We joined the path near our hotel which was in old Toronto. The entrance was through a shopping centre and we found it easily enough. Everywhere we went we ended up following a PATH We walked through the railway station, Air Canada centre, office blocks and tunnels. It is full of food courts, shops, coffee stops, dentists, hairdressers and everything... More

The path is a very good option to move within downtown Toronto in bad weather. It is also clean and has many amusing shops and cafes. The only problem is that you can easily lose your way within its mazes. The sogns are not very helpful. Also, there is always ongoing construction activities.

My husband and I were keen to show off the "world's largest underground mall" to our teenagers. Looking at the map it had grown substantially since I travelled it for work over a decade ago. We were looking forward to checking out the changes ourselves. Our daughter summed it up well identifying that 'it's a massive underground food court'. There... More

For uniqueness it's there, but as for anything else it's poor. It took us 3 attempts to find it. When you ask for directions you are told to follow the Path signs, wee found 1 and then they disappeared. Finally we asked again and were told to follow the TTC signs and then the Path signs. This maybe because the... More

The Path I easily the most interesting place you'll ever fine to shop. Its an underground network of passages between all the major structures in downtown Toronto that runs from Union Station northeast and northwest as far as Bloor if memory serves and it is constantly being expanded. Some find the system difficult to navigate but it really isn't that... More

I`ve already heard about the subterranean cities before visiting Canada, so I was quite interested on seeing it live. The path is basically a business area full of stores and quite easy to get lost, but still interesting.

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

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.
