Lots of shops around in this mainly chinatown area. Great if you are looking for souvineers to take home - much cheaper than the main shopping areas. Very busy area. Couple of small malls in the area and links into kensington market

From Casa Loma, Kensington Market, Chinatown, all the way down to the music garden Spadina is a lively street! Based on only a few days observation I’d call it the most diverse street in town! As noted in my other reviews of this area (Chinatown,...More

We visited the area on the tram. It cuts thorough Chinatown, hence a lot of cheap souvenir shops,ethnic shops, places to eat. You can easily walk through it and end up near the CN Tower.

This is one of the most famous streets in Toronto and it is peppered with very interesting stores ranging from cheaply priced Chinese stores for souvenirs to LCB store selling a full range of wine and beers.

Travelling along Spadina Avenue is easy thanks to the TTC streetcars that on routes such as 510 have frequent trips. The road is also the easy way to find Chinatown. Planting trees would improve its look.

Busy street, little parking, it is simply a way to get from one place to another. If you can find a different way to get to where you want to go use it.

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
