In the past few years, Queen St. W has been transformed into a popular shopping district. With stores ranging from The Condom Shack
to The Silver Snail
to the Gap
shoes, the section of the street between University and Spadina Avenues has something for everyone. On weekends during the summer, the street comes alive with street vendors, The Word On the Street
book festival, the guy that draws with chalk on the pavement, and the guy with the sign that says "Money for Weed" (the back says -- "Or Beer"). Steps away from John and Richmond
streets which house the Paramount IMAX multiplex theatre
along with a Sega Playdium
bookstore, Queen St. West is a lively place day and night.
How to get there: Take the subway to Osgoode station and find the exit that points to University Ave.
