The Irish are renowned for their charm,friendliness and good will but we have a firm contender in Toronto one will have to go here to experience this for themselves what an amazing city from sightseeing to shopping fine dining and off course the people make this the ideal choice to holiday in Canada

Located just north of Bloor and Avenue Roads, is the lovely enclave of Yorkville. It has tons of shops and really neat eateries, and is far less expensive than the very high end shops of nearby Bloor Street. Although, perusing both for an afternoon of contrast window shopping can be a fun thing to do! You don't have to buy... More

Yorkville is such a pretty area of downtown Toronto. Lots of high- end shops, cafes, and outdoor terraces. A great place to spend time with friends.

Ok ... If you are looking for a $5,000 handbag to round out your wardrobe this is your spot. If you want interesting sightseeing, go elsewhere. Yorkville used to be such a cool, interesting, bohemian area of the city but not anymore. It has been upscaled to death.

On a pleasant summer day, Yorkville is a 2-hour max. visit, then coffee, or ice cream, or lunch, or dinner. I'll focus on Canadian businesses in Yorkville, rather than the international chain stores (i.e. Anthropologie, GAP, Williams Sonoma, H&M). There are some high-end Canadian retailers, such as Holt Renfrew (women's & men's apparel) and Harry Rosen (men's apparel) but you... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its most stylish high-rise residences and heritage buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools, jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
