The Irish immigrated here to escape the potato famine but had little to eat after they arrived. They used the small areas in the front of these houses and planted cabbage. Thus the name Cabbagetown. Full of lovely Victorian homes. Walk the streets and enjoy...More

Though not the most attractive or eclectic neighbourhood in Toronto, this is maybe the most attractive and eclectic that is close to the central sites and yet not overrun by tourists. There are abundant coffee shops and places to eat, but the best way to...More

I was expecting it to be a bit more folksy but nevertheless, it's a great place to walk around to get away from the crowds. Some great photo opportunities and quite a full morning if you take in the Necropolis and Allan Gardens.

My partner and i were exploring the area and bumped into the festival. The roads were closed to many many stalls. There were live bands on every intersection, people on stilts and lots of fun for everyone. We also visited a lot of the stores...More

Interesting section of Toronto. More quaint restaurants and shoppes to stop in. If you wander off the main drag right there you will see some wonderful homes and landscaping - just beautiful and picturesque.

We went through Cabbagetown on the bus but I wished we had got off here. It looked really quirky and like a friendly place to wander round. Hopefully I will get to go back to Toronto so I can walk round and experience the area...More

It's quite your average high street - places to eat and basic shops and services you would expect to see on most high streets. The houses provided a quaint atmosphere (not being from Toronto I cannot say if this is usual for Toronto suburbs). The...More

Cabbagetown is not so much about the front streets but rather the back ones. We started at Maple Leaf Gardens and walked to Allan Gardens and on to Ontario Street where we cut up into Winchester Square Park and Winchester Park before cutting over to...More

Cabbage town has been a place of community and transition. Many who migrate to T.O. move through this community. Oldish homes with tons of character and a friendly welcoming community.

Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
