For incoming tourists.

Distillery District - has NO CARS, some nice shops and balzac's coffee, but expensive and closes early and always full of tourists

St Lawrence Market has some interesting shopping.

CN Tower - it's a cliché but still pretty neat. The resto is $$$ but not bad, worth a revolving drink anyway.

Harbourfront & Toronto island some established art and the island's nice in the summer.

Spadina Chinatown, Kensington Market - just wander around

Queen Street West though you have to go pretty far west these days for the edgy stuff. Still the Queen Mother's an old favourite and Ghandi Roti is amazing.

Contemporary Art Museum (Queen West) or just check the galleries on the street

OCAD building is neat to look at from the outside, but you can sneak in and see what the art students are up to.

Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) if they have something interesting on.

College Street including Croft Street, many nice restos.

Bloor Street West including High Park

Bata Shoe Museum is actually pretty neat.

The Annex just wander around.

Yonge Street (South of Bloor) all the trashy stuff slowly being transformed into an outdoor US mall

Danforth & Broadview park for a great city view on a clear night

Yonge Street (North of Bloor) is cute, visit the 'seven thieves' shops for expensive food.

Way up north, the Pacific Mall gives you a real taste of Asian shopping.
