This is probably the best spot in Toronto. I love the feel of the old town and there are tons of restaurants and cafes in this area. If you head to Toronto don’t forget to stop by the distillery district!

Variety of upscale shops, snacks and liqour. A brewery (although expensive) and a distillery (really expensive). $50 for a bottle of craft whiskey? Ah, no.

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 was there on a cold spring day.... by end of April 2018... unusually cold as I was said, and it was extremely calm with just a few shops opened.
