I came here on a Saturday afternoon. I was walking from the St Lawrence Market to Nathan Phillip Square. Nothing special about this street. Just a regular street with some stores and restaurants on either side. I wasn’t able to check out the graffiti alley though. However, there is a really nice art gallery on the nearby King Street called Beauchamp Art Gallery, which had beautiful art works! Like really nice paintings! I was able to spend some time there, marveling at the art works, where I was approached by a kind employee who conversed with me a bit about art and their efforts. I highly recommend checking the art gallery!

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!

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