    It's all here--shopping, the arts, entertainment, restaurants, and people-watching. And it's right downtown, on the waterfront.

    Centre Island is one of Toronto's most popular parks. It stands between the city and Lake Ontario. The island has miles of hiking trails, along with a variety of activities.

    Strolling at the Lake Ontario border

    Nothing is more relaxing at Toronto than walking along the Lakeside.

    Especially Toronto's inner harbour at the Queens Quay is great to walk, jog or run.

    Make sure you rent a bike to stroll around the islands. You can get a single one or a double. Lots of fun.

    A colorful place to walk around. Watch the cruises leave, walk the gardens, take a ferry to the islands...

    Have fun visiting the clothing optional beach. You don't have to take your clothes off, but it's fun to watch.

    It's just a good place to hang out on a nice day. Go to the islands and have a picnic, or for the more adventerous, nude suntanning at Hanlan's Point *wink*

    Please take the 15 minute ferry over to Toronto Islands if only to look back at the magnificent Toronto skyline.

    Architecture!

    Every where I looked I got overwhelmed by the architecture and the way the buildings seem to react to one and other.
    This building stood along the highway.

    It's a big park in the Ontario Lake just front of the downtow. It's acccesible by the city ferries(2$ Ca the ticket). You can rent bicycle, roller blade, take a beer outside in a patio...

    Go roller blading near the waterfront

    This is a popular pastime around Toronto and most people are really good. Canadians are just good on skates. I, on the other hand, am absolutely useless.

    There is a nice park adjacent to the Westin Harbour Castle that was nice. Here is a picture of the harbor from the park.
