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.

When you are here on a daily basis, the various restaurants and attractions don't really stand out. During the day, it's very busy, and quiet in the evenings. There are several excellent restaurants and many more boring chain restaurants and food courts. If visiting, public...More

Great to explore for a couple of hours if you like to see tall buildings and just general street life.

Jammed by day, empty at night. It has no soul. Worth a 5 minute visit during the day it is just something you have to walk through at night. Yawn.

Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner
Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the
outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is
celebrated by a number of monuments and museums,
giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier
destination for modern art, people here stroll through
the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy
the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe
