Great sporting venue, great show. My first ever basketball game. Really enjoyed it. Family friendly atmosphere. Pumping music, pyrotechnics, it had it all. Only downside it was expensive compared to say a UK football game. Lots of stoppages. Arena and experience was really good though.

Well, it is a sporting event venue, so certainly got what we asked for there. Drinks are ultra expensive - $19 for a glass of wine. And it wasn't something I'd rush to the liquor store for either.

I have seen several Toronto Raptor's games at the ACC and its a great venue no matter where you sit! Also- Raptor's games are so much fun. Highly recommend you check one out. Beware of expensive beer and food prices though!

The ACC is an easy place to access. Easy to park or get there by subway or train. It's clean and comfortable, so watching an event is great. In my opinion the acoustics could be better. Overall I enjoy watching any big event at the Air Canada Centre.

I say that it really depends what you watch and how much you pay. Like all sport attractions and musicall stuff, the more money you pay, the better experience you will get. I am a student and never had the crazy seats, so all my settings were in the top 1 to 2 rows of the acc. This meant I... More

Live sports and concerts at the Air Canada Centre. Ticket kiosks available for purchases on site . Everything from hockey to best known artists/groups. Worth a trip to see this centre.

Home to the Maple Leafs (ice hockey) and Raptors (NBA basketball), this sporting venue is adept in hosting sporting event and it shows that expertise during our visit for our first NBA game. We went with our three-year-old. The Centre was within an easy walk from the Union subway station and most of the walk was indoor as on the... More

Always a great time at the Raps Game - the vibe in the ACC is fantastic for Raptors games. The food is actually getting better and the beers - well it is what it is - gunna pay large for them. Overall a great venue to watch concerts, sports and other activities. The platinum lounge is also a favourite spot.

Staying in Downtown West

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
