The Beach Vs. The Danforth

Looking for a fun day in the city. Looking to do some walking and dining. A light lunch and dinner will be required. Thought these two areas would be a great introduction to an out of town friend who has been to neither. Any suggestions would be great. She loves to walk and is open to all dining options.

  1. For a full day/afternoon-evening, start at Queen and Broadview and walk east through Riverside, Leslieville and then hit the Beaches. Cover a lot of ground, it's a beautiful walk and there's a zillion places to eat and drink. Do a food crawl, I say.

    PS: stop in for a latte at Te Aro- it'll change your world.

      I was going to suggest the same but in reverse order. Better dinner options in Leslieville :) Grab sandwiches at Brick St for a picnic lunch in the Beach.

        Ok, sounds great. A long leisurely walk sounds perfect.
