If you enjoy skiing, yYou're able to ski taking a good look at CN Tower. It's amazing and good price.

I was at peace in a group of hundreds. Everyone just wanted to relax and the free street entertainment was great too. Although, there was a burger joint within the harbor. Oh my the service was awful. And we are a mixed couple, trust me we felt the heat. My husband was over it. But I personally don't care too... More

We attended the IFOA International Festival of Authors Opening Event for PEN Canada featuring Stephen & Owen King Oct 24, 2013 in the Fleck Dance Theatre. A beautiful and intimate venue that seats 400. The Harbourfront staff are helpful and the building and environment is beautiful. It was a wonderful event, comfortably handling the lineups prior to opening. You can... More

If you're walking through Toronto, you should probably check out this coastal little area. Plenty of little restaurants (a nice little pub as well) and perfect for people watching. Some effort was definitely placed around this area with plenty to do for an afternoon for the family. For us, it was a nice little excursion while exploring the city and... More

We visited on Thanksgiving Monday while free Harbourfront Kids programming was going on which appeared very popular. The entire complex was spotless and we enjoyed strolling the waterfront. There are obviously many attractions here over the course of the year but specific activities seem hit or miss based on day of the week and season. Parking was inexpensive and readily... More

The Harbourfront is beautiful! We enjoyed dinner overlooking the harbour, whilst watching sailboats drift by.... and airplanes land noisily. Actually, it was kind of cool watching the airplanes land over the water... not something one usually gets to observe.

I most enjoyed going to the Sobeys grocery store there for lunch. They make great gourmet sandwiches. We had the Turkey Gouda and the Beef Provolone. Only $6 and then took them to the Lake shore to eat. Can't beat that Lunch!

Despite living in Toronto, I had never been to most parts of the Harbourfront Centre, and the attractions thereabouts. This summer, what brought me there was the Holocaust puppet show, KAMP, which was put on by The Hotel Modern Theatre Company. The venue was the Enwave Theatre at the Harbourfront Centre. [The show was excellent, by the way]. The whole... More

Relaxing walk right at water's edge while enjoying airplanes landing at Billy Bishop Island Airport, private luxury boats moored along the water, sailboats gliding by. Lots of benches throughout, tour boats available, ferry boats to Centre Island, World Cafe with food galore and kiosks selling various crafts. Free evening entertainment and shopping. Quiet time during the week and the weekends... More

East Asian food (including tea tasting), music and dance, and arts and crafts made for a lovely afternoon. It was also a pleasure to watch the blend of sailboat and Toronto Island ferry traffic passing by.
