your top list for the coolest neighbourhoods of toronto

After being a week in Toronto I’ve seen so much of this city. Had a great time strolling around in the neighbourhoods like Parkdale and Kensington Market where there are so many vintage stores or paid a visit to the most trendy concept stores in the areas of West Queen West and Trinity Bellwoods. There is so many to see! To have dinner in the evening my personal favourites where the last two neighbourhoods mentioned. You can find the one hotspot after another on the streets of Ossington Ave, Dundas Street West, College Street and Queen Street West. They’re all doable to get there by foot so you can easily explore this neighbourhood while walking. Don’t feel like strolling around? In that case you can use one of the bikes that can be found everywhere across the city. For example next to the Trinity Bellwoods Park there’s a stand where you can pick up one of those city bikes. Are you travelling to Toronto anytime soon make sure to check out all the other blogs about this amazing city in our extensive Toronto Travel Guide. Tip: close to the area of Ossington Ave you can find lots of street art!

Toronto Travel Tips

>> THIS IS HOW YOU’LL GET THERE: Jet Airways offers daily flights from Amsterdam to Toronto from € 402,-. You’re there in a little over 8 hours! During my last trip I flew in their Première Class and the food was honestly so good. Absolutely recommended if you love Indian food like me!

>> THIS IS WHERE YOU’LL STAY: Toronto has several nice neighbourhoods where you can stay, but if you’re more into the trendy areas the district around Queen Street West and Ossington Ave is recommended.
Drake Hotel: without a doubt the most trendy hotel in Toronto. With a mere 19 rooms and an amazing rooftop bar where you can have a drink after a day in the city.
