Queen St is a good place to walk to kill a few hours if you have no specific plans. The shops and restaurants are so varied - high end to dingy and divey. It was such an odd mixture. Lots of restaurants are located on this street (chains and local places). You can find popular brand name stores like Gap... More

Lots of shops and restaurants. Options for everyone. Chains, local pubs, high-end dining, and sandwich shops mingle with the eclectic crowds. Great for sight-seeing, people-watching, and food-eating. Also a series of public parks and squares lie along this path. Super taste of Toronto.

Funky, trendy street with shops of all kinds. Some are chains and some are one of a kind. A bit away from the high rises and malls.Lots of paces to stop for a snack, drink or meal. An important part of Toronto culture.

I came to Queens street a few times already and it is the perfect place to make pictures of all the graffiti. There are lots of interesting stores with art work, fashion etc. You can also find various cafes, bars and restaurants that very artistic. I always enjoy to discover new places on Queens Street!

If you are bored by abundant offers at front, go see the back. Where potholes, added shacks and falling apart garages, if not for graffiti on them will match any big city slum. There forbidden and persecuted art covers all misery, blossoming with colors and imagination. One can walk there for hours admiring screaming, whispering and amazing pieces continuing for... More

I think the only think I don't like it is the sale tax is high which make most of the retail experience a bit more expensive.

Queen Street is a marvelous place to shop, dine, stroll, people watch and just enjoy the day. The street cars make it easy to travel from spot to spot. Some beautiful parks along the way and so very much to see. Our favorite stop was Clafouti's across from Trinity Bellwnoods Park. Marvelous Croissants and Coffee in a Parisian atmosphere. Go... More

Popped by for a wander and a bit of early morning shopping on a Saturday. Most things however were closed and there weren't many people around. Interesting mix of mainly independent shops, and some graffiti.

There is varied scenery throughout this street. Lovely shops, graffiti'd walls. It's a nice way to spend a sunny afternoon though.
