Ok it might sound strange but I find that you get a better idea of the size of all the buildings when they are all lit up at night. You can easily get dizzy walking around looking up them. You will find all the big financial players here. Some resturants dotted around as well.

Downtown Toronto: an interesting mix of old and new buildings. Much smaller than New York, but more accessible also easy to walk around and appreciate the atmosphere for yourself.

I decided to enter the Bank of Montreal Centre and go down the escalator, next thing I know I am on the PATH, a sign made out os 4 blue cubes, leading you through the underground pathway in the financial district! Treasures at every turn! If you get turned around lovely people, those in 'suits' will kindly give you directions!... More

No visit to Toronto is complete without visiting the Financial District. The center of this district is King and Bay. However, all these buildings are connected by a massive underground network known as "the path", which is ideal for getting around in bad weather. Visitors will likely require a map, http://www.toronto.ca/path/. You should visit this area during business hours, but... More

The reason I gave this area of tall bank buildings four stars are (1) there are some great restaurants in the area such as Reds and there is virtually an underground city under the financial district with shops and fast food restaurants, the underground `city`extends well beyond the financial district.

This is just a downtown, much, much smaller than that of New York, and not even much in comparison to Chicago. But there are a number of large and sometimes interesting skyscrapers. The Toronto-Dominion Centre was designed by Mies van der Rohe, though the bank could not resist adding to and diminishing the original. But Mies's vision was not entirely... More

Here you can see all the jazz and extravagance of a North American Metropolitan corporate/financial district. High end, tall and shiny skyscrapers that create Toronto's famous "post Card" image (besides the CN Tower and the Rogers Centre of course) are all here. You can see the impacts of big corporation's showy & lavish spending: From tall glass buildings to corporate... More

I love to people watch. This is a great area to watch as people scurry off to work or where ever they are going. You'll see very classy dressed Toronto people and the less fortunate in this area. Many little cafes and good upper end restaurants. Fun little shops in the underground subway tunnels.

During the summer often see studios recording scenes for movies. Once I drove and felt unusualy strange, and after realised, that all street signs are renamed, and street is full of yellow cabs, like in New York... Great place for tourists to wander and spend time.
