Owner description: Often compared to New York City's Soho, Queen Street is the place to go for trendy dining and nightlife, plus cutting-edge fashion, art galleries, antique shops and bookstores.

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, book stores and more. It's a fun way to spend the day.

Its a busy street near to everything like Old City hall of Toronto, Hudsons Bay, Eaton center, Nathan Philips Square and Adelaide Park.

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 Toronto such as Chinatown looks so much like Victoria St in Melbourne!

Located close by is the Kensington Market – A walkable bohemian neighbourhood that draws artists and tourists to its indie shops, vintage boutiques and arts spaces.

Queen Street has great access to a lot of land marks like the Eaton's Centre and City Hall. There are still some unique stores left but a lot of them have fallen victim to the box stores and have closed (like a book store that I used to go to). There are plenty of places to eat on the street and you can view TO's iconic street cars. During the holidays, Hudson's Bay has Christmas displays in their windows (across from the Eaton Centre. It is still a great place to get a feel for the city.

Queen Street is not what it used to be. Now it's full of shops like The Gap and Club Monaco. If you are looking for something not found in all the malls, look elsewhere.
