Once a hippie hangout where famous folk singers flocked in the 60s, this is now one of Toronto’s most elegant shopping and dining areas. The neighbourhood features many small courtyards, alleyways and charming Victorian homes plus first class designer boutiques, antique shops and galleries. A contemporary park located in the very heart of the neighbourhood features a giant granite boulder, which brings the raw beauty of the Canadian Shield right into Toronto’s urban centre. It’s a perfect place to people watch and rest between shopping bouts.
Hailed as the “Mink Mile,” Bloor Street in the Yorkville area is home to high-end designers like Tiffany & Co., D&G, Louis Vuitton and Hermès.
The area is also home to some lively events including Bloor-Yorkville Icefest, Yorkville Exotic Car Show, Bloor Street Entertains, Toronto Santa Speedo Run and Holiday Magic. No visit to Toronto is complete without a thorough exploration of this chic neighbourhood.
