I LOVED this street, especially coming from San Francisco and being the kind of guy that seeks out areas with a hip vibe, cool bars and unique eateries. This is the street to be on. Daytime shopping is good here, and it's very similar to San Francisco's Haight Ashbury. Unique and original stores, awesome shoes and record shopping, and tons of international cuisine to satisfy even the most discriminating of tastebuds. Lots of night-time activity with bars, pubs and clubs aplenty. The less-talked-about Dundas street also has some great bars and clubs that are primarily known by the locals, so be sure to do your research! Queen Street West is definitely hip with loads to do, but Queen Street East has it's own vibe as well and shouldn't be missed either. It's a bit more sophisticated and refined, with some great finds as well. Enjoy!
