Location: Yonge Street between Front and Bloor Streets, centred around Dundas Street

The first thing you need to know about Yonge Street is that it’s pronounced “Young.” And its downtown stretch is the most vibrant and bustling district of the city, famous for its world-class shopping, dining and entertainment. Toronto’s most visited attraction, the Eaton Centre, is modelled after European indoor gallerias. Worth seeing for its architecture alone, the Centre’s natural light, interior space and over 350 shops, restaurants and services draw millions of visitors every year.
If you can tear yourself away from the fabulous shopping, you’ll find lots of other things to do in Downtown Yonge. You can go to the theatre or catch a movie, concert or live event. In fact, there’s always something interesting going on here. And there is no end of restaurants, bars, pubs and coffee shops, ranging from quick and convenient food courts to elegant, upscale establishments where you’ll want to linger long into the evening.
