We’ve been many many places around the world and although this area is quaint and old, it’s not the place one would stay for any length of time. 30 percent of these poor souls live in basements as is the norm with these old houses....More

Each year my husband and I visit the Beach to walk along the boardwalk which winds for about 3 miles or more. Great spot for a picnic, lots of trees and benches to sit under. A must for tourists.

One of Toronto's most lovely neighborhoods. Take a short ride from downtown and here you are in the midst of pretty and dense housing with some cool commercial strips with eating and drinking.
