Street is locally regarded as
the longest street in the
world. This is actually not true, but it's best not to argue with the

many restaurants, souvenir and gift shops, etc.
is the high-end shopping district of Toronto. Once a haven for
Toronto's hippie population, it is located just north of Bloor and Bay

district along Queen Street West, an area usually bustling with local
hipsters looking for the latest looks in a variety of trendy stores.
The stretch between University Ave and Spadina tends to be much more

Mall at Steeles and Kennedy
in Markham, the largest
Chinese indoor mall in North America is definitely worth a visit if you

see China without spending the airfare. Vast crowds crush the sidewalks

place to pick up souvenirs.
Eaton Centre - A massive
shopping mall located at Yonge

comfortable here, as most major stores and labels are represented,

parking areas to capacity.
