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.

Don't worry about the bad weather outside. walk through the underground "Path" which connects you to many restaurants, entertainment and shopping places. Locations or you see define signs point you to local attractions hotels and entertainment centers connected to the subway

Visit the PATH to know the shape of things to come. As cities grow, they will expand underground. Urban geography will be redefined. You can enter the PATH at various places in downtown Toronto. Just look for the signs. Navigation is easy, with signposts and compass points everywhere. You can even get maps of the system from tourist offices. The... More

In Toronto downtown save some time to visit the underground city. And use it. Faster than walking on the surface, no traffic lights. And if it's raining and/or cold, much better. It connects several buildings, hotels, metro stations. Many stores that you can find good prices. But don't forget to grab a map to better localize yourself. In the beginning... More

The concept of the PATH is interesting and even though we visited in summer, could sense how vibrant this would be in winter/colder months. There are more "tunnels" than you can possibly endure. The stores are much the same throughout. Doesn't quite stand up to the underground city of Montreal.

The PATH is a pedestrian walkway through downtown Toronto. it connects all the major buildings south of Dundas Street almost to the lake. There are hundreds of shops, restaurants and fast food spots along the way. It is a hub of activity during the week with thousands of office workers going to and from the high rise office towers connected... More

The PATH on Toronto is a pretty amazing place, with endless aisles and routes (30 Km plus) to browse and travel. In some ways, it feels more like a road with stores than it does an organized mall, and people use it for getting from one place to another more than to shop. We wandered around for a few blocks,...
