Great vibe. Very bohemian. Loads of places to eat on Queen Street. The beaches never get too crowded except around the volley ball nets. Great for kids too. It's a shame that you can't always go in the water because of pollution though.

visit this area for the first time. Beautiful old homes and merchants. Too bad it was raining at the time, we would have loved to enjoy the beach much more. So much to see and explore.

Quaint neighbourhood on the water that is pretty self-contained with pubs, restaurants and cafes, movie theatres, supermarkets and about 100 dog businesses!

Beautiful place to walk and best ever chocolate shop in the world is there -- forgot the name but it starts with a W --don't be tricked into going to the other chocolate shop -- this one was amazing. Also, great bead/jewelry store -- reasonable prices and very extensive collection of beautiful handcrafted earrings, necklaces, etc.

One of my favourite summer places to go and walk around. Lots of great little shops and restaurants. The Beaches has a vibe all of it's own that is not found anywhere else in the city. Close to the water and lots of park space to check out as well. They have markets and craft/jazz shows in the summer as well. I definitely recommend the Beaches, but only in the summer time.
