Americans perform the ritual of taken their Grade 11 children to Boston for a walk around Harvard University to inspire them to reach their full educational potential. Asian kids in the Far East dream of attending the University of Toronto, as they take courses to help them be placed here. I recommend all parents whose kids love learning to come... More

The campus is huge but they some how make it feel like a small school. Some of the buildings are breathtakingly beautiful.The curriculum seems flexible to allow students to grow in any direction. Everything is pristine. I wish I were young again :)

The exquisite grounds of this Old World University in the New World. Knowing two of its head librarians, one Canadian and one American, made it extra special touring its many facilities. It's wonderful lawns are great for strolling and a nice picnic lunch.

Having woken early last Sunday I talk the opportunity to walk around the University District, It reminded me of Oxford in the UK. Very peaceful, some great architecture and art installations. Definitely worth a stroll.

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.
