When I heard about this underground centre I wanted to see it for my own eyes when I got to Toronto. It didn't disappoint! It's like a walking tube for commuters to travel from subway stops to their place of work. It avoids competing with the weather and traffic. There are lots of stores underground as well. There were a... More

Try to find your route from A to B without going outside. Even though we visited Toronto during some excellent June weather we still used the PATH routes quite a bit. Sometimes hard to know exactly where to go as the signs can be small but it transports you along either above or below the traffic in air conditioned comfort

We stumbled onto Path by accident and what an awesome place it is. It's not advertised in any city blurb that's out there. Around 1200 shops all underground and the best thing was that it wasn't mad busy like the high streets. What a boon for winter shopping. Prices seemed more reasonable too.

The Path connects dozens of downtown Toronto buildings via underground passages lined with shops. There are two reasons why I really like The Path. First, the weather. If it's too hot, or too cold, or too wet, or too snowy, The Path enables you to get around the area between the two branches of the Subway north of Union Station... More

If you live inToronto and or use the Path regularly it is a great way to get around downtown Toronto during bad weather. However, if you are a visitor and have never been there, it is quite easy to "get lost" and spend some time trying to get to your destination and or outside. It can be quite confusing. There...

I am not much of a shopper but the path sure is a nice walk. As busy as it is on the top side of Toronto's streets I was surprised to find THE PATH filled with people at 7 am. We walked from our downtown hotel to the harbor front and back. Apparently there are 1200 stores spread out over... More

For tourists (which I was) it is very confusing at first. You don't know which way you go and the exits. But when you get the hang of it, its very convenient. You don't need to cross roads, face the sub-zero temperature during winter. It will save you time and temperature (!) , but just like any other investment you... More

We did not go in the day time - it looks like that would have been nice. However, we did attempt to use this on our way back to our hotel at 10:30pm. I don't generally consider that too late to go anywhere, as people are normally out and about still at that time. However, the Path proved me wrong... More

Staying in Downtown West

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
