Who knew there would be a mall and subway system connected the tunnels of underground Toronto!?! I spent an hour locating it and about 5 exploring and then finding several interesting shops (some on the 'sidewalk')...how cool.

You can walk miles underground all with food, shopping and safe. Protected from the weather you can walk all over and not battle the street traffic and weather. It was a mile from our hotel to air canada centre and the walk was great.

Had fun with the Path when we were here in the summer and again now it's a little chillier. Great fun as an activity on its own. A hidden Toronto.

Love the concept of this. It's amazing that there is a whole world underground that means life doesn't stop when the weather is bad. We have gave been to Toronto twice and we still get lost in the Path. It's very confusing to us! Sure if you use it regularly IT becomes second nature navigating your way around the city... More

I've lived in Toronto nearly all my life and I never even knew this existed. Went walking around when the weather was all sucky... one can only watch so much netflix. BF and I ended up walking around and honestly it was just like a big mall. Tons of stuff to do, lots of places to grab a bite. Toronto... More

I love The Path. It is so convenient in bad weather to be able to walk blocks to where you are going without being outside. Tons of fast food options and all your shopping staples and banking etc. Make sure you go underground to The Path. It's very civilized and very safe. It's like a city right under the city.... More

what shopping centre closes on a weekend ,,,,,,Saturday and Sunday???????? This area is not particularly well advertised or sign posted as I expect for shopping it has been overtaken by The Eaton Center. We discovered it more by luck that judgement and it only warranted two minor paragraphs in our guidebook. We made the mistake of visiting the first time... More

Not sure when this was started but its a series of undergound areas hooked together with shopping,eating,subway,etc. Loved this and walking along seemed to just fly. I think it says over 30 km. so far. Must be great in cold winter times

Last time we used the PATH was in deep Winter in 2001!! Ideal in snow and ice. We ventured down a couple of times on this years Summer trip because once you get oriented it is a quicker way to walk between some of the downtown areas plus you'll discover shops, cafes and food stores that may not be above...

The path is interesting. I thought we we're going to get lost but we didn't. It's crazy they have like a million different levels it feels like your up but then there's one more escalator. And then there's the mall there to. Path is connected to the subway, resturants, shopping. It's crazy but a sight to see when your in... More

Staying in Downtown West

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
