Great for a stroll! Cafes, parks, restaurants, and the funk!

Wow, review all of Queen street? The beaches in the east end is a great place to be in the summer. So much pedestrian traffic with a small town feel. Continue west to Leslieville... read more

If you want a fun place to shop this is your street! Drama queen is a must. Unique costume jewelry that you cant find in the states. My daughter and I had a great time shopping here!

A variety to places from far East to furhter West, a mixture of stores, parks, interesting people. Amazing restaurants, art galleries, designers stores. Antiques, second hand stores, you named and pretty sure you would find it on Queen Street. Required time to really find treasures along the way. Highly recommended.

There was so much to see and buy. My kids didn't get bored, even after 3 hours of walking. So much selection and good deals to be found. A lot of trendy restaurants and shops to check out. Also loved Steve's music store.

Super trendy street. Love it here! Very fashionable people walk and shop on this street. Lots of cool stores - mostly clothing. Buying stuff from here will DEFINITELY be a better experience than trying to buy anything at the Eaton Centre. Staff at all the stores are more friendly and there aren't other people trying to snatch your deals before... More

Looking to try an activity that would allow me to stay dry and warm but still see some of the City I thought I'd give the streetcar 501 a go. I read it as being described as one of the longest tram routes in North America and the number one tram ride in the world by National Geographic so thought... More

Was in Toronto on vacation with family visiting with family. My young family members (local to Toronto) suggested we go walk around on Queen Street West. We were game for anything and went. This is a must see when going to Toronto. It is a the hip part of town with tons of shopping, eating places, and just fun place... More

Queen Street has everything. Literally, everything. From vintage shops, to chain restaurants, hole in the wall restaurants (but the best food you will ever have!), shopping, coffee shops, etc. I could spend hours wandering the street (in good weather, of course). The street is alive, bustling with people coming and going, and I find it quite enjoyable to spend time... More

They are trying really hard (probably too hard) to be cool here. While the artsy-fartsy area used to extend only a few blocks, it now extends, both east and west for miles. The eclectic mix of restaurants and bars are worth a visit by themselves
