Owner description: The Distillery District is an internationally acclaimed village of brick-lined streets and dozens of vibrantly restored Victorian Industrial buildings. It’s one of Ontario’s hottest tourist attractions and home to live theatres, galleries, fashion, design and jewelry boutiques, unique cafes and award-winning restaurants. It’s all completely closed to traffic and just a few minutes walk from downtown Toronto.

What was once the entry port for Toronto then a huge distillery made famous
by people smuggling Canadian whiskey into the US during prohibition.
Has great theatre (Soulpepper), restaurants and galleries.
For the family.

Nice atmosphere when walking down the cobble stone roads. Cool patios set up in front of the bars and cafes. I had a good meal at Mill st. Brewers. The beer is made in the premises and tastes fantastic. Great spot for stroll on a pleasant spring nite.

The elements of the District are better than the sum of its parts. I really like Balzacs Coffee there, and the Segway tours are pretty cool. I would advise going out of your way to try them. There are a number of little shops and some good bakeries and restaurants. Nice place to stroll. But you will probably find after two hours or so you've done pretty much all you want to do there. It's real downside is that it is hard to get to unless you have a car.
