Historic Disrtrict

Historical posh neighborhood in Toronto with old historical mansions restored and maintained with wealth and influence. A drive thru will be just enough to see them.

A very rich neighbourhood, with really interested homes! There isn't much else to do but walk around in here but you are close to mid-town and other nice areas.

Friends of mine live in Forest Hill and whenever I visit Toronto I make sure to drive through this lovely neighborhood. The stone houses are impressive and the streets are warm and inviting, with great restaurants and shops. It's worth an excursion to see this gem.

When visting Toronto, a tour of homes in Forest Hill is a must. There are many consulats, famous hockey players, actors who make their home here. The restaurants in the Village area are great and what a variety of foods. Coffee shops abundant and just a cosy feeling when wandering by car or foot through this beautiful landscape area of...

I was expecting a few block of indie cafes, book shops and boutiques, but what I saw was one intersection full of banks and a Starbucks, where's the Village ?.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its most stylish high-rise residences and heritage buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools, jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
