The Good Lovelies gave a performance not to be missed. Harbour front Theatre was a perfect venue. Excellent interaction with the audience during this Christmas concert.

When I go to Toronto, I park right across the street from the Harbourfront Center which is a nice attraction on the water. There is a nice gift shop, a viewing area to watch glass blowers, an ice-skating area overlooking the harbor, a few restaurants, theatre and art galleries. The main building where the glass blowing is has a the... More

Great place to just relax, have a beer and people/boat/plane watch. There are paddleboats on a little pond there (and I’m guessing skating in the winter), but no boats were on the pond. Just a man (on land) playing fetch with his dog in the water, which was fun to watch. The breeze off the lake is really nice. I... More

Harborfront is a fairly sprawling mall with a good selection of stores. The food court is also awesome and basically an upscale hawker center. The train to Sentosa also goes from here and is a good option. The stores are nice with a wide selection of mainstream and upscale stores. The roof is pretty neat also with great views of... More

Wandered down to the Harbourfront Center by chance and had a fabulous day strolling along enjoying a breeze, fabulous sailing ships and a bit of wildlife too! A nice relaxing day too get over the jet lag! Just wish we had more time to get over to the islands.

Visited in the morning around 10 a.m. Not many people at that time. Saw the ships, restaurants and tourist. Did not take the cruise because of lack of time. You can easily spend a whole afternoon here. Plenty of places to eat and people watch. I wonder how is it at night.

Toronto is a great example of how to do a waterfront right. Sorry Cleveland, Ohio - but you have failed miserably at this. One could easily make a day out of walking this entire area and exploring all the different shops, vendors, food and sites. Or, just take a break and sit by the waterfront of Lake Ontario. I’m amazed... More

I love going to Harbour front, there's usually something going on & if not I just love walking the "dock". It's especially magical at night. People are always friendly, just like being in our hometown.
