So much to do, so much to see! There' just no way or maybe there is way you will be able to explore queen street and all it has to offer in one visit. A lot of shops, carrying anything and everything, from clothing, to...More

Queen West is a continual strip of stores and restaurants. Mostly locally owner operated and not chain stuff. Be prepared for jams of pedestrians.

Went there over the weekend and really enjoyed some of the antique shops as well as the 'end of the line' furniture stores. We are renovating our house so we are looking for some interesting fixture and they can be found on Queen...

Graffiti alley is cool and well worth checking out, queen street itself is super long but if the weather's good walk it since there's loads of cool boutique shops. At night this is where you can head for a chilled bar scene

There are almost too many choices along Queen Street to eat and/or enjoy beverages, day or night. Give Loka Toronto a try for an amazing Tapas style dining experience!!

If you like funky then Queen Street West is for you. The very hip and funky stores can be found west of Spadina. If you walk along Queen as far as Bathurst you will find all sorts of cool little coffee shops, restaurants, clothing stores,...More

This is a hipster neighbourhood. I love this area because it looks so much like Fitzroy/Brunswick in Melbourne, Australia (minus the snow and also opposite traffic). The similarity is probably because of the tram, well they call it street car in Toronto. Other parts of...More

East End
The East End is an eclectic amalgamation of areas that
team up to make this district one of the most
multi-faceted and alluring. Home to Toronto's LGBT
community hub, Gay Village is alive and pumping day or
night with friendly bars, nightclubs, and cafes – its
thumb is on the pulse of excitement. For a more
relaxed day, the East End has the largest collection
of restored Victorian homes, and its stately streets,
