Queens Quay Terminal, the area’s shopping mall, has a quite a few stores, restaurants and a museum depicting art and sculpture from the First Nations. In the summer there is a different ethnic festival every week which offer great food, clothing, trinkets, souvenirs, music and dance to reflect that specific culture. The festivals are free and attract a lot of visitors.
The Power Plant offers wonderful displays of visual arts. In the summer months there are a great many boat tours. In the winter, the reflecting pond is converted into a skating rink, providing excellent recreation and a picturesque view of Lake Ontario.
