Pick up some groceries from the supermarket and hop into the green that is High Park, Bloor West Village is a great place to escape downtown Toronto. With several restaurants and bars to hang out, you will enjoy your shopping even more. And there's plenty to shop with all the stores. On my first trip to T.O. this was the area I got to know best. Downtown Toronto is awesome yet totally different. A vibrant metropole where you'll spend hours of shopping, walking and sightseeing. The Village and its small town feeling gives you a little extra when you're in town, especially for a longer period.
