We entered The Path on a Saturday morning and didn't find much open. It looked like the usual mall, downtown shops and dining for the office crowd in the area we were in.

The PATH system is a 30 km (18 mile) set of interconnected underground shopping corridors that run through (under) the core of downtown Toronto. It links the basements of many of the city’s office towers and is so large it connects to the main rail station, seven subway stations, several hotels and two major sports venues. The “tunnels” are not... More

If it's cold or wet outside then you should not hesitate to visit the city under the city. All very nice and refurbished. Plenty of shopping opportunities. Also a great experience during warm weather conditions.

The PATH is an absolute delight, a quick and near effortless way to get from one part of downtown Toronto to another. It's a warm respite from the bitter winds, ice, and slush of winter, or it's a cool relief from the heat, humidity and auto fumes of summer. You can download detailed maps of PATH or be adventurous and... More

I admit it - I find underground tunnels and walkways interesting, so for me The Path was an excellent place to visit. It's great to see how Toronto has provided interconnecting walkways and buildings to enable its inhabitants (and tourists) to get around during the depths of winter or the height of summer. Once you've downloaded a map and have... More

The Path is not so much a tourist attraction as it is a convenient underground network of tunnels, shops, and stores. Crappy weather outside or don't feel like crossing busy intersections? Down the Path you go. Looking for an exquisite shopping or sightseeing experience? Go outside and get some sun!

Perfect way to get around Toronto with plenty of access points and shops, can easily get lost if you are not familiar but everyone is happy to help.

After a business meeting and a great lunch at a PATH take out I wandered this area for the afternoon! Lots of independent stores, from food, spices, unique items, clothing etc! Plus the chain stores, there is something for everyone! You make sure you have the map, then off you go! No heavy coats needed, it takes you all the... More

We were amazed that the mall closed early on Friday and was closed all weekend. I expected more from a metropolitan city. Why would they close a tourist attraction on the weekend?

There's an awful lot underneath Toronto city. You can easily get lost in the tunnels, and just as easily do all everything you need, from friendly barbers to great restaurants, banks and shoe stores, everything is down here. As is the subway of course.
