“Queen St West, or West Queen West as it's known locally, is Toronto's premier walking street, full of small shops and boutiques, coffee shops and restaurants. It's not a tourist street; it's where Torontonians go to shop and play and live. You could devote an entire visit to just walking Queen Street, from Parkdale in the west, through the shopping district right through downtown. Further east, the neighbourhood of Leslieville offers great restaurants and a friendly vibe. Queen St continues even further east, eventually ending up in the iconic Beach neighbourhood, where the city meets the lake and where each year the Beach Jazz Festival, well jazzes up the scene.”
