Lawrence Market remains a must visit it has changed locations over the years but this market has been around in one form or another dating all the way back to 1803 bagels seafood peameal or Canadian bacon and all manner of international dishes can be found here and that’s without mentioning the fresh produce specialty goods meats and cheeses available at the various stands the distillery district this historic pedestrian-only area of town is the perfect place to go walk off some of that food you no doubt over indulged in while visiting the market an idyllic place for a stroll morning noon or night the distillery district is characterized first and foremost by the beautiful Victorian architecture, which helped earn the neighbourhood its status as a National Historic Site of Canada in 1988 true to its name it was once home to the good room and warts distillery nowadays the beautiful buildings are full of shops galleries cafes and restaurants it hosts a market on Sundays and the city’s much celebrated Christmas market hi Park this massive green space occupies a whopping 400 acres of Toronto real estate on the western side of the city’s waterfront one full third of it remains undeveloped and left in a natural state, making High Park a true oasis of calm within the city, where people can go to get away from it all on the more developed side you’ll find numerous playgrounds walking paths structures and gardens as well as grenadiers pond a Nature Center the High Park Zoo and the historic Colburn Lodge if you can be sure to visit in springtime when the Japanese cherry trees are blossoming. The Toronto Islands: when you’ve got limited time in the city leaving the mainland can sometimes seem like a bit of a hassle but if you’ve got an extra morning or afternoon to spare you really should take the trip to the Toronto Islands it’s only a short 13 minute ferry ride and when you arrive you will immediately understand the appeal collectively referred to as Island Park or simply the island this grouping of 15 islands is connected via bridges and paths making it a cyclist and nature lovers paradise you can easily walk from one end to the other stopping at the beaches and picnic spots along the way you can even rent kayaks one of the nicest things about Toronto Island it offers an incredible view of the city skyline grafitti alley regardless of your stance on graffiti you can’t help but appreciate the talent on display in the city one of the best places to see a showcase of local artwork is Toronto’s aptly named graffiti alley okay today in the fashion district at first glance this unconventional attraction looks like any other back street dumpsters recycling bins and the service stores to various businesses but take a walk down this alleyway between Spadina and Portland East and you will be blown away of course this is just your starting point you should be on the lookout for impressive murals and street art all across the city Kensington Market a destination that requires little introduction this neighborhood in downtown Toronto is among the city’s most popular with visitors and locals alike multicultural and a vibrant hub there’s something for everyone here it’s not a market in the traditional sense but rather a motley assortment of businesses shops restaurants bars and cafes owned by people who love what they do and do it their own way no matter how many times you visit you’ll always find something new from the perfect pastry shop to a charming little vintage store Kensington Market and the eyes of many is the cultural heart of Toronto Queen Street West among the most famous streets in the entire city this is a shoppers delight here you’ll find many of the world’s best and most popular major retailers and pretty much all price points of course you don’t get to be one of the city’s most popular streets by being a one-trick pony as you walk its length Queen Street West slowly but surely delivers on all fronts bars restaurants pastry shops Live Music Venues home decor specialty and vintage clothing stores day or night if you want it chances are that Queen Street West has got it the Scarborough Bluffs it might be a bit more out-of-the-way than most places on our list today but that’s part of its appeal Scarborough Bluffs offers something unique for your time in Toronto bordering the incredibly multicultural Scarborough section of Toronto the bluffs run along the eastern portion of the city’s waterfront and encompass nine different parks including bluffers Park where you’ll even find a beach the unexpectedly majestic escarpment certainly makes the area a must visit for photographers stretching over nine miles long the bluffs are among the city’s most underappreciated gems Chinatown most major cities in North America have a Chinatown and if you’ve seen a fair number of them you’ll know that they are not all created equal Toronto’s is simply a cut above home to a wide variety of Chinese as well as Vietnamese Thai and Japanese restaurants and businesses there is some truly incredible and authentic not to mention diverse food to be sampled here what immediately becomes clear when you set foot on these stretches of Dundas Street West or Spadina Avenue is that there’s a very strong sense of community and cultural identity Trinity Bellwoods Park conveniently located in Toronto’s West End Trinity Bellwoods Park is where locals go to celebrate good weather on weekends or all summer long for that matter this roughly 36 acre park becomes a hub of activity Sun worshipers sprawl on the grass dogs chase friends play frisbee slackline and have picnics together while perfect strangers come together to dance to the rhythm of the drums in short it’s summer paradise in the city so when you need a little break from all that shopping and eating while navigating the crowded Toronto streets take a little break at Trinity Bellwoods Park Ossington strip many of Toronto’s little neighborhoods both official and unofficial have their own unique identities subdivided as such the city becomes just a little bit easier to understand and explore our next example Ossington Avenue
