Nice little shops and unique restaurants between Holmwood and First Avenue (i.e. avoiding Landsdowne - although in the Glebe you should check out reviews of that specifically).

Nice place to go out for a walk or a bike ride along the canal. Much like the rest of the canal, very pretty scenery.

It's an experience of often finding what is unique and different from the usual run of the mill stores

Everything that you want...an area to walk and browse...and buy. I go there at least two times a week ( and I live 30 minutes distance). It has a great atmosphere, and a variety of services.

A great stroll along Bank Street, which offers something for everyone. A highlight for me is always Mrs. Tiggy Winkles' (a toy shop for kids of any age) and the Great Glebe Emporium (a kitchen store). Very walkable.

A great part of town for strolling and shopping. I picked up some unique Christmas gifts, some top-of-the-line skin care products at Accent on Beauty and met a friend for coffee at Bridgehead.
