Toronto’s Island Escape
Even if you have been to Toronto a few times, I think you will be impressed what the harbour front has to offer. From beaches, events to many seafood restaurants, I found Toronto’s waterfront a mini escape from the city grind.
Toronto isn’t a large city, so travelling in, out and around is pretty straight forward. If flying to Pearson International Airport, I recommend taking the UP Express train into Union. This is the fastest way to connect to the main subway stations and towards the waterfront. Residents make the daily boat commute for work and also food supplies, as there is no main shops on the Toronto Islands.
Not seeing the CN Tower when visiting Toronto is like going to Egypt and not seeing the pyramids. The views are spectacular. I would recommend the 360-degree restaurant, book early. Guaranteed uninterrupted panoramic views.
Toronto is home to one of the longest urban lakefront in the world. Depending on the time of year you visit, the waterfront has many boat trips, parks and beaches to explore.
