The East End
The East End is an area of the City of Toronto. The East End is to the east of Downtown and it stretches from the beautiful shores of Lake Ontario all the way up to Danforth Avenue. It is a very diverse area and it is made up of many wonderful neighbourhoods including the Danforth Village, Leslieville, Playter Estates, Riverdale and The Beaches.
Two of the biggest highlights of the East End are the Danforth and Leslieville. The Danforth is also known as Greektown and it is the largest Greek neighbourhood in all of Canada. Leslieville, once very rundown, is now one of the hippest and up-and-coming areas of Toronto. It is a lovely little stretch of the East End that is dotted with colorful galleries, delicious restaurants, high-end furniture stores and a myriad of antique stores to explore as well as so much more.
Some other lovely areas of the East End include its northern region, the Beaches and Little India. The northern region of the East End is a primarily residential area in which you will find some of Toronto’s oldest Victorian houses. The Beaches is a great neighbourhood full of restaurants, shops and bars as well as a beautiful beach and boardwalk that runs along the edge of Lake Ontario. Little India is another fabulous neighbourhood in the East End that attracts visitors from all over the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) especially in the summertime.
