Theme Week: Hidden Gems In The City

IMG_1586I can’t tell you how many times I have discovered something- a place or an activity, a restaurant or a park and thought, wow, I can’t believe that I have been living in this city for this long and never knew this existed!

This summer when we explored the Evergreen Brickworks and No.9, I felt very smug. I wanted to proclaim to every non-Torontonian that we have these places in our backyard. I have that same feeling whenever I venture to the Toronto Islands or walk along the Beltline Trail, heck, I even feel that way when I gaze up at the CN Tower. Boastful? Prideful? You bet! I am continually awe-struck by the amazingness this city has to offer.

This week we are going to share a few of our favourite hidden gems in the city. It was painstakingly difficult to narrow it down so we may just have to make this an annual series!

What are some of your favourite places in Toronto? If you’re not from Toronto, what are the hidden gems in your town that everyone must know about?

  1. I’m from Sheridan. I would say the best thing is community support. Normally people go about their daily lives but when you need help there is always someone there to help you. Plus I live in the country and I love driving by all the farm’s and looking at all of the animals.

  2. Restaurant called Five Guys located at York Mills and Leslie on the South side….has very tasty food! And they are very generous with the fries.
