Toronto’s open-air entertainment venue is across the street from the Eaton Centre. Summer is its liveliest season: Events include Yoga in the Square on Mondays, indie concert Fridays, and the odd movie to round out the mix. Events such as NXNE and Pride often host special free concerts here, too. When not in use for events, this is a public square where you can stroll or sit by the fountains. However, unless there is a specific event drawing you to YDS, it’s not worth a visit in and of itself. Think of it as Times Square Lite™ (complete with crowds, pickpockets, and blinding neon billboards).
