A great spot to while away an afternoon. Great for families, couples or flying solo. My husband and I took in a play that was excellent. The restaurants serve good food at reasonable prices and there are interesting shops and galleries for brousing! Christmas is...More

Haven't been here in a year. But it's always nice to walk around & peek inside the shops. Lots of cool shops.

Really enjoyed the Christmas market. I find weeknights and first thing in the day best. The kids enjoyed Santa this year and it's a great opportunity to get in to the spirit of Christmas.

i live in this city and never found the hipster love of this place very authentic or worth the bizarre drive to get there

Enjoyed the newest attraction to the Distillery Districk - the 1st ever Toronto Light Fest. Great light displays, interesting and engaging. A little bit for every age group to enjoy. For couples, for travellers, for families, for explorers - check it out!

Perhaps it was the fact we visited in January, or maybe just wrong time wrong place, but while the area itself had charm and character, it seemed dull and quiet. While we didn't expect it to be bustling with crowds, the shops were sporadically scattered...More

Didn't see what all the fuss was about. Don't go at night, (even to the light show - very disappointing compared to the hype). Most of the strores were closed, lighting was poor. Bricks were real. If you like bricks - go.

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

Parking is a bit of a challenge anytime but during the week the south west parking lots are a good place to start . There is some street parking North and east of the east entrance but usually very scarce.

If it's art galleries you want, Queen West might be a better bet. It's a stretch of Queen St. west of downtown. TripAdvisor won't let me post a link, but google "Queen West galleries" for what's happening at the moment... More
