One of Toronto’s best places to visit is it’s downtown waterfront. Look one way and you can see Lake Ontario along with the Toronto Islands. Look behind you to find a perfect view of the downtown skyline. This family of four was on vacation in Toronto and wanted a location that was distinctly “Toronto”. We headed to the Harbourfront neighbourhood just south of downtown Toronto, which has a mix of greenery, colourful murals, a real sand beach (complete with yellow umbrellas) and of course some sailboats to entertain the kids.
