Tips from locals
If you want to see the giant Toronto sign - you will have to go to Nathan Phillips Square! Here you will be a stone's throw away from Old City Hall, as well as the famous Eaton Centre.
Here at Nathan Philips Square is where the infamous TORONTO sign is located! Head over to take a selfie or take a seat with a cup of coffee to people-watch!
You can't come to Toronto and not get a picture with the Toronto sign. The sign lights up at night and can be a nice spot to hang out with some take out food. Old city hall and new city hall are in the same vicinity.
