Walked here to get to Chinatown (which is part of this street). If you need to buy a new computer or get it repaired, the area around the corner to Collage Street has unusual amount of computer shops in my opinion. Good street to grab the streetcars, else nothing special.

Spadina Avenue is great! Chinatown is a big part of it, but at it's base it the Rogers Centre which is always great for a game or an event. Chinatown has a great amount of shoppes, food options and artisan offerings. There are clubs, after hours and buildings for the University of Toronto housed just off of Spadina. It's a... More

From the south of Spadina, you walk through the Textile area and north of Queen Street, Chinatown starts and end at College Street. Watch your step. This area can be crowded at anytime of day. Some great deal for souvenirs, food etc

Visitors to Toronto can save themselves a pothole of money by taking a street car to this prodigious street that serves as a paradigm for the distinguished slums of Asia. No need to book an expensive flight to Calcutta or Dakka. It is one of the widest streets in the city, with half its width dedicated to the North-South tramcars... More

There are interesting shops to wander through on your way to either the market or Chinatown. Nice little bohemian-feel neighborhood, lots of bustle and young people. Great transportation choices too. You have the street cars or the subway right there.

Actually I spent 2 nights downtown during Xmas 2012. My friend met me up downtown and we were looking for food. 2 years in a role (2011, 2012), we went to a Korean Restaurant for dinner on Xmas Eve, which was a very nice dinner indeed. The next day, we went King's Noodle for Chinese food on Christmas Day after... More

Park your car and walk along Spadina Avenue. It's the only way to actually enjoy the street. Duck into some of the stores and see some of the unique items.
