Have used this excellent underground walkway to get around downtown Toronto on cold or rainy days but on weekends, it is pretty much just a sidewalk. Been a while since I have been in it during the work week as we use it to get down to the Rogers Centre for weekend games. Nearly every store is closed so even... More

My wife and I got lost a few times in the PATH, but that's ok as you just end up seeing more shops that you probably would've missed otherwise. If it's cold or wet outside, this is how you navigate Toronto's CBD. It's a whole underground city network.

Booked our hotel for a weekend visit because it was located on the PATH and being wheelchair bound would be able to stay out of the bad weather. We we soooooooooo wrong. On the weekend many of the corporate office buildings/stores are closed and there is no access to the PATH. This effectively cuts you off from other parts of... More

The Path is huge! Every time I am in it I get confused. You almost need help getting around there! Always finding great food in the Path, my favorite area is near the Eatons Center. Lots of high end foods and shopping there. Great to get from parking areas, subways to your destination without going above ground. You avoid the... More

Walking around Toronto I wondered why there where not that many people. Then we found the PATH. Its in the Guiness book of records and is certainly worth a walk around underground as I don't think you will find its like anywhere else. Easy to get lost

They have told me about it but I hadn't seen it, all the time I have been here. It had to be really cold for me and my friends to just find a spot to go underground at the city hall square. And voila, we discovered The Path. It is an underground maze of stores, retail paradise and major chains... More

If you're visiting downtown Toronto on cold or rainy days duck into The Path and you will find an underground city of tunnels and building concourses that connects most of the downtown core. You can shop, eat, see movies or just explore for hours without ever putting your coat on or taking your umbrella out. You can also access the... More

17km of basically a city under the city? How cool! If you don't want to brave the cold this is for you. Truly fascinating!

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.
