Yonge-Dundas Square

Opened in November 2003 and enjoying a super location in Downtown Toronto, the Yonge-Dundas Square is an open-air public space that hosts events like weekly farmer markets, contemporary concerts, theatrical events, promotions, fireworks displays on holidays and community events. This is a great chance to experience the real spirit of Toronto.

Kensington Market

Known in the 1930s as the Jewish Market, Kensington today is an awesome display of the city's multi-ethnicity.

Chinatown

Although there are several Chinese districts in the Greater Toronto area, including the Don Valley Chinatown East, purists still refer to this one as the main Chinatown. On wide streets lined with bright lights, shops sell everything from medicinal herbs to take-out kung po gai ding. While some of the small shops hold form to more traditional ways, the Dragon City Shopping Mall at Dundas and Spadina is the ultimate East meets West shopping experience. The district is also restaurant rich and although some of them may look daunting to the uninitiated, the food is invariably excellent.

Path

Unlike much of the city, Toronto's financial district is compressed into a conveniently walkable area even in bad weather. That's thanks to the PATH, the "underground city" covering 28-kilometer (17-mile) of adjoining passageways under the streets and connecting to more than 1200 retail stores and services. If you are a little nervous about doing the trek alone, join one of the organized tours by private tour companies.

Distillery Historic District

Located near the city center in Toronto, the Distillery Historic District is a prominent area of the city where the Gooderham and Worts Distillery used to operate until 1990 CE. The distillery was touted as one of the biggest facilities in the world. After its closure, the Victorian-era buildings of the property became the Distillery District of today. Today, it houses many shops, restaurants and commercial complexes. However, the historic facade of the distillery is still intact and can be seen.

Queen Street West

A quelques pas de cette partie branchée de la ville se trouve le Ontario College of Art and Design. Les jeunes artistes issus de l'école avaient l'habitude de venir exposer leurs oeuvres dans cette rue, dans l'espoir de faire de bonnes affaires et de gagner de l'argent rapidement. Assez vite, de petits magasins remplis d'objets uniques, ont fleuri un peu partout et c'est ainsi que cette rue d'abord ennuyeuse devint un lieu très vivant. Aujourd'hui, vous pouvez y trouver des cadeaux inhabituels, des vêtements sympas ou de très vieilles bandes-dessinées que ce soit dans les magasins ou des gentils vendeurs de rue. Cette rue est aussi le lieu idéal pour les restaurants et les bars comme l'Epicure Cafe, le Rivoli et le Queen Mother Cafe.

Toronto Islands

A recreational wonderland that sits a mere 10-minute ferry ride away from Toronto Harbor, the Toronto Islands constitute a set of 15 small isles in the midst of Lake Ontario. The islands are connected to one another by pathways and bridges that can be traversed on foot. Sprawled across 820 acres (330 hectares) of the lake's expanse, the Toronto Islands are home to the Snake Island, the South Chippewa Island, Mugg's Island, and Forestry Island, with the Centre Island emerging as the biggest of the group. Away from the city's furious bustle, the islands offer a serene retreat with their car-free stretches, and are home to a plethora of landmarks including the Centreville Amusement Park, the clothing-optional Hanlan's Beach, a Frisbee golf course, and the Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport.
