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

You have to go down there and check it out. It's a huge entire mall with 1700 places all underground. I can imagine in the wintertime it's a great place for shopping

The Path was very difficult to find, it really needs better signposting. The part of it we did see wasn't great, no shops that we wanted to visit. It would probably be a good place to visit if it's rainy outside, but there are plenty of better places to visit (in my opinion).

A definite need for better signs as very easy to get lost without a map! A couple of friendly Torontonians got us back on the right direction again.

The places inside closed early and there wasn't much that kept me intrigued. There wasnt a single store I would have liked to go in and shop at. Super crowded and underground. PATH is good to visit and have something to do on rainy days.

This has to be one of the most poorly marked locations I have ever traveled through. We left the Hilton heading for the Hockey Hall of Fame...probably the most significant landmark in Toronto. We were one turn away from the Hall before we saw a sign telling us where to go. On the return trip, there were no signs on... More

Somebody got it right in Toronto -- a whole shopping mall and some other services (dental, fitness and legal offices) all underground stretching 32 blocks north to south. Not sure how many blocks east to west. Convenient maps/signage guide will direct you. Very interesting concept and of course the place to be in inclement weather. Lots of food available from...

This is a perfect way to shop downtown, especially if it is very cold outside. It is all underground and connected. You could even get lost :-)

I'm not fond of The Path. Maybe on winter when temperature is excesive, it's a nice thing to visit and keep warm to cross from one place to another. Good thing is that there are many places to eat but on the other hand... they need better signing and directions for people that are not from the area.

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.
