    There is almost always sth going on - like open air concerts. 👍🏼 What I don't like about them is the sound which is usually waaay off. However, you'll find street vendors with goodies like these 😍

    Awesome concerts here (and other events) every once in a while, and they're usually free! I've seen The Tragically Hip, Against Me!, NHL Faceoff and a lot more here.

    Yonge Dundas Square has something different going on almost every day it seems. Great place for pictures and it can be a meeting point for persons to go off shopping and sightseeing around Toronto

    City Cinema - movie screen was very HD, a little loud, really enjoyed watching a movie there. Loved that they had filled half the square with seats. get there early for a good seat.

    Great place for special events. Toronto needs to make more use of it, like today: the Royal Canadian Mint's unveiling of the 75th Anniversary Superman coin set! ^_^

    New Yorks version of times Square obviously smaller. Clean and full of people. There is always happenings going on

    Literally the centre of the most busiest intersection downtown. It's quite the view and has a times square kind of feel with just less billboards and ads.

    Always a busy place! If there isn't a community event happening, there are plenty of buskers to keep you entertained. The fountains are amazing in the summer!

    Some people say this is an alternative for the Times Square of New York. Heart of the city, commercials and hard rock cafe;)

    If you're chillin here for a bit, don't park under the square… Park by Ryerson on Victoria street (the street beside the burger place). It's $6 max! #ImCheapAndIKnowIt

    If you want to sit in public place with a friend or alone enjoying some active in the day or quite in late night. Then this is your ideal place.

    Stand near the fountains (but not in them if it's cold) for the best wi-fi signal. The connection can be spotty elsewhere in the square.

    Similar to NYC's Time Square. Small and quaint, events happen here. during the summer theres water fountain flowing.

    Not sure what to do on a nice summer's evening? Take a walk past YDS and there's bound to be a free concert taking place. Sometimes they're big name acts too!

    A cultural centre that hosts a variety of free public events. On a hot summer day, go ahead and run through the fountain.

    Street painters are awesome, Friday drummers in good whether, hotdogs! Free samples during the summer. Look out for guys giving out black history manuals, they want money and are persistent.
