Toronto is sprawling, there’s no doubt about it. However, the city's excellent public transportation system makes it a cinch to get outside the city center to explore the Toronto that locals know and cherish. And you should do just that: hit a trendy strip like Ossington to experience Toronto’s burgeoning hipster culture; take in the vibe of a busy sidewalk café in Leslieville, teeming with young families; stroll the boardwalk and enjoy the lake breezes in The Beach; or satisfy a hungry belly with Greek food along the Danforth or a spicy curry in Little India.
