Picture perfect setting with a Toronto sign illuminated with vibrant colors. There are people taking pictures everywhere and it doubles as a skating rink during the winters. Can spend 20-30 minutes here.

Nathan Phillips Square and City Hall are one of the prime tourist spots in downtown Toronto. In the winter, people flock to go skating on the rink (a pool in summer) and enjoy some hot chocolate. You can rent skates and there is a change...More

This should be the Rockefeller Centre of Toronto but it is not because of the lack of vision of Toronto City Council and the bureaucrats who work there. There should be great programing, artistic events, music and beer & wine.

Really nice chilled out place, perfect time would be to go after 7pm, sign looks awesome lit up at night and not as many people compared to the daytime

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
