Check out Toronto's Great Diversity of Neighbourhoods

Toronto is Canada’s largest city and also its most culturally diverse.  Over the years, the city has evolved from a small colonial outpost to a thriving, globalized and culturally diverse metropolis.  Toronto’s neighbourhoods are incredibly varied, reflecting the city’s exceptional diversity.  Here are a few great Toronto neighbourhoods to check out this summer.  See here for a complete list.


Downtown Yonge

Located on Yonge (pronounced “young”) between Front and Bloor Streets, Downtown Yonge is Toronto’s most bustling and vibrant neighbourhood full of great shopping, dining and entertainment.   While you’re there check out the world-renowned and recently renovated Eaton Centre, which is home to over 350 great shopping destinations.  Downtown-Yonge is also a hotbed of street entertainment and events.  This Saturday July 26, check out the UNITY concert from 1-10pm at Yonge-Dundas Square, featuring hip-hop performances by school and community groups.  You can view the full summer event calendar here.


Queen West

The absolute trendiest shopping district in Toronto, Queen West is located between Simcoe and Bathurst Streets on Queen Street.  Here you’ll find an eclectic mix of fashion shops, art galleries and indie bars that are open late and often feature live reggae or jazz music. 

Kensington Market

The modern day incarnation of Kensington Market began when the area’s historic Jewish population set up stands on their front steps selling wares to their neighbours.  As successive groups of immigrants arrived, they too carried on the tradition to build what is today one of the most diverse and colourful neighbourhoods in all of the country.  Here you can wander narrow alleyways, witness brightly coloured Victorian houses and sample food and products from practically any culture in the world.  Kensington Market is a Toronto experience you won’t want to miss.
Welcome to the great city of Toronto.  While staying at the BEST WESTERN PLUS Travel Hotel Toronto Airport this summer we hope you have the time to sample a few of Toronto’s outstanding neighbourhoods.  Our friendly staff will be happy to assist you with any questions you might have.  Book your stay with us today!
