Yonge-dundas Square, Toronto Reviews
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.
You need to visit this place. It is one of my favourite in the town. There is usually events happening and also there is a bunch of pubs, stores and etc. If you visiting the town you must go there lol there is a cinema as well. Try the milestone or jack astors restaurant...maybe both lol you will love it.
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
Basically a mini version of New York time square or it looks like an attempt at it. Over crowded with young kids during the day time and tons of shops and restuarants around. Worth a stroll around the area, better at night though, less crowded but nothing crazy to deserve more then 3 stars. Huge screens with nothing but advertisements. I
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.
