“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.”

“"We went for a steam whistle brewery tour this past weekend, and it was a great experience. Not only do they give you an abundance of their beer to enjoy while on the tour, we actually learned quite a bit of information on what goes into making such a great tasting beer!! I would recommend taking this tour if you want to learn a little more behind the scenes of what it takes to make beer!! The cost is very reasonable, so is the length of the tour!!!! Cheers steam whistle for making learning something new fun!!!"”

Sports Bar
$$
“Couldn't get tickets to the game? Then this might be the next best thing... if you like beer and good pub grub. This place is located right next to the AC so if there is a Toronto game you don't have to go far to join in winning celebrations. This place is massive, it's the largest sports bar in the city, however, it is very popular so it's advised to get their early so you can get in, and even earlier if you want a seat.”

“This truly is a Toronto staple... it's a long standing restaurant on College, and this says a lot as College sees a lot of turn over. The food is Spanish inspired, and set in an old-world vibe. If this is your thing, then check this place out! And then walk along College to have a drink after at one of the many bars long the strip.”
