Go with no rush and start to walk around. Keep browsing between the grungie clotheshops, tattoo parlors, bars, healty food shops and see if you find something unique that wants to go with you. In that time, grab a beer and chill. Perfect to kill and afternoon.

Queen Street crosses Toronto from East to West. Start at either nd. The TTC street car does the entire trip, (one change at Humber Loop) from the Beach though it shifts to the Queensway and then to Lakeshore Blvd before arriving in Long Branch, a former Sunday outing for Torontonians. A fascinating trip through the varied villages of Toronto. The... More

Used to be that Queen Street West was the place to be, but the East end has exploded with wonderful restaurants and shops. Spend a whole weekend walking from one end to the other with the museums in the middle. From Funky to chic, art, antiques, and fashions -- there's something for everyone. Street cars run the whole length and... More

Queen St is a colourful site with many areas to stop and walk around, travel across by Street Car, it is one of the most beautiful streets in Toronto. Go all the way to the Beaches Area and walk a path by lake Ontario. Great for pictures, shopping and eating.

Queen street is very special. Lot of boutiques, restaurants, bars but also LOT of street-art around. Take a walk in the alleys like Graffiti alley (south of Queen) and you will have a lot of fun.

Just a great walk on a sunny day under the bluest of skies! Lots of interesting diverse stores as you walked into central Toronto and the nature of the street constantly changing. Organic bakers at one end and Saks at the other.. walked there and back again (There's always stuff you miss!)

Neighborhood Profile
Queen Street and West Queen West
Known as the Art & Design District, West Queen West is one of the most energetic and dynamic of Toronto's neighborhoods. Along with its great modernist museums, clubs, and restaurants, it's home to some of the funkiest specialty shops, ranging from clothing to stationary to collectables, and caters to niche and vintage shoppers of all kinds. That makes it a mecca for creatives, including hobbyists designers, writers, and painters. With ink on their hands and fabric pelts in their bags, visitors to Queen Street traverse the avant-garde blend of historic architecture and ultra-contemporary fare. Home to some of Toronto's chicest hotels and most modish java fixes, busy with street cars, and always suffused with live music drifting onto packed patios at bars and clubs by nightfall, the vibrancy of West Queen West is undeniable.
