“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.”

“Enjoy scenic waterfront views 365 days a year from Harbourfront Centre's pristine boardwalk. Stretching along the north shore of Lake Ontario, and located along the Great Lakes Waterfront trail, the boardwalk is often animated with street performers during the summer months and offers access to Toronto's marinas, shops and restaurants, with connections to the Water's Edge Promenade.”

All connected contiguously with a beautiful boardwalk with lots of colourful pairs of Muskoka Chairs to enjoy along the way at Balmy Beach. Just steps north is Queen St. W. and it has lots of unique shops and restaurants along with well-known ones that you are accustomed to as well.
