Why locals love it

There is a great initiative in Toronto to use street art for decoration and beautification of the city. Rush Lane and Graffiti Alley, which run into each other, showcase the largest amount of continuous Graffiti in the city. In this corridor graffiti is not only accepted, but encouraged. Torontonians love to see what our local artists have put up.

Why you should visit it

Travellers should check this place out to see some of our most talented local street artists' work. Winding through the maze-like alleys between Queen St and Richmond are a feast for the eyes. This is a great place for an evening stroll and not to mention awesome for snapping some sweet selfies.

Special tip

There is a cocktail bar in the area called rush lane which makes for a nice pre or post tour libation.

"Graffiti" undersells these outdoor artworks. Worth a stroll around.

It's right in the middle of downtown and is never crowded with people. Every inch of space is covered in graffiti - You can even find some Lovebot there :)
