The Financial District of Toronto is in the Downtown area and a very short walk from Union Station and also the CN Tower. The Waterfront is just a little further away.

Toronto is the banking capital of Canada so many businesses have offices located here. There are many very big skyscrapers in the area and you can feel dwarfed by the size of some of the buildings.

There are places to get a drink and something to eat in the area as well.

One of the fanciest part of Toronto. Tall buildings are everywhere, and the atmosphere is relatively safe compared to other sectors of the city. You will see major financial companies, such as banks, accounting firms, etc.

Toronto is the commercial capital of Canada. The office towers are tall and impressive. Major banks, mining companies and insurance companies are headquartered here. Toronto has no competition since Montreal committed financial suicide. What's more, in Toronto the language of commerce is English. If you're an Anglophone, getting around Toronto is no problem.

The place is quite during the pandemic period. It is very busy and all the major banks and financial institutes are located in this area.

On our 1st trip to Toronto we stayed in the financial district at the 12 story Strathcona Hotel, that was dwarfed but the impressive structures that make up a good portion of Toronto's impressive skyline. The area was easy walking distance to many of Toronto's sites on our list as well as restaurants and shopping and we didn't need our car during our visit. Looking forward to a 2nd trip.

While visiting Canadian friends with some friends from home, we went on daytrips to Toronto twice, using the GO Train from Aldershot Train Station in Burlington. The train goes into Union Station in a section of the Financial District in Downtown Toronto on Front Street.

On the second daytrip to Toronto, we did some sightseeing, dining, and shopping.

We started in the Financial District. The Canadian friend who led this daytrip worked in the Financial District for many years, so he was the ideal tour guide for our group. From him we learned that the Financial District is the most built-up area of Toronto.

The Financial District is where most banks, insurance companies, stockbrokers, financial advisors, and corporate accounting firms are located. It is bounded by Queen Street West to the north, Yonge Street to the east, Front Street to the south, and University Avenue to the west,

It also has its own underground world called the PATH, a series of underground tunnels that connect office buildings and Union Station.

For our tour of the Financial District, we started on Front Street. The first building he showed us and talked about was the stately Fairmont Royal York Hotel at 100 Front Street West right near Union Station. It serves business and leisure travelers alike. It is located above the PATH, a enormous underground complex for shopping and dining with access to adjacent Union Station. Large Canadian, American, British, Canadian Colonial, and Fairmont flags were flying over the entrance overhang. We learned that it was not as expensive as one might think to stay there. Rooms were in the $125.00 CAD range in the fall and winter.

Nearby were Man Financial Canada -at 123 Front Street West, Alphanorth Asset Management at 144 Front St West, and Watson Parojcic Financial at 151 Front Street West.

The Toronto Stock Exchange was on King Street.

We also went to the Toronto Dominion Bank’s Gallery of Intuit Art on Wellington Street and Brookfield Place on Bay Street before lunch.

We had lunch in the heart of the Financial District at Sud Forno on Temperance on Yonge Street.

After venturing into the Yorkville section, we returned for more sightseeing in the Financial District before having free time to explore the PATH also in the Financial District before meeting up for dinner at The Duke of Devon in the PATH in the section under the TD Tower at 66 Wellington Street.

I thought the Toronto Finacial District rivaled any other financial district I've seen, and that includes New York City's FiDi, Zurich, and London. The PATH underneath really sets it apart.

We rate the Toronto Finacial District at 4.50 There's plenty to see and do there, especially in the underground PATH. The shopping and dining options are worth a visit.

It is impressive to see very all buildings around but to live there is just a life without color. All these tall buildings are letting you without any energy. There is so little nature around.

We visited the financial district on Saturday and it was totally deserted. Buildings of steel and glass towering above with just the odd person wandering around. I guess visiting during the week would be totally different. Plenty of cafes and restaurants dotted around for which I would imagine you would need a fat wallet but can’t say for certain as everywhere was shut.

This área reminds you Manhatan New York City Walk Street. Buidings and buildings mostly with Bank logos on the top showing all that this is the money sea. Probably the most esteriotyped urban blocks in Toronto but a Nice place to visit.
