Toronto the Good, yesterday and today

A nice place to stroll and people-watch, an interesting architectural mix of pre-WWI British fantasy of "Ideal England in the New World" with modernity.

There is plenty to explore in this downtown oasis. The building are unique, the food is good at Hart House, and the people watching is fun.

The University of Toronto is home to almost 60,000 students and is a beautiful and a landmark building. The grounds are breathtaking and are only just over a mile away from the financial centre of Toronto. Well worth your time and extremely refreshing oasis in a great city.

This place is beautiful. Once we came to Toronto was quite close to our apartment. The park associated (Queens) is pretty, and good for sports.

If you like to stroll in the city's centre, the UofT campus is a delight. Just enter and breathe the refreshing air of academia. Mature trees and old buildings blended into the new all there to give you a chance to breathe in Toronto from a completely different perspective.

Many good old colleges still there plus more modern additions. The Art Museum at Hart House had an interesting show about Toronto history and Canadian artists.

Gorgeous grounds to walk around by Hart House (south of Harbord/Wellesley), and University College and Convocation hall. The Gallery Grill in Hart House is a great place for lunch daily 11:30-2:30 except Saturday's (closed).

Having put this stop on the back burner on previous trips to Toronto, I made sure that this would not be the case on this trip. A friend and I enjoyed a leisurely walk around this campus enjoying the huge number of ivy-clad historical buildings. The most enjoyable stop was the university bookstore on West Queen St. (Osgoode subway stop);... More

There is a lot to see at one of Canada's oldest and largest universities. There are several "colleges" which are around the circle, most being West of the circle. You can look on line to sea reach for the colleges and their respective areas of learning. There is also Hart House Theatre, that if you're going during their seaso, may... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
