Toronto's Hidden Gem: Distillery District
The historic distillery district is an absolute must-see during a hot summer day, it has amazing patios and cute little shops in early 1900 buildings.
A trip to the Distillery Historic District was quite interesting but a bit boring at the same time.
The buildings gave a great ancient city feel but unfortunately besides that there wasn't much to see or explore. It may have been due to visiting the Distillery District in spring, maybe the place booms during summer.
The Distillery District is a historic and entertainment precinct located east of Downtown Toronto.
It contains numerous cafés, restaurants, and shops housed within heritage buildings of the former Gooderham and Worts Distillery.
The 13-acre (52,000 sq. m) district comprises more than 40 heritage buildings and 10 streets, and is the largest collection of Victorian-era industrial architecture in North America.
The district was designated a National Historic Site of Canada in 1988.
