Plenty of places to eat and imbibe. Beautiful art pieces. Friendly Canadian international atmosphere. Highly recommended for US tourists and ex Pat's. Yes, there is a commercial flair but it's a positive one with a fantastic little antique shop.

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
