In the heart of each city we visited in Canada there is a Queen street. And it always lives up to its name.

You are definitely missing out on the Toronto experience if you don't stroll down Queen Street at least once during your visit.

Its a small strip of street but it has few name brand stores and Toronto based store. the stip starts at Bathurst all the way to University so there are quite a few store you can look at.

Another part of Toronto not to be missed, especially for tourists. There's lots of shops and restaurants to visit. Great for an afternoon walk in the city.
