We had a TTC day pass, and used it to take the 501 tram from downtown to its western terminus at Long Branch Loop. It was a pleasant day, and quite a few people were out and about. The neighbourhoods along this run are varied and eclectic. The tram is a great means of access – especially with a day... More

Went to Steve's Music. Lots of little shops, restaurants and cafes. Good place to walk around and spend an afternoon or evening.

I quite like this neighbourhood, especially Queen Street West. Lots of interesting shops & eateries. I think this is the upcoming neighbourhood of the city. If I had to start my life all over again, I think I would move to this neighbourhood. Don't be shocked by the number of tattoo parlors & bars.

Queen St East, or Queen West, there is so much diversity! From the mildly pretentious, but upscale beaches and beginning of the Scarborough Bluffs to Midtown Alternative, Fashion and Business. Even Queen west runs out to the far beaches. I love this street. Some "interesting" areas for sure, but safe nonetheless for a saavy traveller. Something you need to see... More

This is one of Toronto's best neighbourhoods to walk, shop and eat. Don't miss this area of the city. There are many small shops and restaurants to check out and explore.

Lots to see in the area including a good mix of restaurants, shops and bars. This area is also home to Graffiti Alley, which was one of the reasons we ventured there. The street art is contained in an that runs west from Spadina Ave. to Portland St. Some of the graffiti is what you'd expect, but some is truly... More

Staying in East End

Neighborhood Profile
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, tree-lined and bursting at the seams with affluence, often sport farmers markets and street artists, epitomized by the effusive St. Lawrence Market. One of the most gorgeous of Toronto's neighborhoods, it also straddles Lake Ontario in an area called The Beach, where you'll find folks cycling and strolling along the sandy shorelines, getting some sun or enjoying shopping, dining, and pub options. For some fabulous food, the vivacious personalities running the restaurants in the East End's Greektown is only equaled by the fun and authenticity of the street stalls and restaurants at its expansive Indian Bazaar. 'Something for everyone' has never been so accurate.
