Let’s face it. Toronto is Toronto. The entire city has a vibe. From Long Branch to West Hill, the city bleeds Red, White and Diversity. While living in the core may not be for everyone, here are 3 residential neighbourhoods in Toronto that give you the lifestyle of living downtown, but without the headache!
One of Toronto’s most coveted residential neighbourhoods and is well designed for families! Like the core, everything is within walking distance and the streets are uber pedestrian friendly.
The Kingsway lies just north of Bloor and south of Dundas between Royal York and the Humber River.
Shopping and supporting local is what The Kingsway residents are accustomed to. The shops on Bloor Street west are a good mix of independent, small businesses and chains.
Is it the upper beach? Is it Kingston Road Village? No, it’s Birchcliffe.
This family friendly neighbourhood is located just north of the beach, but still within walking distance to the boardwalk.
The revitalization of Kingston road is bringing in new condo developments at a fraction of the downtown core and littered with boutique restaurants and staples like Feathers Bar.
One of the most popular neighbourhoods for those looking for life outside the core.
Leaside is one of the more affordable pockets in North Toronto with Tudor and Georgian style homes.
While Leaside isn’t as pedestrian friendly as some other neighbourhoods; everything you need is right on Bayview Avenue where you can spend hours dining, shopping and indulging in guilt-free delights!
