The Beach has the greatest variety of architectural house styles of any Toronto neighbourhood. The charm of these homes is accentuated by the tree-lined streets that wind their way down to the lake. Some refers to it as The Beach, others as the Beaches. Politically correct use The Beach, otherwise both are acceptable.
Many of the original frame Beach cottages built in the latter half of the 1800's and the early 1900's, have been modernized and are still standing today. However, the majority of The Beach homes were built during the 1920's and 1930's.
The former Greenwood racetrack site located at the foot of Woodbine Avenue is now the site of a large new home development known as The Beach. This large collection of heritage inspired custom built homes will include detached and semi-detached houses, and townhomes. Also included in this mix will be a handful of low-rise condominium apartment buildings.

The Beach looks and feels more like a lakeside resort town, than a big city neighbourhood. In the summertime, thousands of Torontonians and tourists flock to The Beach to walk on The Boardwalk, exercise along the Martin Goodman Trail, relax by the water, or shop and dine at the colourful stores and restaurants along Queen Street.
Queen Street is the most commercial of The Beach shopping area. Many of these stores and restaurants have a beach motif that caters to the tourist trade.
The shops on Kingston Road also have a beach flavour, however they attract a more local clientele than the stores on Queen Street.
