Entertainment District Neighbourhood of Toronto
Toronto’s Entertainment District has a lot going on. It has traditional and avant-garde theatres for the performing arts along with fan-favourite venues for five major league sports teams, plus many family attractions. Look up, you’re surrounded by Entertainment District condos and office towers that form the Toronto skyline.
The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) is world renowned and takes place during the first 2 weeks of September, when the area surrounding their headquarters (TIFF Bell Lightbox) vibrates with the energy of the visiting celebrities, media and movie premieres.
King Street is home to Roy Thomson Hall, the Royal Alexandra and the Princess of Wales Theatres making it the perfect street for Canada’s Walk of Fame. Just a few blocks south, you can take a high-speed elevator to the top of the CN for the best views of Toronto, or enjoy the underwater world of Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada, which showcases 16,000 aquatic creatures from all around the world.
The atmosphere around the Scotiabank Arena and Rogers Centre is supercharged when the Maple Leafs, Raptors, or the Blue Jays are playing, but these venues also host many concerts and events when the home teams are away. Just like its name suggests, Entertainment District is where people come to play, party, dance, and enjoy life. At anytime of year, this neighbourhood is lit!
