The majority of nightlife in Toronto is centred on the appropriately named Clubland and in the fashion district on Queen Street West. Nearly everywhere is packed to the brim with pubs and bars, but none so much as Adelaide and Queen Street in those districts. Clubs tend to operate on Richmond and Adelaide streets (both run east-west, 6 block apart) names change frequently, but the district keeps on going. Four other clubs of note outside this district: The mega club/ultra lounge Muzik Nightclub (by Exhibition Place), The (long-lasting) Phoenix (on Sherbourne), The Government (Toronto's largest club - on the harbour east of Yonge Street) and the Docks (literally operating on part of Toronto's commercial port, but this place has an outstanding view of the city on warm summer nights, and boasts an extensive entertainment complex).
Working with Cailey and her team was a great experience. Cailey helped us with the previous sale and purchase of our home and was there again for us when we decided to sell our home and move to Vancouver. Given the circumstances of our move, along with two small children in tow, Cailey and her team made sure the whole process was as seamless as possible. Her knowledge and expertise as well as her connections ensured a quick sale of our home for well over the asking price. Cailey, along with every member of her team, was caring and helpful every step of the way while also maintaining a high degree of professionalism. I can’t imagine working with any other realtor. If life takes us back to Toronto one day Cailey will be the first person we call!

A weekly GTA Pass (Greater Toronto Area Pass) is available for $59. It is valid on the TTC and the transit systems in Mississauga , Brampton, York Region, but not Durham Region or Halton Region. This pass is also transferable, although only one rider may use it at a time. If you are travelling through the fare-zone boundary in York Region with a GTA pass, you will have to pay an additional $6.
Commonly known as the “Dark Hedges”, Bregagh Road is lined with gnarled and majestic beech trees that form a distinctive canopy. Planted in the late eighteenth century by a notable Irish family called the Stuarts, the trees welcomed visitors to their grand and luxurious estate. Legend has it that a member of the original Stuart family, now referred to as “The Grey Lady”, still haunts the Dark Hedges at night. Ethereal and cinematic, Bregagh Road is frequently featured on HBO’s Game of Thrones.
All but two (Routes 99 and 676) of the TTC's bus and streetcar routes have a subway station somewhere on the loop, and while many routes will take you into the station and beyond the ticket barrier, some of them (especially downtown) will take you only to the outside of the station. In this case, you can enter the station by presenting a valid transfer. If you don't have one, you need to pay another cash fare.

I worked with David to find a new home in the quick moving, stressful month of May. I was eager to look at everything and find something of good value as quickly as possible. David was always ready to meet my schedule for viewings and bids. He came prepared to each visit and was able to offer wise insight about the pros and cons of the many homes we viewed. Within a hectic but short time period, we found the right house. David had understood the many distinct requirements I had and worked to find a home that matched those needs. I would recommend David to anyone looking to find a new home.
According to CIBC Deputy Chief Economist, Benjamin Tal, Toronto and Vancouver housing prices are expected to increase again in the long run. Although action has been taken to cool the markets, demand still remains strong. 8775 The level of activity is likely to stabilize and perhaps soften in the coming quarters as markets adjust to recent and upcoming regulatory changes, 8776 he wrote. 8775 But when the fog clears, it will become evident that the long-term trajectory of the market will show even tighter conditions. 8776
The overall violent crime rate in Canada, and particularly in Toronto, is much lower than that found in major cities in the United States and below the average of other large Canadian cities to the west. Over the last decade, there have been an average of fewer than 75 homicides per year in the city, a rate of fewer than three per 655,555. Organized gang violence occurs but has been very sporadic since a noticeable rise mid-last decade. Petty crime is generally not a large-scale problem in Toronto, but as always, keep vigilant with your possessions and avoid keeping valuables in outer pockets. Car and bike theft are comparable to other large North American cities and many stolen automobiles wind up being exported overseas.

Just a short note to say how delighted Brian and I were to work with you and your team while selling our house and buying a condo. You helped turn a pretty stressful time in our lives into an easy and, indeed, pleasant experience. We appreciated your calm and intelligent council as well as all the help you provided in directing us to trades and services needed in the run-up to listing the house as well as the big move. All your recommended people were spot on. In addition, we found working with you and your team was a pleasure….a really accessible, friendly, and professional group. So, we are happy to say that we will be passing your name on to others as a 65 out of 65 Real Estate Service provider. Thank you, it is a pleasure to know you.
First and foremost, I firmly believe that Cailey and the Heaps Estrin team care about our family and want the best home to fit our lifestyle. Cailey and Megan have shown us dozens of houses over the past few years and I’ve never felt any pressure or sense of urgency. When we finally found the perfect new home, Cailey negotiated the sale professionally and communicated with us promptly every step of the way. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Heaps Estrin team to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
