Wedged between Leslieville, the Upper Beaches, and The Beaches, this family neighbourhood might not garner the same level of attention as its neighbours, but the Greenwood and Coxwell neighbourhood can offer a very similar living experience — at price points that are more inviting than those found in The Beaches.
Banded to the north by Danforth Ave and to the south by Lake Shore Blvd, this neighbourhood covers a vast swath of land, and is crossed by multiple major thoroughfares. Residents have a plethora of dining options spread throughout the neighbourhood, and a range of diverse menus with international cuisine from all over the world. Of course, you’ll also find the usual staples like McDonald’s.
Queen Street and Danforth both offer a variety of nightlife options — there are great pubs for craft beer such as The Wren and Morgans On The Danforth, and to the west you’ll find the Danforth Music Hall, and live music bars for local talent.
