I stayed here with my family while visiting. Close to the lovely lake shore and also next to Queens street full of shops, but more importantly lots of restaurant choice. It was a lovely quiet break, about 10-15 mins drive from downtown Toronto. There are many houses to rent here is one needs to. The beach itself, is a boardwalk... More

This is a place for a stroll and to people watch. There is not much else here. Food consists of ice cream stands. Lots of dogs on leah. Lots of families. Not worth going out of the way.

The beaches is easy to get to by public transport. The broad walk is long and sturdy, there are alcoves and shade along the way, snack bars and bathrooms and changing ares. Lots of... More

If the weather is cooperating, take a quick trip to the Beaches. In 15 minutes you can be out of downtown and in this quaint area. Find a nice patio to have some lunch and then take a walk on the beach.

I used to live in the the Beaches, and I always love going back. There's something for eveyone here. The beach itself is beautiful, with a boardwalk that goes for miles around into a parkland on the spit of land that juts into Lake Ontario, and there are plenty of interesting restaurants and shops. A visit to the Beaches feels... More
