Scenic trails and the independence of two wheels await.
Since the 1970s Cabbagetown has experienced a cultural and economic explosion, becoming one of the city’s most gentrified quarters. Replete with Victorian architecture, and even a city-farm, visitors can take a walking tour of the neighbourhood and also stop in at their pick of cafés, pubs and restaurants that range from South Asian to Japanese to Italian.
