This day is not for the shopping wimpy. Hit 3 very different shopping zones in Toronto all in one day. Start with the Eaton Centre for a traditional Mega-mall experience, move into the upscale scene in Yorkville and end the day off with a funky experience on Queen West. Refreshments will be critical so end the day with dinner and drinks on an outdoor patio.
Day 1 - Toronto
If you’re looking for a full day of Toronto shopping, wear your most comfortable shoes and bring your stamina. Toronto has incredible shopping, and be sure to check out Canadian chains such as Jacob, Club Monaco, Roots, Aritzia, and Holt Renfrew. Start out by perusing the shops along Yonge St., the best place to start is Across from the Eaton Centre which is at Yonge & Queen. Although the Eaton Centre is massive, don’t get stuck here all day! There are other places to see.
If you’re in the mood (and have the budget) for upscale, head up to Bloor St W. where you will find a mix of designers as well as chain stores. This area also tends to be a great place to spot celebs.
For a different type of shopping and crowd, consider heading South to Queen St. W. Although becoming more mainstream, this area is home to small shops owned and managed by up and coming designers and features a more off-beat, eclectic blend of people and stores. Queen W. also features many reasonably priced tasty restaurants. Try the Black Bull Restaurant to get a seat on one of Toronto’s best patios
