What an amazing surprise to discover that we could get around from our stay at the Fairmont Royal York in such convenience. Considering we used the Path for our November stay and it was rainy outside, this was delightful!

We were led through portions of The Path by a local, or we likely would have become lost. Once you get north of Union Station, it is nicer and has more shopping, etc. Like similar underground structures in Vancouver and Montreal, The Path offers a...More

The underground tunnel network around central Toronto is amazing. It’s easily accessed from many points (I stayed at Sheraton this visit and you walk straight onto PATH from the hotel). Signage is variable but that’s half the fun. It’s full of (mainly) smaller shops and...More

The Path is a great way to get around the city without dealing with intersections and traffic. It's indoors so the temperature is controlled. There were sections that got confusing, but overall it is a great way to get around Toronto.

The easiest way to get around the city of Toronto when the weather is not very good. A number of shopping options, however it would be better if they were open later and on longer on the weekends.

The only reason to take the PATH is if the weather is bad outside. Points for climate control. It is difficult to figure out where you are, and the path to take to get there. Also, there is no decent map of the PATH -...More

The Path is jammed with worker bee suits during M-F 9 to 5 and then empty otherwise. Not really a tourist attraction unless you like crowds.

Who would have known there was an underground world beneath Toronto. A great way to get around if you want to keep away from the hustle and bustle of the streets above or the inclement weather. Plenty of shops and cafes but under the financial...More

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
