Unless you like LOTS of garish nean advertising and chaos of a major street intersection in a busy downtown I'd stay away from this. Times Square, or Picadilly Circus it's not! There is little character except for Dundas Square on the SE corner. Most locals just try to get through the crowds to someplace else!

Incredibly busy and difficult to walk around. Also surrounded by so many homeless people its very sad to see the hundreds of people walk by and pay them no mind, especially during the cold weather.

With the enormous mall on one side and a movie theater an another, Yonge-Dundas Square is very popular (great place to grab a Hop-On, Hop-Off Bus) and very useful.

If you need to meet people it's a good place to start, close the the subway and bunches of restaurants and stores.

I happened to be there on a day when there were bands performing and everything was so festive,so I certainly enjoyed my time there.People were singing and dancing,lots of kiosks around offering drinks and bites,all of that adds a lot to the holiday mode

This area is the Times Square of Toronto. Big mall, lots of shopping, ample restaurant selection and close to some major theaters. We were there over a weekend and the central square area hosted different events on both days. When the square isn't in use for festivals or concerts, it has a fun fountain feature.

A Midnight wander (still running on Vancouver time) led us to the lights of the Yonge-Dundas square. This is a large public space, and at midnight and beyond, attracts an interesting mix of individuals - "snake guy" with his two boa constrictors, a guy doing street magic, a few break-dancers slammin it. Late night teens, looking for a place to... More

We stayed at a hotel down town and wondered through the square at about 9.00pm. Lots of people. Interesting to see everyone going about their business. Lots of Big screens

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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 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.
