Yonge Street Tips (24)

Yonge and Dundas

You want a place to people watch in Toronto. Look now further then Yonge and Dundas Square located along Yonge St. in downtown Toronto. Eaton Centre is close by. The place is basically the "Times Square of Toronto" as my buddy Jon told me. You can see why once you set foot in the area.

Billboards and advertisements are everywhere. Tourists, protesters and everything in between flock here in droves. The square itself contains some fountains where I was surprised no one was running through, given the hot day. There are some tables where one can relax and people watch. Chinatown is located just blocks away to the West as well. It's a great meeting spot and there's plenty of shopping around in the form of the Eaton Centre. If you wanted to, one can catch the touristy sightseeing double decker buses located on the Square.

Yonge St.

It is the main arterial road in Toronto built between 1795 and 1796 .It is formerly the longest street in the world at 1,896 km connecting the shores of Lake Ontario in Toronto to Lake Simcoe.It was named after the 5th baronet Sir George Yonge, an expert in roman roads. You will never get bored walking along this street lined with various restaurants, stores, coffee shops, bars, entertainment and attractions. I saw live street performances and partying along Eaton Centre which one side is facing the street. This is a very busy street full of tourists if you hate crowd this is not your place.

Watching a busy Square from top

We went up 10 Dundas East (retail and cinema complex) on the northeast corner of the Square where Future Shop (Best Buy of the USA) is an anchor store. From a corner store on the 3rd floor we took some pictures of the Square. It was Friday afternoon, but the Square wasn't as crowded as it is normally.

Some claim that the intersection is the busiest in Canada, with over 56 million people passing through annually. It is sometimes nicknamed Toronto's Times Square, as development is cited as modelling New York's Times Square, Tokyo's Shibuya district, and London's Piccadilly Circus. To ease traffic, a pedestrian scramble has been installed.[

Yonge & Dundas

Yonge & Dundas is an active intersection. In one corner you have Eaton Centre shopping mall. In another you have Dundas square where they often have free entertainment. Sometimes a big name like Russel Peters gives a show and people will spill out to all corners of the intersection. Then you have street shops on another corner. As you may have read, Yonge is a long street so the there is a wide spectrum of stores, in terms of quality and price.

You can take a virtual tour of Yonge St at grandstreets.com. They have panoramic views of the whole street so you can browse all the shops at a glance.

The builing is in a similar neo-classical style with four columns. It is sometimes open to the public for architectural tours.

Yonge Street at night

Yonge street is apparently the longest street in the world. It is worth walking through Yonge Street downtown in the evenings. The city is full of life. The busiest part is between Queen and Dundas, in other words next to the Eaton Center. There is an abundance of painters, magicians, singers etc. If you have the time, you may wish to also walk along Queen Street. A great way to spend an evening is to walk along Queen street, Yonge Street and then Bloor Street in the evenings. You will see every type of shop imaginable. Naturally, a Saturday night is the best time to be here for most people. To see my album on Yonge street in general, click here: Yonge Street Album 1

The Longest Street in the World!?!

There are many well known streets in Toronto with many places to shop or be entertained, but perhaps the best known is Yonge Street (pronounced Young Street). To say the least, it is a lively, industrious, busy, interesting, and a "do not miss" location for your visit to Toronto! It has the reputation of being the longest street in the world and as traffic is usually quite busy, it is best to know where you need to access it.

Every kind of goods, services, food, drink, & entertainment seem to be in abundance here! It is lively, but not rowdy. It has a certain edge to it, but does not seem to threaten. A stroll down Yonge Street is an introduction to the many cultures and nationalities that become Toronto. All seem to coexist in a polite respect and all are represented with places to shop, eat, drink, and socialize! From driving what seemed to have been the length of the longest street in the world, I think I can safely say that whatever you are looking for is looking back at you here!

The pictures posted are a view of Yonge from several views, but certainly not inclusive of all as these pictures are gathered from my 3 or 4 block perspective from my hotel. The first picture gives you an idea of the activity and enterprise that happens here. The second one is of some swanky place that I could not afford while the third pic provided an interesting picture of a church. Ok, not like the churches back home, I guess... The last one here was nice for me because of the dark shadows while Sunshine illuminates the sky.

Please check out other tips as many are strategically associated with Yonge Street!
