The Distillery District is an internationally acclaimed village of brick-lined streets and dozens of vibrantly restored Victorian Industrial buildings. It’s one of Ontario’s hottest tourist attractions and home to live theatres, galleries, fashion, design and jewelry boutiques, unique cafes and award-winning restaurants. It’s all completely closed to traffic and just a few minutes walk from downtown Toronto.

Crowded...very commercial...overpriced items and food...overrated. Not a relaxing place to be. Even trying to create a Chrismas ambience is ruined by the crowds, piped in music and prices. Would not recommend.

During the Christmas Holidays the Distillery District does it right. Vendors, decorations, food & drink. As well as a great atmosphere. If you go during the week i don't believe there is an admission fee, but on weekends there is. This is a great place...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.

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
