King West

The King Street area, formerly an industrial area with not much entertainment going on, is now one of Toronto's shopping centrals packed with trendy fashion boutiques and restaurants. It's a rapidly developing area of the city, with an ever-increasing supply of entertainment.


Toronto is a city with no shortage of shopping options. Whether it is a busy market you're after (St. Lawrence will certainly meet your expectations), or more of a "classic" shopping mall experience — Toronto has it all. Check out the Toronto Eaton Center (the city's largest mall) or plan your trip to one of Toronto's outlet malls with great bargains on brand name fashions. Head to Chinatown to browse through exotic herbs and teas and don't miss the city's many thrift shops in search for gifts to bring your loved ones.
