The distillery district is a bit deceiving as it’s not a prime brewery or distillery spot, rather that’s its history. But the few places we stopped for drinks was absolutely wonderful and delicious and the shopping in this area is very cute. It had a...More

This is a wonderful place to take a walk. there are a lot of shops and small restaurants/cafés. It also features an antique distillery, and you can see the remainings of it and an explanation of the alcohol process.

An old distillery that has been turned into restaurants and unique shops. It is a great place for a stroll on a nice day.

Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
