The Danforth has Greektown with all its shops and restaraunts and it has other shopping that makes it worth walking through.

A lot of fun but crowded. It seems that rain loves that time of the year. It used to be mostly Greek but now more elasticities are getting involved.

I love the Danforth, with it's vast array of shops and places to eat, there is so much to see and do. It's fun to hang out and people watch; everyone comes here - families, couples, young and old alike.

Used to be full of Greek restaurants but most have gone - ugly street except right around Broadview subway station where there are some nice shops but not worth the travel time unless you are staying in the neighbourhood.

Wander along the Danforth and you will find a number of lovely shops and great restaurants. Worth a stroll.

The heart of Toronto's Greektown which is more of a strip as it takes up the stretch along this one street, starting from Broadview, and runs just past Pape. Lots of great Greek restaurants. Messini's is one of my all-time faves: tasty, fast, and cheap!

East End
The East End is an eclectic amalgamation of areas that
team up to make this district one of the most
multi-faceted and alluring. Home to Toronto's LGBT
community hub, Gay Village is alive and pumping day or
night with friendly bars, nightclubs, and cafes – its
thumb is on the pulse of excitement. For a more
relaxed day, the East End has the largest collection
of restored Victorian homes, and its stately streets,
