St Lawrence Market – 15min walk (take Queens Quay east and Upper Jarvis St north) Originally built in 1845, the St Lawrence market is a fantastic public market and Toronto icon. Get lost in the over 100 stalls and be sure try a lot of samples along the way — and don’t leave without getting a Peameal (aka “real” Canadian bacon) Sandwich from Carousel. Note: St Lawrence Market is closed on Sundays.
Distillery District – 25min walk (take Queens Quay east) The Distillery District is a National Historic Site, located in the Gooderham & Worts distillery that was established in 1832 and was once the largest distillery in the world. Check out this area for historic tours, fun bars, and great food..

Yonge-Dundas Square – 30min walk (take Yonge St north) or 12min by public transit (walk to Union
Station and take Line 1-Yonge subway north to Dundas) Central to Toronto’s shopping district, it’s not hard to find something fun to do at Yonge-Dundas square, which boasts several theatres, a cinema, tons of restaurants, and the massive Eaton Centre mall. Nearby on Queen St is also Nathan Philips Square, home to Toronto’s City Hall, iconic “Toronto” sign, and tasty food trucks.
Queen West – 15min by public transit (take the 510 streetcar to Queen St and walk west) Queen West — and in particular, its sub-neighborhood, Trinity-Bellwoods, is a hipster haven. Stroll West along Queen street from Spadina to Trinity-Bellwoods Park (and beyond) for quirky boutiques, organic snacks, and some of the best dining in the city.
Chinatown / Kensington Market – 25min by public transit (take the 510 streetcar to Dundas St for Chinatown or Nassau St for Kensington Market) Grab some dumplings at one of the many delicious and authentic restaurants in Chinatown (recommended: Dumpling House, where you can watch the cooks hand-make the dumplings in the storefront), and then head to nearby Kensington market to get lost in its maze of thrift shops, funky cafés, and outdoor markets.
