Be very careful buying tickets on boat tours from the kiosk out front of this centre esp if you have limited time for messups. At 11.30 they sold us tickets on a boat tour for 12.15. After sitting for 45 minutes waiting for our trip, we were told that the tour was overbooked and we could not get on. The... More

We ended up parking near the harbour for the Blue Jays game that night and walked over to the water to see the view. Looks like the waterfront in a lot of big cities with walking path, places to sit, and plenty of shops/restaurants. There is also a large old-time boat to see.

I love this place! Eat at the Greek! Order the chicken dinner and be surprised at what you get for a few dollars! Shop at Sobeys downstairs for grocery essentials in a superb smart clean store.

If you love the water and can sit and stare at it all day then this is the place to do it. We sat on the patio of a restaurant in the area and had a sangria with a few appetizers and was mesmerized by the action going on here. If you enjoy walking, cycling or rollerblading then this is... More

The newly re-opened Queens Quay is quite pretty and very pedestrian friendly. There are great dedicated bike and roller blade lanes but for the pedestrian, be careful where and how you cross them. Best to stick to the lights. Lots of activities - we saw a dance demonstration by young children. The usual kiosks of hand crafted goods for sale.... More

A leisurely stroll in the evening is all you would need, walk all you want and enjoy the breeze. If you are lucky you could catch some street shows as well. A must visit destination! If you are comfy with a camera, then you would be able to grab quite a few pics for yourself.

I visited the Harbourfront Centre during my recent trip to Toronto. A lovely area which is being renovated, it is pretty, has a lot of things to see and do including fantastic waterside & Toronto skyline views. Recommended!

If you don't go down to Harbourfront then don't tell your friends you've been to Toronto. This is a must stop in the summer to walk around. They've done a great job of building up the area and there's a good choice of places to stop for a drink.

Harbourfront is a great place to go with Family, Friends or as a couple. There are so many places to eat, shop and just enjoy watching people. In the Summer the band shell has concerts and their is a great flea market set up with local vendors. Sit on the benches watching the boats and the planes land at Island... More

It was interesting, though parking could be improved greatly! Lots of neat things to see, and great restaurants to choose from.
