    The Best Vintage in Toronto, Part I
    By Natalie Taylor

    If you ask any fashion editor or blogger what the best vintage shop is in Toronto, chances are they're going to tell you that it's Courage My Love in Kensington Market.

    It's hard not to miss this shop, which has been in business since 1975. If you look up, you'll see these mannequins on the top of the roof, which have been there for the longest time.

    You can buy beads to make your own jewelry here as well as find some fun accessories. (I've also scored a Banana Republic trench coat for $30.)

    And just in case you need some incense, they have that too!

    Bike-Themed Hipster Bar Love
    By Thomas Junek

    It doesn't get more laid back and cool than this new drinking spot from a group of Toronto bar veterans. Taking over a cheesy, 'skeezy' bar in Kensington Market, the light renovation here kept the charm and dropped the cheese. This is the place to chill with your friends on a weekday. A bonus is that the music selection here is pretty solid (not always the case in Toronto).

    Toronto's Bier Market on Front Street
    By Ashley Castle

    The beer selection at Bier Market is extensive, with pages upon pages of local and foreign brews to delight in. With a big outdoor patio, this is the perfect spot to grab some friends and head for drinks during the summer months. During colder times, the inside is large and everyone is cheery—after all, you’re in a bier market!

    Craft Beer and Funky Food
    By Flash Parker

    Bellwoods hasn't been open long, but it has already made an impression on the Toronto craft beer and food scene.

    Bellwoods and the Group of Seven Chefs put on a brilliant seafood feast that I was lucky enough to be in attendance for; it was the first time I tried raw halibut, geoduck, and a host of other funky sea dwellers. The five-course tasting menu resulted in one of the best meals I've ever had—and that's not even touching on the beers.

    I still can't decide which of their funky brews I like best. It could be the barnyard brilliance of their Farmhouse Saison, the cheek-puckering sour punch of the Muggleweisse, or the just-like-licking-a-pine-tree goodness of the Witchark IPA. I tried every beer on the menu, and a few that weren't, and loved every one of them. I'm amazed I can remember any of it.

    Located in the heart of the Land of Os, Bellwoods, with its fantastic streetside patio, is a place I'm going to visit more often.

    French Flair Bistro at Le Papillon

    Wether your feet are tired from touring the town, you are craving comfort food, need a glass of rosé in the sun or a Grand Marnier to escape the rain, you'll want to find any available reason to duck inside Le Papillon. Their patio faces the hustle of the Financial district but is surrounded by historic buildings, with the CN Tower fading into the background.

    As for the food, it's French Canadian, which means hearty meat tortieres, grandiose stogie-like crepes, and classic desserts.

    Whatever your reason ends up being, the staff are happy to serve you and the prices won't leave your wallet much lighter.

    Graffiti Alley: Local Toronto
    By Natalie Taylor

    The Tour Guys take you on a guided tour of Toronto's Graffiti Alley. As you wind through the alley as well as other points of graffiti in back areas of downtown, you'll get an overview of the history and language of graffiti. It's a great insight into a subculture in our beloved T Dot. There are a lot of talented artists here. Our group also discovered a shop called Bomb Shelter that sells the aerosol paint cans.

    If you're lucky, the guides may even show you where the remains of Banksy's art is.

    Tours run from the spring to mid September, but you can enjoy the alley at any time of year.

    Calling All Sun Lovers
    By Ryna Dery

    I went to Toronto for the first time in the fall of 2010. I expected it to be colder, but I wasn't exactly thrilled that Toronto's fall was like New York's winter. So I was happy to spend a good amount of time indoors in galleries and museums. AGO was one of them, and as a huge Frank Gehry fan I was even happier to spend an almost ridiculous amount of time staring at the AGO building.

    Eventually, I walked toward the back and into the glorious Galleria Italia. All empty on a weekday, the play of wood and light was simply beautiful. It will make you smile, adore the sun, and just stay.

    The World's Tallest Hands-Free Walk
    By Charu Suri

    Unmistakable, like Seattle's Space Needle, the CN Tower in Toronto is a 1,815-foot structure that offers panoramic views of the city. The world's highest full-circle, hands-free walk is just one of the many reasons to visit this city.

