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.

The Harbourfront is located on Queens Quay. Most of Queens Quay is under construction for new streetcar tracks/Pan Am game prep. You simply cannot bring your car here without major frustration. Take the Bay St bus from Union Station south to the ferry docks. You can stroll across Queens Quay and take in the sights. At the end of the... More

While in Toronto we made our way to harbourfront center for the hot and spicy food fest. There is so much to do there. We enjoyed live music from around the world as well as food and a large selection of hot sauces for sale. Yogapalooza was also on while in the area.

The waterfront area is beautiful with plenty to see. There were lots of boats going by, including ferries going to the islands. Planes were taking off from the airport. Our toddler could have spend a long time looking at everything. Unfortunately there was a lot of construction on the streets around the waterfront so not very easy to get to.

Spent my last day in Toronto at Harbour Centre and there was a music festival. Beautiful. Highly recommended. Spend the day by the water.

There was so much to do in such a short time -- although there was major construction going on -- it was still so much fun with plenty to do. I have already made my hotel reservation for next year 2015!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My last trip to Toronto we had a much better experience because the area was not under construction. Once they're done it will be even better and I would fully recommend it for a visit. But until then, I would stay away. The streets, traffic and parking were a nightmare!

Nice view of water, clean, multiple eating options. Close to downtown and easily accessible by ttc. Walking distance from other toronto sites. Worth to see. Does not take long to see entire area.
