“Great walk through the city”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

Lots of shops and restaurants. Options for everyone. Chains, local pubs, high-end dining, and sandwich shops mingle with the eclectic crowds. Great for sight-seeing, people-watching, and food-eating. Also a series of public parks and squares lie along this path. Super taste of Toronto.

“Good street for walking.”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

Funky, trendy street with shops of all kinds. Some are chains and some are one of a kind. A bit away from the high rises and malls.Lots of paces to stop for a snack, drink or meal. An important part of Toronto culture.

“great atmosphere”
Reviewed 19 June 2014 via mobile

I came to Queens street a few times already and it is the perfect place to make pictures of all the graffiti. There are lots of interesting stores with art work, fashion etc. You can also find various cafes, bars and restaurants that very artistic. I always enjoy to discover new places on Queens Street!

“Back alleys' grafitti on Queen Street West - University to Dufferin”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

If you are bored by abundant offers at front, go see the back. Where potholes, added shacks and falling apart garages, if not for graffiti on them will match any big city slum.
There forbidden and persecuted art covers all misery, blossoming with colors
and imagination. One can walk there for hours admiring screaming, whispering and amazing
pieces continuing for miles with a messages only for some to find and translate.
And if walls don't offer what you were looking for there is always a Starbucks on the bright side.

“Experience in Toronto, good weather in June. We also have seen the rehersal of the musical award on Queen Street.”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

I think the only think I don't like it is the sale tax is high which make most of the retail experience a bit more expensive.
