This street is amazing, from little shops to big commercial center you will be able to find many different things. You will see amazing street arts everywhere and walk to the side streets to look at that.

There are a lot of walls that have interesting graffiti painted on them. that was one of the reason i decided to go and visit this place. This place is a bit difficult to find. I found the streets to be a bit dirty and they will not give you an uptown feel. Nevertheless worth a visit once

If you want to wander, check out shops and bars, this is a great place to go. Taking your time, window shopping or going inside you cannot go wrong.

Queen Street and West Queen West
Known as the Art & Design District, West Queen West is one of the most energetic and dynamic of Toronto's neighborhoods. Along with its great modernist museums, clubs, and restaurants, it's home to some of the funkiest specialty shops, ranging from clothing to stationary to collectables, and caters to niche and vintage shoppers of all kinds. That makes it a mecca for creatives, including hobbyists designers, writers, and painters. With ink on their hands and fabric pelts in their bags, visitors to Queen Street traverse the avant-garde blend of historic architecture and ultra-contemporary fare. Home to some of Toronto's chicest hotels and most modish java fixes, busy with street cars, and always suffused with live music drifting onto packed patios at bars and clubs by nightfall, the vibrancy of West Queen West is undeniable.
