Toronto's Financial District is a taste of corporate Canada with its imposing skyscrapers for companies such as Canada Life. The best place to see it is from the CN Tower. Although it is a business district you will also find high end and mid range...More

The streets are always busy! Beware that you don't bump into someone. During rush hours the streets are very busy. I think Financial District is the heartbeat of Toronto.

So many people above and below ground. It's great for people watching. Suits everywhere! There is also a lot of homeless people on the streets in this area, they never bother you but it's sad to see

Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner
Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the
outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is
celebrated by a number of monuments and museums,
giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier
destination for modern art, people here stroll through
the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy
the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe
