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.

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
