The Prince Edward Viaduct (also known as the Bloor Viaduct), is a Toronto landmark and is the gateway to the East end. Toronto’s neighbourhood revitalization started in trendy Leslieville in the 1990s and spread to Riverside, Danforth Village and Riverdale. East end house come in all shapes and sizes. Many have been renovated with chic urban-cool designs. The signature neighbourhood in the East end is The Beach. This neighbourhood started out as a cottage community. Maybe it is this legacy that makes The Beach and all of the East end neighbourhoods such a fun place to live.

- East End recreational activities range from beach volleyball in The Beach neighbourhood to tobogganing in Riverdale Park
- The multicultural mosaic includes Little India and East Chinatown on Gerrard Street and Greektown on the Danforth.
