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.

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,...

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.
