Off the beaten path is a different term here when it comes to shopping.. One of a kind, fashion shops ,local designers,funky, unusual and off the top! Close by Graffiti Alley where you can stroll,coffee in hand and admire the graffiti On the walls or stop in to many of the restaurants or cafes for a bite to eat.

If you’re like me, and try to avoid any chain stores during a visit to another city, then Queen Street is for you. A unique stroll – West of Spinda Avenue, is the best section in my opinion, where you will find mainly unique one of a kind stores. The further West you go, the more interesting the shops.

It's hip, it's funky, it's cool and eclectic... Queen West street in Toronto is considered everything west of Yonge street, however the neighborhood that Vogue was referring to is a stretch from Buthurst to Gladstone street. Everything there, from hidden galleries, to many shops, boutique hotels and restaurants is unique, trendy, artistic, local and utterly engaging. Note that the Museum... More

This street has some great stores with unusual merchandise. I was able to purchase some limited pieces for myself and family. There are some larger retailers along with some local trendy stores. There is something for everyone. Take a stroll down this busy street and enjoy the sites

Probably the most diverse area of the city, there's plenty to look at here in shops, paintings on the side of building and people. This is also a great place to try creative restaurants. This is not a place with chain restaurant but very unique one of restaurants. Weather you're walking the downtown section or the much more laid back... More

Lots of restaurants are located on this street (chains and local places). You can find popular brand name stores like Gap... More
