Interesting to see but essentially it’s a shopping precinct/mall... However where it comes into its own is during bad/extreme weather. Used to avoid ridiculous heat and cold. Not the easiest to navigate but once you get the hang of it makes sense. Hints we picked...More

Before going to Toronto, we were told to be sure to go in the underground city. We weren't impressed. It was just a mall and we weren't planning to do any shopping.

It's a fantastic idea if you want to stay away from snow and cold during the winter. There's a lot of restaurants and stores there to see.

The PATH is either jammed full of ant like office workers or a desolate deserted waste land at night and on the weekends. Good to get out of the cold or rain. Depressing otherwise.

Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip

Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
