The five most scenic neighbourhoods in Toronto for a stroll
Taking a stroll to clear your mind or relieve workday stress is always a good idea, but it’s an even better idea when walking through neighbourhoods with amazing scenery. Because we are always looking to take a walk on the scenic side, we’ve put together a list of the top five (in our opinion) most scenic neighbourhoods in Toronto for a long and leisurely walk.
We couldn’t make this list without including the Casa Loma neighbourhood. With a setting that’s straight out of a fairy tale, it’s easy to get lost in this area filled with historic homes and leafy-lined streets. Casa Loma has a lot of history and you’ll find the historic mansion once owned by Sir Henry Pellatt is a great place to start. When things open up, this area has plenty of excellent restaurants to choose from, so why not end that walk with a nice meal or glass of something cool?
Rows and rows of colourful Victorian homes line the streets of Cabbagetown. Snatching up some real estate in this area will cost you a pretty penny but walking through the neighbourhood is a treat. History notes that the name “Cabbagetown” came from the immigrant population during the 1800s — they planted cabbages in front yards as a source of nourishment.
