I walked to cabbage town from Clarion Hotel at Selbys. It's a quite a walk. This neighborhood in downtown Toronto holds the largest continuous Victorian houses in North America. History said that the Irish immigrants grew cabbages on their lawns because of poverty and once to be the poorest neighborhood in Toronto. The best cafes are here and some restaurants and bars too. This is a good place to visit if you want to see a different face of Toronto. It has a separate festival usually in Septemeber.

historic, intresting, unexpected.
cabbage town is a historic residential area of toronto, built between the 1840s and the 1890s. it is great fun to walk around the area, and look at all the old victorian brick houses. in spring, summer, and fall, there are free tours around cabage town. the guides are very good, and you will learn alot about the architecture, and history. cabage town also has alot of interesting records: it is the largest area of victorian buildings in the world (acording to our guide), it also has the smallest house in toronto, and the only private streets in toronto (you can't park there without permission). one of the colest houses is the 'witchs house". this house was built in queen an style (meaning, it is a mix of many different designs).