    Although I did not get to go up this slender tower, there are treats in store for those who do. People lacking a fear of heights can visit the EdgeWalk, with its a 360-degree tour of the tower and the city. It's the tallest place in the world where you can walk outside, fearless daredevil that you are (note that you'll need a harness, like at the Macau Tower).

    The CN Tower was completed in 1976 and was the world's tallest tower and free-standing structure at the time. Now foodies can rejoice that there is a restaurant here for romantic proposals, celebrations, or just a plain good drink.

    C'est Excellent
    By Christina Saull

    I was desperate for some local eats. After a weekend of chain restaurants and conference food, I was ready to dig into some of Toronto's pub scene. Enter: C'est What?

    Tucked into the Old Town neighborhood, just a 15 minute walk east of downtown, this brewpub is hidden in the basement of an old brick building. Heaping plates of poutine, a beer list as long as Moby Dick, and a really awesome falafel were highlights of our visit. C'est What is really a destination in itself: there's pool, there's live music, there's live sports blasting over the bar.

    The bartender was more than willing to recommend a good local beer to me - the Great Lakes double IPA I had was strong, hoppy, and wonderful (I appreciate the bartender suggesting a half pint, since at 9% alcohol, this is one mighty beer).

    Next time I find myself wandering around Old Town, perhaps after I duck into the St. Lawrence Market, the next place I head to will be C'est What.

    Sugar Beach in Toronto
    By Natalie Taylor

    Sugar Beach is a great chill-out and picnic spot. There's a big Loblaws (grocery store) across the street to get your picnic goods, as well as an LCBO in the vicinity if you need a liquid lunch.

    From the official website:

    "Canada’s Sugar Beach is a whimsical new park that transformed a surface parking lot in a former industrial area into Toronto’s second urban beach at the water’s edge.

    "Located at the foot of Lower Jarvis Street adjacent to the Redpath Sugar Factory, the 8500 square metre (2 acre) park is the first public space visitors see as they travel along Queens Quay from the central waterfront. The park’s brightly coloured pink beach umbrellas and iconic candy-striped rock outcroppings welcome visitors to the new waterfront neighbourhood of East Bayfront."

    Toronto's parks system connections are tremendous; it's nearly possible to get from one corner of the city to the other while stepping foot on nothing but green space (almost).

    Coronation and the Battery Park Trail are great lakeshore spots to explore, especially during the winter, when foot traffic is nearly non-existent.

    Respite from the Madness
    By Thomas Junek

    As much I love the nonstop buzz of my hometown, sometimes one just needs to escape and unwind even if just for an hour or two. The Toronto Music Garden, located in the Harbourfront neighborhood right on Lake Ontario is one of my favorite urban "getaways."

    I love to come here on hot days or warm evenings with my dogs and an iced coffee to just lounge under the trees with a book and people watch. There are a lot of parks in Toronto; however, only the Music Garden offers a view of the harbor and Toronto Island.

    P.S.: There is live, outdoor classical music on offer in the summertime on Thursday and Sunday evenings, weather permitting.

    CN Tower Edgewalk - Just do it!
    By Natalie Taylor

    The CN Tower’s latest attraction, EdgeWalk, takes thrill seekers to new heights. The first of its kind in North America, EdgeWalk is the world’s highest full circle hands-free walk encircling the top of the CN Tower’s main pod, 356 metres, (1168 feet, 116 stories) above the ground. The half-hour experience, which includes re-admission into the CN Tower’s other attractions (Look Out, Glass Floor, Sky Pod Levels, movie, and ride) costs $175.

    For those of you who want to test your adventurous limits, this is one vertical challenge you won't forget!

    After seeing the CN Tower from many vantage points in the city, I can honestly say there is no view of the city like this -- or experience for that matter. Just do it! The staff take great care of you and eases you into the "leaning out" process. I can guarantee even if you're scared, it's something you won't stop talking about afterwards!
