Downtown Toronto! Take a lakeside stroll along the beautiful 3 km boardwalk. Then enjoy small-town charm one block away on Queen Street E. with its eclectic shops, sidewalk cafes, and vibrant restaurants.

This is an intensely compacted, mostly single-family urban housing area with tiny lots and limited parking. It is a good place for walking, either on the beach, boardwalk, parks in along Queen Street.

Just a lovely place close to the lake, its nice and has a park and many shops and restaurants and also bars. Beautiful during summer to walk and explore it and try different bars in there.

A nice area to spend a sunny day when you're stuck in the city. Lounge around on the beach and plenty of nice little restaurants and bistros to choose from.

Although Toronto is a city destination and there is a harbour that takes you to the small islands. We were determined to explore the beach areas. The Beach Village along Queen St E, takes you an area of bars, restaurants, quirky shops and a boardwalk.

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,

The beach is far better for almost any occasion, especially Canada Day. Niagara Falls is one of the tackiest, most touristy places on earth. Niagara-on-the-Lake is nicer, and caters to people touring the wine region. Lots of... More
