I went through the Financial District to get to the CN Tower, and it is a small but typical financial center. The unique PATH underneath the district is ideal for walking in the winter. The utilization of the underground space reminded me of most of the cities in China because they have similar underground malls.

Very walkable, clean, lots of interesting architecture, older buildings incorporates beautifully into financial center, short walk to the waterfront and Chinatown. Spent pleasant day walking around. Really enjoyed breezy space at Brookfield Plaza, really beautiful.

We found ourselves walking through the financial district a few times on the way to other places. It is a nice area, and the buildings are huge! Although there didn't seem to be a lot to do in the area, I did like it and the buildings were impressive.

You can find there a lot of new and tall buildings. Worth the walk, to see all that clean and shiny glas.

Ok it might sound strange but I find that you get a better idea of the size of all the buildings when they are all lit up at night. You can easily get dizzy walking around looking up them. You will find all the big financial players here. Some resturants dotted around as well.

Downtown Toronto: an interesting mix of old and new buildings. Much smaller than New York, but more accessible also easy to walk around and appreciate the atmosphere for yourself.

I decided to enter the Bank of Montreal Centre and go down the escalator, next thing I know I am on the PATH, a sign made out os 4 blue cubes, leading you through the underground pathway in the financial district! Treasures at every turn! If you get turned around lovely people, those in 'suits' will kindly give you directions!... More

No visit to Toronto is complete without visiting the Financial District. The center of this district is King and Bay. However, all these buildings are connected by a massive underground network known as "the path", which is ideal for getting around in bad weather. Visitors will likely require a map, http://www.toronto.ca/path/. You should visit this area during business hours, but... More
