243 X Queens Quay W, Toronto, ON M5J 2G8, Canada
List this under "very cool installations." The best part about the "wavedeck" is that you can slide on it (because you know you want to). It's a great, interactive gathering place at water's edge, and it plays on that theme in a whimsical way.
Save Place
The Distillery District, Toronto, ON M5A, Canada
It doesn't take long for a visitor to realize that most of Toronto's activities focus around eating and drinking. A visitor may also notice the stark architecture that competes for space in the sky. Many of Toronto's older buildings aren't...
Save Place
249 Ossington Ave, Toronto, ON M6J 3A1, Canada
The Dakota Tavern is Ossington Avenue's infamous subterranean saloon, an open concept rock bar with glowing skulls mounted on the wall, barn doors leading nowhere, and high-backed whiskey barrel stools surrounding the old oak bar. The Dakota has...

550 Bayview Ave, Toronto, ON M4W 3X8, Canada
After the Don Valley brick factory in Toronto closed in the '80s, the enormous toxic quarry and crumbling industrial buildings were home to various illicit tenants: underground performance art groups, pop-up marijuana farms and ravers with a...
Save Place
93 Front St E, Toronto, ON M5E 1C3, Canada
I love going to markets when I'm on a trip. It's a place where you get a glimpse of people's every day lives. If I live in Toronto, St. Lawrence Market would definitely where I'd shop on weekends. It's a multi-level indoor market where you can...
Save Place
Kensington Ave, Toronto, ON M5T 2K2, Canada
One of the things I liked about Toronto is the different neighborhoods and that each of them had its own open market. I was also pleasantly surprised at the abundance of street art. The photo above was taken on one of the surrounding streets near...
Save Place
279 Augusta Av, Toronto, ON M5T 2M1, Canada
Model Citizen is the bee's knees! For both men and women, there are some really cool clothes here with many Canadian designers. Plus, it's located right in the heart of Kensington Market. Perfect if you're on a weekend stroll. I'm quite fond of...
Save Place
14 Kensington Ave, Toronto, ON M5T 2J7, Canada
If you ask any fashion editor or blogger what the best vintage shop is in Toronto, chances are they're going to tell you that it's Courage My Love in Kensington Market. It's hard not to miss this shop, which has been in business since 1975. If you...
Save Place
63 Ossington Ave, Toronto, ON M6J 2Z2, Canada
Arranged by era, I Miss You Vintage is a well organized, easy-to-shop treasure trove of great pieces. If you want high-end vintage, this is the place to get it. They recently added an extension for bags and accessories. There are some true finds...
Save Place
744 Queen Street West, Toronto, ON M6J 1E9, Canada
Coal Miner's Daughter has two locations, both of which are fantastic, though because I'm on Queen St. more than I'm in Mirvish Village, I'm partial to this location. This boutique is cute and charming, chock full of frocks and jewlery, mainly from...

Luminato Festival is Toronto’s international multiarts festival for people open to having art change their outlook on the world. For 10 days each June, Luminato Festival transforms Toronto’s theatres, parks and public spaces with...
