Travel east on Queen Street across the Don River, and you just might feel like you've left Toronto. Over the past decade, an area that was little more than a collection of derelict buildings and Toronto's Hells Angels headquarters has been rapidly transformed into a thriving stretch of small businesses, stores and restaurants with an artistic, DIY feel (The Hell's Angels have been forced out, too!). The Leslieville neighbourhood along Queen Street East between Broadview Avenue and Coxwell Avenue still maintains a rough-around-the-edges charm that has been embraced by the creative artisans and chefs who now call the area home. Further east along Queen is the Beaches neighbourhood, first settled in 1793. Today, the area still has a small town feel, and the beaches just south of Queen Street here offer a calm oasis from Toronto's hustle and bustle.
