Has pockets of beautiful houses, but there are many poor drab areas and it is overrated. To to Rosedale, Lawrence Park to see more beautiful homes

This park has, hands down, the best view of the Toronto skyline. Whether it's night or day, summer or winter, you can sit for hours looking at the skyline from Broadview Avenue. In the winter it's also a great place for some tobogganing. Don't forget to check out Rooster Cafe across the street for some great homely coffee and sweet... More

A good tour with Chef Scott of Culinary Adventures. Scott knows his way around this area and we had a good time and excellent food. This where Toronto started so it is historically significant. Did not have time to see Chinatown and the Distillery District so do not know where this stands in regard to those sections of the city.

My favourite thing to explore in this area is Riverdale Farm. It used to be the zoo when I was a kid. Worth exploring this little piece of country in the city.

Noe much to do, but it's a nice walk. If you have an hour or so to kill, go to Riverdale Farms or check out the farmers markets on the weekends.

Staying in East End

Neighbourhood Profile
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, tree-lined and bursting at the seams with affluence, often sport farmers markets and street artists, epitomized by the effusive St. Lawrence Market. One of the most gorgeous of Toronto's neighborhoods, it also straddles Lake Ontario in an area called The Beach, where you'll find folks cycling and strolling along the sandy shorelines, getting some sun or enjoying shopping, dining, and pub options. For some fabulous food, the vivacious personalities running the restaurants in the East End's Greektown is only equaled by the fun and authenticity of the street stalls and restaurants at its expansive Indian Bazaar. 'Something for everyone' has never been so accurate.
