Not only does this street designate Toronto's east-west split, it is also the city's longest thoroughfare. In fact, Yonge is known as the world's longest street, stretching from Lake Ontario to the town of Rainy River, more than 1900 kilometers (1180 miles) away. Originally used as a trail by the Hurons, the road became an official passage in the 1790s. Today, it is a burgeoning commercial district and a beehive of activity, especially in the section between Front and Lawrence. One of Toronto's three subway lines operates along this route.
Yonge St and the surrounding areas reminded me so much of NYC and te East Village. The different foods,different nationalities of the people, te sopping, the students,the business district...it really as it all. Has to be on the list of anyone going to Toronto
Whoah!!!! So much stuff to do and play, I couldn't keep track! There is soo many good foods!!! People who enjoy eating, exercise, and just fun-in-the-sun should really go there. Just remember, there is always something for everyone in the family, as the other reviwer said...

This section of the city simply comes alive after 10pm. Accessible by subway and very easy to navigate. Restaurants and specialty shops galore.
We found Richtree Market and thoroughly enjoyed dining, sharing a cocktail, and just people watching. When you enter you are presented a 'swipe card' to carry to the various stations. Coffee bar, pub, fresh seafood, pastry, oven-fired pizza, pasta, ice cream, juice bar. You make your selections, find comfortable seating in the gazebo or spacious dining rooms and just enjoy. As you leave, present your card and pay at one time. No tipping.
You could easily spend an afternoon/evening along a section of Yonge and not see every shop or restaurant. Very enjoyable and safe for a late night stroll.
there was so much to see and do on yonge street. they had an incredible selection of restaurants, it was hard to chose just one! the shopping was great- lots of cute stores you wouldn't normally find anywhere else. if you like to stick to chain stores then go to the eaton center. yonge street was a good evening activity as well since it was so lively.
Yonge street really is a must go-to street in Toronto. The shops are second to none, with many boutiques and vintage shops. Great place to people watch, as there is much going on...all the time. Very energic part of the city! Wonderful food selection. Really Toronto at it's finest!
