Riverdale
Once called Riverside, Riverdale is a popular family neighbourhood running east of the Don Valley Parkway (DVP) to just beyond Pape Avenue, and extending several blocks north and south from Danforth Avenue. The Danforth strip often referred to as Greektown which features pubs, lounges, clothing and curio shops, as well as fantastic restaurants serving up scrumptious souvlaki and moussaka. Each summer, get a big dose of the flavours, sights and sounds of Greek culture at the Taste of the Danforth street festival. Year-round, you can browse the produce at many appealing greengrocers, or patronize The Big Carrot, which offers organic produce, health food and other natural products.

Leslieville
Nestled between Riverdale and The Beach, this up-and-coming east-end neighborhood is a harmonious combination of city life and breezy beach-town life; nearby Toronto Film Studios adds a touch of Hollywood. Boutiques, bakeries, coffee shops, organic butchers and grocers decorate the main Queen Street strip but the area remains a calm and quiet place for strolling and window shopping. Leslieville is also a trove of gastronomic treasures, such as Tomi Kro and the notorious Nose restaurant. The area is popular with families, as most of its real estate consists of detached and semi-detached homes and townhouses; apartment complexes are sparse.

The Beach
Feel like you're in a quaint beach town without ever leaving the city. Ever popular, The Beach is inhabited by families, singles and students. Located north of Lake Ontario and south of Kingston Road, between Coxwell and Victoria Park avenues, the area features an appealing array of eclectic shops and restaurants. In summer, the three-kilometre lakeside boardwalk, beach volleyball courts and annual Beaches Jazz festival draw thousands. Much of the housing stock is modest, and therefore suitable for couples needing a starter home. That fact, combined with the prime location and increased interest from young professionals working downtown, has pushed prices up. Here you’ll find detached and semi-detached family homes, townhouses and condos.
