and cafes. The only problem is that you can easily lose your way within its mazes. The sogns are not very helpful. Also, there is always ongoing construction activities.

My husband and I were keen to show off the "world's largest underground mall" to our teenagers. Looking at the map it had grown substantially since I travelled it for work over a decade ago. We were looking forward to checking out the changes ourselves. Our daughter summed it up well identifying that 'it's a massive underground food court'. There... 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.
