Yonge Street is so much fun to just walk down. True it is different than when I was there in the 80's but it still has all the great entertainment that I remember. I could only eat at so many restaurants but want to go back and try more.

This part of Toronto is truly a fun and shoppers' haven. When the weather is inclement use the amazing tunnel system that will get you in comfort and safety to any of the many shops and major mall destinations!

This street used to have many popular stores between the waterfront and Bloor Street. The only upscale stores remaining are close to the Eaton Centre. There are lots of homeless people in the area

Pretty much your basic main drag. Has a wide range of shops and dining options. Was there during the day, and it felt pretty safe. Not a bad place/area to use as a base of operations.

The worlds longest street does not dissapoint. Everything from coffee shops to cheap pizza or clothing stores. I have walked the street a fair bit in the summer and am always surprised at the new places I find. Go during the day in the downtown Bay / Bloor area if you want to see some local yokels in action (street... More

This is the heartbeat of Toronto. Longest street in the world with lively attractions. From shopping to entertainment to restaurants, you name it and its on this street. At night it is amazing. Superb and active night life.

Reminded me very much of being in New York City, except not as easy to figure out, and not quite as epic as Times Square, but the vibe was great over all, we walked around, spent some money in the mall and had a good day.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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 vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
