Toronto is a fascinating city, and there really is something interesting to discover down every block.
North, south, east, or west…this city will surprise and amaze you with its eclectic history and distinctive nods to the future.
But to properly explore Toronto, you have to know where to start.
With its impressive Bike Score and Transit and Walk Scores of 100, Lifetime’s Panda Condominium is perfectly located. Situated right in the cultural heart of Toronto and steps from Yonge and Dundas Square, Panda’s proximity to the PATH and some of the city’s finest bike and walking routes make it the right first step on any journey to discover Toronto.
A twenty-minute trek north up Yonge Street to Bloor is a blur of international cuisine, karaoke lounges and bars, and great theatre including The Buddies In Bad Times and the CAA Theatre. As an added bonus, your walk leaves you at the foot of Toronto’s fashionable Yorkville district.
Head south down Yonge and you’ll enjoy some of the city’s best shopping at The Eaton Centre, which is home to Nordstorm, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Hudson’s Bay to name a few. And the proximity to great performance venues continues, with the Ed Mirvish Theatre and the Elgin’s Broadway productions, and Massey Hall bringing the finest in concert programming. At Queen Street, head west for a peek at the iconic City Hall and Old City Hall buildings.
Hop on your bike for a quick trip east along Shuter. Head north up River for a scenic bike ride by the Don River and, if time allows, make your way back west along the Rosedale Valley Road. It offers some of the prettiest vistas in the city.
Once you’ve pounded the pavement in every direction, head underground to the PATH. With the entrance right across the street from Panda in the Bay Atrium, you’re minutes away from one of the most incredible underground pedestrian walkways in the world. The PATH connects downtown Toronto from below, with over 30 kilometres of restaurants, shopping and distinctive entertainment.
