This was a busy place in the summer and rather scenic with bars and restaurants. We visited by bus, after walking around a bit, we caught the boat to one of the Toronto islands. The Westin hotel seems to dominate the Harbourfront area.

Harbourfront Centre is a good option for a weekend stroll if you are visiting downtown. Great views of the water. Numerous cruise options. Occasional street performers.

Great position by the water, plenty of boat trips on offer for a visit the islands, unfortunally we didn't have time. Some interesting places to eat and drink if the suns shining.

Its pretty because its on the water. But there is not much to do. No shopping, not too many places to eat. If you want to take a boat ride, then its worth going there. Also, go see the giant YELLOW RUBBER DUCKY.

Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner
Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the
outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is
celebrated by a number of monuments and museums,
giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier
destination for modern art, people here stroll through
the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy
the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe

There is no fee, but parking in the area is terrible. Expect to pay for parking.
