15 minutes from downtown Toronto, bordered by Kingston Road to the north, east to Victoria Park, west to Leslie Street and south to the lake is The Beaches, one of the city’s most coveted residential areas. With its side streets mostly lined with semi-detached and large-scale Victorian, Edwardian and new style homes, it is hardly any wonder that many consider this one of the jewels in Toronto’s real estate crown.
Queen Street East offers myriad shops and restaurants providing not only a defining commercial hub, but a neighbourly, almost village-like environs. The waterfront Beaches Park is often the cultural centre of The Beaches through late spring into the autumn, offering residents, visitors and tourists alike innumerable events such as jazz concerts, fairs, art shows and more.

And then, there is the beach itself, with its boardwalk extending over three kilometers and a single uninterrupted stretch of sandy beaches perfect for running, walking, cycling, swimming and enjoying the many fireworks festivals throughout the year.
Quiet, friendly and laid back with its relaxed small-town vibe, The Beaches is understandably known as a great place to raise a family in Toronto. With its many parks, schools and shops and one of the lowest crime rates in the city, this is one real estate pocket worth the viewings.
