  • It may not be the easiest of places to get to by car, but if you spend a few hours here with family or friends, it is worth the drive, traffic, long lineups, etc. My best advice would be to pack some food, drinks and a blanket for a nice picnic by the water. Or go anyway, it's like an adventure in the city. Always something new and interesting to see and experience! I love TO :)
  • Been coming here ever since we've lived in Toronto; 4 years. It's always special and we've never had one complaint. They just renovated and the atmosphere is even lovelier than before! Food and service is fantastic.
  • Great place to spend a weekend. Great atmosphere and beautiful views. There are always a variety of food options and great little popup vendors.
  • One of the few legitimate draws to Toronto's waterfront. Whether you're 'dancing on ice' to the sound of DJ'd music, or drinking in a beautiful sunset during an evening stroll in the summer, Harbourfront provides a unique gateway to our waterfront.
  • Great place to visit for fresh air, lakeshore view and boat trips! There are so many fun activities going on over the summer.
