“The country, but downtown”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2012

Seems like a pain but in the summer, take the ferry and go over. It feels like the country, and there's beaches, a small amusement park, and bikes to rent. Fun fun fun.

“worth the trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

The Toronto Islands are a great respite from the city. Just a short ferry ride away from Queens Quay, you'll find a beautiful park. Skip the amusement park (if the kids let you) and head for the beach. (There's even a nude beach, if that's your kind of thing!) Get lost in the hedge maze. Look for the haunted light house. The best food on the island is at the Rectory Cafe, And after a great day away, you'll be treated to a stunning view of the city on the ferry ride back. Definitely worth a trip!

“TORONTO THE BEAUTIFUL”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

Very relaxed and tranquil setting .Toronto has an extremely nice waterfront area.I have often explored these areas by boat.Considering I spend most of my summer in cottage country i still explore Toronto Island Park even though I have been a resident of Toronto for 55 years.

“Long walks, no crowds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2012

In March, you can take long walks & hardly see anyone else. Beautiful trees -- see the tree tour that identifies them,-- and view of the city and lake, plus waterbirds, turtles, etc.

“peace and tranquility”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2012

It is understated and beautiful. It isn't hte sort of get away where you feel as though everything is manufactured to get more money out of you.
Perfect place for a picnic or walk. The zoo is great.
