Yonge-dundas Square, Toronto Reviews - Write a Review
It is a very lively place. During the summer, there is something going on every weekend and many days during the week. There are free movies and concerts in the evenings once a week (summer months). There are winter-related festivals too. They are trying to build it like Times Square in NYC. There are giants screens surrounding the square featuring mostly advertising. Summer 2017, They installed the largest in Canada.
lots of high school kids with nothing better to do just come and hang out here.. Gets annoying real fast. Better when there are events going around.. Lively and diverse crowds usually show up
Great part of city for tourists to visit. Toronto's smaller version of Times Square. A lot of activity, chain restaurants and the Eaton Centre. There are also great events hosted in Dundas Square during the summer.
Great tourist area. Centrally located. Great night life area. Great shopping. Close to parking and hotels. Always busy. Great street performers during summer months.
"Dundas Square" is a great place to visit if you're looking for the unexpected. Everyday you may find something new, from buskers to performing artists and beyond. It's an ideal place to take in the true "Toronto" experience. There is also a variety of shops from every point in the spectrum. Be aware that these points are well known as this is definitely the busiest location in all of the city. So perhaps you shouldn't be surprised to bump into a few shoulders here and there, especially at the jam-packed four way crosswalk. Also perhaps be wary of carrying your wallet in your back pocket.
