Yorkville, Toronto is one of the city’s most stunning neighbourhoods, featuring high-end shopping, upscale restaurants and beautiful homes – which also puts this little village on the map as one of the most expensive areas in North America. The stretch of boutique shops and designer brands, known as Mink Mile, is the district’s most distinct area, carrying big names like Chanel, Prada, Gucci and Burberry as well as a number of luxury hotels. Yorkville is now known as an incredibly affluent neighbourhood, but in the early 1960s, it was an area of counterculture, with hippies, artists, and others embracing the low rent and coffee houses. It was considered its own town until it was annexed into Toronto in 1883 – here, you’ll see remnants of this historical background like Victorian architecture and cobblestone streets. Discover all this captivating neighbourhood has to offer – from good eats and shopping to art galleries and museums.
