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.

It's really hit or miss depending on the shows and displays they have going on when you are there. They usually have different cultural shows, but sometimes they will have days where there is less going on. Of course, the best part is that it's always free (except if you want to buy food, that will cost you money). Oh,... More

There are eateries, shops and seating areas for strollers to just sit and enjoy the beauty looking out at Toronto Island. The ferry is accessible and you can sit and watch concerts.

Harbour front is one of my favourite spot specially in summer season - the beauty of Ontario lake and the colourful city is showing the beauty of city. Any type of people can enjoy at this location. Lots of things to offer for enjoyment.

You have to take your family ice skating here. Incredible and worth the trip. First of all it is free unless you need rentals. It is beautiful...outdoor rink with a view of the lake and the island airport departures and landings. We went Saturday morning and plan on making it a weekly event. Also...coca cola had placed a coke machine... More

I used to live in the tall square condos directly across the street from here. Absolutely my favorite spot in Toronto by far. Tons of things to do and see around here, you will definitely enjoy it, Summer OR Winter! During winter there is a public outdoor skating rink directly facing the beautiful 'frozen' Lake Ontario. The rink has a... More

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.
