    I loved coming here in summer (live music) and winter (Christmas Marketplace). Must visit place for tourists. Great place to visit for locals especially when there are events/music.

    One of the most unique districts of Toronto. From shopping to dining, or even just sightseeing, this is a must-see. Boasts the best example of Victorian-era industrial style architecture in NA.

    The Distillery District is a great place to spend a few hours if you're in downtown Toronto and want to get away from the usual downtown stuff.

    Rustic old brick and buildings with such character. Why not take a walk through the Distillery and capture the area from a historic point of view. Imagine what it looked like years ago!

    I think this is one of the hidden gems for live music in Toronto. I caught Patrick Brealey live in concert this evening and I was allowed to borrow him for this pic.

    Welcome to the only pedestrian zone in Toronto, home to the largest collection of Victorian-era buildings in North America. Don't miss the Love Locks installation to leave your mark in the city.
