“Travel can be one of the most rewarding forms of introspection.”
Just east of downtown Toronto, the Distillery District was once the home of the Gooderham and Worts Distillery, the world's largest distillery back in the late 19th century. Today, it's a National Historic Site in Canada, as well as one of the hottest new neighborhoods in Toronto. The Victorian-era architecture remains, transformed into residential lofts, art galleries, shops and restaurants. With bricked streets and more than 40 heritage buildings, the area has a unique charm. Events are held here almost every weekend, and the old-fashioned annual Christmas market is a highlight of the season. In the summer, Segway tours of the district cover local history on two wheels.
