Great place to visit and take a leisurely stroll on a beautiful day. Many fantastic restaurants to choose from but tends to get busy during certain times of the year. Worth the effort & visit!

The distillery district is a unique place where you can enjoy a variety restaurants, events, galleries, theatre, residences, brewery to a Saki tour... amongst a historic district in Toronto. It gets high marks for effort to keep this historic district relevant and fresh.

This is a side of Toronto that we are glad we explored. The shops and galleries are high end and beyond our budget, but the historic restoration and re-use of the distillery are worth seeing.

This was a cute little area with shops and restaurants. Personally, there wasnt much here that fit my taste as far as shopping is concerned but I guess it might be a good place for some. Most of the shops didn't really feel like they...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

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.

If it's art galleries you want, Queen West might be a better bet. It's a stretch of Queen St. west of downtown. TripAdvisor won't let me post a link, but google "Queen West galleries" for what's happening at the moment... More
