We had dinner in one of the beer pubs with craft beer. The area was very cute and the shops were unique! I wish we could have spent more time in this area- I would visit it again.

This is a delightful area and do enjoy a visit here. Lots of neat places and in the summer always a great place to sit out on a patio and enjoy a cold drink.

The Distillery District features historical buildings, cool shops, restaurants, and chocolate and beer makers. For a full history of the location book a Segway or Walking Distillery Tour with Go Tours.

We walked here from downtown and around the area. Ended up grabbing some beers at Mill Street Pub. The atmosphere is really nice and neat things to see in the streets. Great place to go for a walk when you have time.

I really loved this place. So much of the old district still remains. Old beams are still in some of the shops. There are plenty of eating places. Something to suit everyone. There are lots of lovely little, eclectic shops. Things are pretty expensive, but...More

The architecture adaptation is interesting, but this is mostly mid-to-upscale boutiques with nothing that differentiates it from many other industrial adaptations in many other cities.

This "recovered" industrial district was one of the biggest surprises in Toronto. A very charming district, with restaurantes, brewery bars, fency stores and beautiful cafés is the right place to be visited by the end of the day, specially during happy hours. Lots of beautiful...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

I plan on visiting Toronto in June and a friend recommended this place since I love art. Are there art exhibitions here? How long in advance do you know about what attractions will be present and is there a cost to view each of the attractions or just an overall entry cost?

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
