The Toronto Eaton Centre is more than just a shopping centre. It's an architectural model for shopping malls around the country. Completed in 1979 and given a new facade in 1999, it is the third largest mall in Canada and is one of the city's most popular attractions.

There are more than 285 shops, restaurants, and services to wind your way through including brand new stores like Hollister, Mango, Bebe Sport, Lululemon Athletica and Pink Paw. When you're taking a breather from shopping, you can stop by Centre Court's famous fountain or look up for renowned Canadian artist Michael Snow's sculpture of Canada geese, entitled Flight Stop. Without question, the mall is a major tourist destination, staying open on most statutory holidays, including Boxing Day (Dec. 26), to accommodate the approximately one million customers a week who walk through the doors. The Canon (formerly the Pantages), and the Elgin and Winter Garden theatres are within walking distance, and if you're hungry Yonge Street is overflowing with cuisine from around the world. Outside, at the Yonge and Dundas corner, street vendors sell their wares while buskers and bands perform for passerbys, lunch crowds and throngs of teens. Getting there:
