This area is home to one of Canada's top-ranking schools, beautiful neo-Gothic buildings, and a tree-dotted park with monuments, footpaths and benches. It's a lovely area to explore by foot, and offers easy access to the rest of the city via public transportation. Bustling pubs and diverse restaurants attract a young crowd, as well as those who work in the legislative buildings housed in the university campus.
Some parts of the neighborhood can feel somewhat seedy at night, particularly the area closest to Allan Gardens, but the area is not as unsafe as it appears. Stay near the eastern and southern borders of the University of Toronto downtown campus for easy access to the Harbourfront and the Financial District.
