The Distillery District is an internationally acclaimed village of brick-lined streets and dozens of vibrantly restored Victorian Industrial buildings. It’s one of Ontario’s hottest tourist attractions and home to live theatres, galleries, fashion, design and jewelry boutiques, unique cafes and award-winning restaurants. It’s all completely closed to traffic and just a few minutes walk from downtown Toronto.

Many things to do see such as art, chocolate store, and Mill St. Brewery. You can take a tour that explains how the Distillery District started and I found it interesting. Can take trolley nearby or walk up to King to get on one.

Visited the place unfortunately in April when it was raining but can imagine the activity it must be having in summer. Good place to basically chill, have a meal/drink and spend the day. Would like to see it first hand in summer too

We wandered the streets and some shops. Had lunch in the area as well. Cool area, too bad the weather wasn’t better. There are lots of places with outdoor patios so it would be a great location to go on a nice day.

Downtown
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.
