    In January we stayed in a hotel around the vicinity of Yorkville Village.The neighborhood has chic cafes and bars and fine-dining restaurants.

    I understand its posh hotels host Hollywood insiders during the Toronto International Film Festival.

    The three main museums namely Royal Ontario Museum, Gardiner and Bata Shoe Museum are all located in this neighborhood which makes this area really one of the best place to visit in Toronto.

    There is a nice neighbourhood called The Annex, with little shops and restaurants very close to the centre area.

    I absolutely love this temple, and have been visiting it regularly since I discovered it in 2006. The space is soaring, and the atmosphere extremely peaceful, yet vibrant and alive. I miss this year Janmastami Vibe and festivity

    We went to novo spa with my husband and did the face and body organic care for couples. We had Angela and Timea, it was just great! It is probably our best experience among the few we have done so far! We will come back!

    Located in the bustling downtown area of ​​Toronto,at the corner of Bloor Street West and Avenue Road, this little church was built in 1871 and is a Neo-Gothic building. It opened on June 15, 1879. Beautiful church, however not overly ornate. Very close to subway. In fact it looks a bit as if the surrounding modern buildings could choke a small church. Worth a visit when you are in the area.

    On my tour of the galleries in Yorkville Loch Gallery was a great surprise! Beautiful space to showcase some amazing Canadian artists. I was very impressed with the selection of current as well as historic artists. The staff were so friendly and took the time to show us some pieces from an artist we favoured. They were so enthusiastic about there family owned business and how they are represented in Winnipeg and Calgary. They have a guest book where you can sign up for up coming shows and info from the gallery. A few hours later I received an email with my own login to Loch gallery, a place to have information on who I am and which artists I am interested in.

    My partner and I had an amazing experience here! Easily one of the best escape rooms in Toronto. The puzzles were clever and challenging, but always had a logical conclusion. Not to mention the aesthetics were lovely. 20/10 would recommend giving Mysterious Minds a try!

    Established in 1962, Mira Godard Gallery is one of Canada's most important commercial galleries. There are three floors of space featuring paintings, sculpture, prints and photographs. Currently they are featuring Colin Fraser, who does beautiful land and cityscapes.

    Located just 2 streets up from the Royal Ontario Museum, this was an easy place to find. It is a small gallery on Yorkville that has been around since 1983. They feature contemporary fine art ranging from original paintings, photography, sculptures and limited edition prints.

    If you are a fan, this is a nice diversion esp seeing some work that is not tied to his children's book (though they have that also) and a bit more mature in theme. For me, this is a gallery I would check out out if they are featuring the work of someone I am interested in (like Dr Suess) but if this is your style, it is a nice clean store.

    They have the Art of John Lennon coming in February.

    Towering over the vibrant Yorkville neighbourhood, the design-centric Four Seasons Hotel offers a melange of luxurious amenities enveloped in a sophisticated architectural setting. Accommodations are gorgeous, authentic French food authored by Chef Daniel Boulud is served, the hotel offers convenient access to designer shopping , museums, restaurants, all that Toronto has to offer.....and to relax the body, mind and soul after a hectic shopping spree...there is the Spa.

    Ah....the Spa ...the Four Seasons Spa which features an indoor swimming pool, comfy lounge chairs, whirlpool, sauna room, relaxation room, massive spectacular change rooms and a high-tech gym with an adjoining yoga studio so I can do my 'sun salutation'......there is just a ton of wellness amenities here. The facility maintains the swanky demeanour of the hotel proper with it's lavish luxe aura and yet promotes an overall soothing ambience with its neutral tones. This vast wellness 'farm' weighs in at 30,000 sq. ft. (you can't feel claustrophobic here) embraces 16 treatment rooms including a luxury couples suite and a salon with hair, manicure, and pedicure stations. The roster of treatments is exhaustive with seemingly every imaginable kind of ritual available.....as with some fruity exotic treatments like the Ruby Red Grapefruit Scrub....sounds like breakfast to me. Being a spa novice, I choose my go-to treatment in the form of a massage......great stuff as I emerged from the session in a cloud-like state ready for life anew.

    If you are a fan of the sport of Spa-ing......keen for the finest spa treatment and experience with therapists dedicated to guest services of the highest standard .......
    .....then try the ..........Spa at Four Seasons.......Pampering Options Galore

    I was so impressed with their collection of art. Some of there historical pieces are exceptional. The gallery itself is very quaint. The art is displayed randomly throughout the gallery in unique spots. The staff were friendly and allowed us to view the work without interruption.

    I was visiting Toronto from New York on a family trip. I wanted to buy a few gifts for my family. I read about Holt Renfrew on line and was excited to bring my family to the store. The store carries luxury items for the ladies. The men's store is down the street. The store is also under heavy renovations and it may be a tad intimidating entering the store but the store has a friendly doorman who was a great help. He waved to my child and gave us water. He also knew the city really well. I entered the store and purchased some perfume and a purse for my wife. My daughter did not want anything and I got off easy. This store is full of all major luxury brands and is a gemstone in a large city. I can imagine it will be fantastic after the construction. Staff are pros in all departments and very helpful. I will return.

    This was a fun stop today. After looking at some of the paintings on the ground floor I was directed upstairs to where the gallery had some amazing work by Norval Morisseau. In fact, more than I have seen at the AGO! As well, they represent six other Indigenous artists, so they always have something beautiful on offer. Definitely worth a repeat visit.

    Walked into a beautiful space, saw pretty stuff on the walls. Then discovered that they do "larger print runs of limited edition art" (I am quoting their brochure). Perfect for your new condo.
