Beautiful place to walk and best ever chocolate shop in the world is there -- forgot the name but it starts with a W --don't be tricked into going to the other chocolate shop -- this one was amazing. Also, great bead/jewelry store -- reasonable prices and very extensive collection of beautiful handcrafted earrings, necklaces, etc.

One of my favourite summer places to go and walk around. Lots of great little shops and restaurants. The Beaches has a vibe all of it's own that is not found anywhere else in the city. Close to the water and lots of park space to check out as well. They have markets and craft/jazz shows in the summer as... More

Anywhere on Queen St.E from Victoria Park up to Woodbine Ave and you'll love the many restaurants, cafes, and bauble shops. Make sure you walk south down any of the sidestreets and get on the boardwalk.....a nice refreshing way to spend an afternoon !

We are lucky to have friends who live in The Beaches. Always enjoy the shops and restaurants. Very close to downtown but a million miles away in character!

great boardwalk and clean beaches to sun or sit in the shade and recollect all that needs to be done and done. Shops and restaurants just a skip away. Bike or take the transit there!

"The Beaches" now officially called "The Beach" is an area in the Eastern part of Toronto. The Queen streetcar takes you right there. If you get off at "Kew Gardens" you'll find yourself right in the center of antique stores, restaurants (great brunches) and of course the board walk. The board walk allows you to live the seasons on Lake... More

I live not far from the beaches and they are so great to have a nice long relaxing walk in the evening and good for a jog in the sunset along the board walk..

The Beaches is a very beautiful, special, unique location found in the east end of Toronto along the lake front. It is as if it is a little community or village separate and all on its own from the larger city. The area has sandy beaches for relaxing and suntanning, a boardwalk for strolling, parks and playgrounds for children and... More

A nice little stroll, even when the weather's not great. A good selection of pubs off the beach, too - although they're not very lively until the warmer months.
