“There is something for everyone”
Reviewed 8 May 2013

You can spend an entire day there literally. Start of at Queen and Dundas West head east.
If you are nostalgic you will love the antique shops . They are a coimplete blast from the past. It is hear when you take a walk down memory lane.
This is a great walk on a sunny day but you have to start early
From there you eventually will reach a park Bellwood Park. This is a great place for a picnic! You will find many people doing the same.. After being well rested you can continue on your journey.
When you arrive near Bathurst and Queen you will arrive at my personal favorite My personal favorite ." Graffiti Alley" Here you can see Torontos Great Culture while dodging in and out of many stores.. They day is yours!!! you can do what you want on your own timeline. But dont forget to stop for dinner :)

“When you are tired of West Queen West.......”
Reviewed 1 February 2013

you are tired of living! Really remarkable hip, friendly, edgy, extraordinary variety of humans(and their dogs)! Restaurants, shops, parks all on quite pedestrian friendly streets. This is my preferred destination when I visit Toronto. The music scene is lively and varied. Restaurants for every price point and taste. One of a kind shops abound and it's a short walk to Kensington Market . And even if you are not a dog person there is a variety of well behaved dogs out walking their owners that is extremely striking!Looking forward to four nights there week after next.

“How hip can you get”
Reviewed 22 October 2012

Queen West is hip central for Toronto. Boutiques and specialty shops line the streets. Bookstores, vintage clothes, art and the best of all, Steve's Music Go to Steve's. Buy a guitar. Sit beside a cafe and busk..

“Nice neighborhood”
Reviewed 30 September 2012

If you are tired of shopping in a big center, there are the ciutest shops with some nice art galleries. We loved this street but be sure to start at Bathurst street
