Just spent a great afternoon at the beach yesterday. They have put in some new planks which is good. The beach was not very busy, but enough people there so as not to feel isolated. Also, and this was good timing on my part there...More

The eastern beach in Toronto has a great long board for walking, running, or biking. Great for a family or couples walk; combine with a stroll back along Queen St. East.

Creative and inspiration! Worthy to take about two hours to have a leisure walk on the boardwalk. Good for whole family activity. Kids can bring their bikes and roller coasters too.
