Long Branch - New Toronto - Mimico

This string of streetcar suburbs along Lake Ontario are connected to Toronto's central core by the 501 Queen Streetcar, nominated by National Geographic magazine as one of the world's "top ten trolley rides." Once sleepy residential communities, these neighbourhoods (today often referred to simply as "Lakeshore") have seen tremendous growth in both townhouse and condominium development, especially along the lakeside just west of the Humber River, an area once known as the "Motel Strip." New Toronto, with its once-mighty industrial base that disappeared in the early 1990s, is ready for creative enterprises to find spaces in old industrial facilities. With that streetcar offering an easy ride downtown, many creative and talented people are finding affordable places to live in all of these neighbourhoods.
