’ an On­tario ex­pat. I’ve never worked there or lived nearby. So when peo­ple have told me Toronto is a cul­ture­less con­crete jun­gle  lled with in­vest­ment bankers and ugly sky­scrapers (and, gasp, no trees!) Ibe­lieved the ru­mours, happy to spend my $700 on at­icket to Mex­ico in­stead of a round trip to “the Six,” as Drake has now de­cided it’s called. But, guys, I was dead wrong.

There are her­itage build­ings for days, peo­ple of all ages  lling the side­walks, com­mu­nal party squares and pa­tios (de­spite Van­cou­ver sup­pos­edly win­ning the weather game, Toronto is, in­ex­pli­ca­bly,

lousy with pa­tios, which stay buzzing year-round), and some of the best bou­tique shop­ping and farm-to-fork din­ing this side of…well, Canada. Sorry, Van­cou­ver—you’ve got some com­pe­ti­tion.—

The Strip Eat your heart out, Rob­son Street. Toronto’s Queen Street West is bou­tique shop­ping at its “Oh, where’d you get that?” finest.
