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.

We made the mistake of leaving the Distillery District until our last evening in TO, and only managed to capture a snippet of what it had to offer (cool restaurants, breweries, design shops, original redbrick buildings, artwork). Definitely make this a must-see during your trip...More

The distillery buildings themselves are interesting and there is a critical mass of nice restaurants, coffee and dessert shops, and interesting stores. Nice place to spend 3-4 hours.

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

If it's art galleries you want, Queen West might be a better bet. It's a stretch of Queen St. west of downtown. TripAdvisor won't let me post a link, but google "Queen West galleries" for what's happening at the moment... More
