If you're like me, you love suburbia, occasionally are attracted to big city lights for a getaway, but need a break from time to time. (Each time I go to a major metropolitan, I find myself visiting some of the quieter places. Haha!) This could be just what you need as a welcome respite for a few hours. We headed... More

I love visiting the island this time of the year with my grandkids. They love the fairy ride to get there and the amusement park keeps them so happy. There are great nature walks, a great places to have a picnic lunch.

This is the best place in Toronto to spend on a warm beautiful day. Pack a picnic or enjoy some food at the restaurant. You can rent bikes, kayaks, or play beach volleyball. The gardens are nice photo opts!! You can take ferry $7 round trip or water taxi $10 back by ferry free

If you have little one the Centreville amusement park is perfect for them. But Centre Island if for everyone of all ages. It is lots of fun to rent a bike and explore also to just sit on the grass and enjoy a bbq.

Centre Island is, in one word, BEAUTIFUL. Go here during the summer and you can enjoy the beach, biking, having a picnic, and of course the friendly locals. This place is just stunning. Good place for relaxation and unwinding as well although you must be ready for the long lines at the ferry station. Technically it is free, the ferry... More

The island has everything - kids playground, amusement park, beaches, cycling, boating, funnel cake and so much more. The ferry ride from downtown Toronto is a very nice one. Any visit to Toronto in the summer should include a trip to the island. Good day spend for people of every age.

We walked the boardwalk (about 2 km), rented a quadricycle (fun!), sat on the beach and also had a picnic in a park. The amusement park is for little kids, our kids are 10 and 12 and weren't interested. If... More
