We had no idea that this walkway system was so extensive! We were forced to learn how to navigate The Path during a recent trip to Toronto during deep freeze like conditions. Our first exposure to it was at 5pm on a weekday during "the exodus" of the downtown core. Not good!!We had a map, but didn't seem to have... More

This is the most innovative urban space in all of North America which came about because the municipality allowed all of its right of ways and underground transportation to be accessed by the downtown buildings. And the developers of the downtown city all jumped on Board and connected their buildings to the largest underground shopping "pathway" perhaps in the world.... More

Once you work out how it all works and where your going, what a wonderful experience - Total rat run at 0830 on a weekday morning - Very nice and warm when its minus 25 outside to get around everywhere.

Being in Toronto in winter the PATH is a welcome place to shop, eat and drink. Unfortunately, I didn't find it until late into our stay. A place I sure would like to explore some more. Be careful around going home time, it is full of people rushing to the train station.

OK, so, I have been to Toronto hundreds of times, but I was going solo to a conference in late November and didn't need to sightsee, wanted to keep my luggage to a minimum and was taking the train. I figured I could get from Union Station to the Sheraton and back after three days without ever going outside and... More

Toronto holds The Path! The Path is a huge confusing underground shopping cum eating area in Downtown Toronto that connects various buildings! A beautifully made place, The Path is truly amazing. It has hundreds of shops of all kinds and restaurants and food courts all housed underground! The Path is exceptionally useful during Toronto's sub-zero winters as people working in... More

There are just as many good things about The Path, as bad ones. I walk through it about once a month, usually when the weather is bad. What I like about The Path: It is an extensive underground network (30 km total length) that allows one to walk from Union Station in the south to the Atrium in the north.... More

This is the shopping place of all shopping places to me. I believe there were 4 or 5 levels. .. couldn't visit them all in one day. .. Rockport, Roots, Sephora, Shoppers mart, Guess, Victoria ' s secret, H & M, and many many more to choose from.

Like a mall but a lot less nice. It's a soul crushingly utilitarian commerce warren. It is genuinely akin to the experience of shopping at an airport but not even on the main concourse it's like the shops lining the travelators en route to the boarding gates. I don't know why people like it. It's definitely not a destination. Everything's... More

Lots of selection. Too bad the stores are mostly closed on Saturday. Most of the familiar chains plus some nice independent stores. The signage could be better - to show the route specifically for the Eaton Centre as many tourists ask for directions because they cannot figure out the maps.
