Little Italy and Annex areas are also known for their late-night party spirit, and Toronto’s gay nightlife mostly centers around Church and Wellesley. Bars and pubs abound in these areas, and those looking to continue their night out in one of the city’s many dance floors must turn up at one of the Entertainment district’s clubs after 11 pm.

Check out the Toronto Eaton Center (the city's largest mall) or plan your trip to one of Toronto's outlet malls with great bargains on brand name fashions. Head to Chinatown to browse through exotic herbs and teas and don't miss the city's many thrift shops in search for gifts to bring your loved ones.
