Whenever I'm in Toronto, Ontario Canada I make a visit to the Conservatory. It is must see for me. The venue is indoors so it's great no matter what the weather is out. The flowers and plans are gorgeous and very well manicured. During my visit last week, spring flowers were all over. I did visit once in December where... More

One of my close friends took me here one summer weekend. There was a variety of flowers and plants to look at, and the water wheel and statues surrounding it was a lovely touch. There are seats available if your feet ever get tired from exploring the place. However, our visit was a bit uncomfortable because of how humid it... More

I have lived by the Allan Gardens for some time, and it wasn't until I had a baby that I finally took a walk through it for something to do. What a beautiful, free oasis to see some amazing plants. Its nice to walk through, or sit on a bench. You wouldn't know you are right down town here.

I love this place always something in bloom, an exotic oasis in the middle of the city today was no exception. A walk through this conservatory revitalizes me

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
