Parking is horrible in the beaches. You've been warned. Most residents insist it's called "the beach" and there's actually some spirited debate on the topic. Queen St here is a short walk to the boardwalk and lake, the whole area has a feel similar to Kitsilano in Vancouver and is every bit as expensive to live in.Indi and big box stores mingle with indi winning out on most corners. The Firkin on the south side of Queen has an excellent people watching patio. Very nice area to stroll in summer.
