“Queen Street Window Shopping”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

Great way to spend an afternoon. Beautiful flowers everywhere. Benches for the men to sit on while the ladies shop. Niagara on the Lake is a great town with many historical sites.

Reviewed July 16, 2012

Queen Street East is a bit mundane but Queen Street West is very hip.

“The new and the old”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

This area was cool before I was born and will likley stay that way after I die. My parents visited this part of town in the 1964's to visit the hippies! The portion closest to the subway has been taken over by big box stored ( the entertainment district is to the south). As you keep walking to the west the street just gets more and more interesting - food, shoping, the best knitting supply stores in town. ( A note to the US visitors, do not be put off by the drug rehabilitation centre - keep walking - this is a nice part of town and very safe day or night - Canada does not segragate these type of clinics as often happens in the US. This comment courtacy of a fellow I dated up from the US who was getting increasingly nervous until I pointed out all the business people intigrated with the rest of the folks.)

“Walk, walk, walk”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

A very long stretch of world class linear retail. Go from Yonge Street to past Ossington. This will take an hour without stops. If you want to shop, prepare for a morning or afternoon. This strip lacks nothing, food of all kinds, great fashion shops, sex paraphernalia, drug stuff, t shirts, tools, electronics, comics, buttons, fabric, musical instruments............you get the pic. The eastern strip has been mallificated over the past several years, so expect to see the usuals but still worth going. West of Spadina the going gets good with more one offs and cooler stuff.
