I really thought I was in for some kind of a treat. Nothing special whatsoever. My hometown of Rochester, NY has better shopping on Park Ave and believe me: that's not saying much. It was nice to have a little less population than in the heart of toronto but I wouldn't bother making the effort to get to bloor west... More

Wanting to do something a little bit different on Mother's Day with my family, I suggested a stroll through Bloor West Village. It seems alot of other people had the same idea, although we had no issue finding parking across the street from High Park. What I really like about this area is how few big box retailers are in...

This is where i grew up in the 60'-70's. It was a quaint 'village' at that time with interesting shops, fruit stores and meat markets. This high rent area has changed that somewhat and the feeling is not quite as quaint. It is still a nice place to shop with some European stores still surviving. The Humber river park and... More

Bloor West is a great village filled with a diverse array of shops and places to eat. It's a nice walk and great place to visit if you're looking for lunch or coffee. Unfortunately my favourite Bloor West destination, Chapters Runnymede (a converted theatre bookshop) has recently closed. Is a great idea to combine a visit to Toronto's beautiful High... More

Great shopping, you can find many boutiques selling clothes, shoes, sports gear, health food, lots of coffee shops, bakeries, pubs and restaurants. It is always busy but I love that! It has around 400 businesses on a 3 km stretch. Love it!

A very scenic area right next to High Park. Not a great street for shopping, but a lovely place to go for a meal or a few drinks.
