Chill Toronto Neighborhood

Expert Pick Family Time Off The Beaten Path

167 Wineva Ave
(at Queen Street East)
Toronto, ON M4E 2T5


Bounded by Queen East to the north and between Coxwell and Victoria Park, this quaint neighbourhood, a trendy area that is home to many students, professors and media types, is one of Toronto's hidden treasures. It is overflowing with antique shops, one-of-a-kind stores, hot night spots and restaurants embracing a wide variety of cuisines. From spring through fall, the boardwalk down by Ashbridge's Bay Park on Lake Ontario is crowded with joggers, bikers, rollerbladers, people walking their dogs and picnickers. Winter brings on skating, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.
