The second annual NXT City Night could not have been a bigger hit. Hundreds of urban planning aficionados flocked to the old St. Andrew’s Market Hall to find out what the winning idea would be this year. The ideas this year were even more innovative, detailed, and creative than they were last year, so we were really excited to find out who would be named the winner.
If there was a place in Toronto that was made for Instagram, it’s the Toronto Islands. Made up of a chain of smaller islands, heading to the Toronto Islands in the summer is the easiest way to feel like you’ve escaped the city without actually having to leave. The islands also contain multitudes: beaches, an airport, restaurants and cafes, a beautiful boardwalk, an amusement park, a small residential community, multiple boat clubs, and so much more to explore. It’s no wonder that there’s always a line for to get on the ferry in the summer, but it’s well worth the wait.
Market Street is the not-so-hidden gem of the St. Lawrence Market neighbourhood.
It’s a small street that’s jam-packed with some of the city’s best places to eat and shop. The cobblestone roads make you feel like you’re in a European city, while the surrounding heritage buildings make you appreciate Toronto’s rich history. It also just so happens to run alongside the centrepiece of the 158 Front neighbourhood, which is of course the St. Lawrence Market.
