A good lake for sailing. A lovely traditional boardwalk in the Beach neighbourhood, which makes a visit to the lake worth anyone's time. A questionable place to allow your kids to swim in---immigrants and tourists please take note. The amount of sewage plus industrial pollution from New York state (and also local) is sometimes visible to those flying above as... More

Everyone who lives in the GTA has probably been to, or at least passed by Lake Ontario. It's gorgeous on a sunny day but the pollution really does do some damage on the overall look of this otherwise magnificent lake.

It is the cheapest a way to visit the Island. There are different ports in this Island so I would recommend to go trough one, walk/bike around the island and return from other port. In each port you will find ferry schedules.

Lake Ontario is beautiful at all times but especially in the nice weather. I cycled along the shore in Burlington which has afabulous cycle path. This was shared by joggers, walkers and roller blade users. Everyone was so pleasant and friendly enjoying the same outdoor interest. there is a lovely restaurant along the way and a coffee shop which sells... More

Set yourself up for probably the best view of the city ...... You need to get on the water for it, my only piece of advice.... Pay a little more for the nicer cruises that are available and steer clear of the cheap, especially the outdated city sightseeing brand, you will be surprised on how those boats are still afloat
