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 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.

walking along the boardwalk is definitely relaxing, its away from the hustle of downtown and the breeze is great on a warm day. you won't find much in the way of food but its a nice place to visit. there are little art places, paws way where sometimes there are shows featuring pets doing tricks, and some outdoor concerts. i'd...

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