“Much more than I expected”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

18 miles of shops and food outlets in a maze of corridors under Toronto. Sparkling clean and well lighted. Don't think tunnels, think luxury pathways. We talked to locals who still lose their way in this immense subterranean city. It's worth walking through some just to get the flavor of it.

“Lots of shops, bring a map.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

Visited THE PATH of interconnecting Toronto Downtown buildings. The map features pathways and connect many building can be intimidating. For a tourist, you will never finish this in one day. For locals working here, they can do this over a few months. What you want to do is focus on the core of the PATH surrounding Eaton Centre and try to browse through it. There are so many food choices available and lots of walking. Bring a map of the path with you and try not to be too intimidated and disappointed if you do not cover all levels of this network.
Important TIP: Do not visit The PATH past business hours as its most stores are closed. Good rule of thumb is business hours are between 10am to 5pm.

“Humongous and confusing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

This place is massive. Really you can get lost. OK not really, but you sure can forget your way around in this place. It is huge and can get very confusing to know where you are going and where you are, so carry a map. It is almost impossible to see the whole place in in a week, let alone a day.

But it has a lot of shops and restaurants and cafes. Especially attractive in winter, when it is warm and cozy and you are out of the snow.

“Clean and Easy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

If you want to dodge the cold canadian winter, the PATH will get you there. Filled with shopps, both upscale and down, you can access most of the newer areas of Toronto under ground. It can be tricky to navigate as the signage is not always clear, so one can easily get lost, but once you figure it out, it is a clean, warm and easy way to get around the city by foot.

“Well Done!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

Stay warm in the winter - leave the coats at home, cool in the summer, connects a vast area of the city so be prepared and get a map! 28 kilometres underground is a lot of area to cover if you get lost! Extremely comfortable in the Winter from Lakeshore to Dundas and everything in-between. Practically impossible not to find something you like or need.
