Queen St. has a street of contradictions, from the wealth of downtown to the poor neighbourhoods on the way west and the slowing gentrifying bits near Roncesvalles. Many of the bookstores are gone but there are still lots of quirky shops and eateries to frequent....More

You can find anything on this street. I've been there a few times, most recently walking from nearly the end (in Parkdale) all the way back to Nathan Phillips Sq. All types of food, coffee, big shopping, thrift shopping... and much more!

It passes through a few cool areas but its mainly the touristy chain stores. The streetcar on this street is your best way to get around. It links to multple subway stops and other streetcar lines. Avoid it at rush hour however, very busy.

East End
The East End is an eclectic amalgamation of areas that
team up to make this district one of the most
multi-faceted and alluring. Home to Toronto's LGBT
community hub, Gay Village is alive and pumping day or
night with friendly bars, nightclubs, and cafes – its
thumb is on the pulse of excitement. For a more
relaxed day, the East End has the largest collection
of restored Victorian homes, and its stately streets,
