Beautiful pedestrian-only District with a lot of boutiques, art galleries, and restaurants. However, crowded and lacks to diversity in restaurants..On the other hand Toronto's Light Festival was a nice winter experience.

We are so happy that we took the time to check out this neighborhood in downtown Toronto. We loved it so much that we spent two full evenings window shopping, having dinner, snacks and enjoying the beautiful outdoor art installation exhibit!

Nice light displays but not festive. Quite on a Friday night. At least parking was not a problem. Not worth a special trip.

Nice place to walk around and check out the shops. I HIGHLY recommend doing a segway tour of the area. Check out the heart at the entrance area. Beautifully decorated in the summer with all sorts of flowers, and in the winter with twinkling lights....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

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.
