Neighbourhood Overview

The Beach Village is a charming, laid-back neighbourhood with a small-town vibe, located 20 minutes east of downtown in Toronto. The area boasts two main attractions: the beautiful sandy beach and the Queen Street strip.

Queen Street East boasts over 300 businesses, from cute cafes, cozy restaurants, boutique shopping, specialty stores, and more.

The Beach Village Business Improvement Area (BIA) operates on Queen Street, between Neville Park Blvd & Lockwood Rd. The BIA, a city agency, is managed by a volunteer board of directors consisting of local business and property owners, and staff, who work strategically to attract visitors, beautify the streetscape, and improve the business climate in the area.

"We feel lucky to live in the Beach, in part, because it's a short walk to pick up everything our family needs. It feels good to shop local and supporting our neighbourhood is very important to us."

Beach Village Business Mix

"I live and work in the Beach. My neighbours are my customers. We're like an extended family, always looking out for each other. We provide great service at a fair price, and customers reward us with their steady loyalty. I wouldn't live or work anywhere else."
"The Beach neighbourhood is like NO other. People are rooted in this community, knowing their neighbors and local shop keepers. Walking Queen Street means lots of smiles and hellos. The community is kind and loyal, and small business matters to them. Love our hood!"
