From 1832 until 1990, Toronto’s Distillery District was, as its name implies, the site of the massive Gooderham and Worts Distillery. After it closed, the space was unoccupied for more than a decade until it reopened in 2003 following an extensive restoration. It’s a stunning example of Victorian industrial architecture, but Michael recommends it to friends headed to Toronto for its range of nightlife and dining options, from bakeries to brew pubs, as well as seven galleries and three performing arts spaces.
Even if you think you know Toronto, Michael will point you to the latest and liveliest additions to the city’s scene. Check out his itinerary and eight others to Canada at AFAR Journeys.
