Toronto makes the most of its waterfront, at which Harbourfront Centre is at its center. A 10-acre site that hosts more than 4,000 events each year, families may stumbled upon Classical or Caribbean concerts, a HarbourKIDS circus with juggling and magic acts, a children’s literary festival in May or a Hot & Spicy Food Festival in August. At the craft studio, York Quay, watch resident ceramicists and glass blowers at work. There are shows at the Theatre Centre and the Fleck Dance Theatre. Along the waterfront, you can rent kayaks, sailboats and powerboats, as well as bicycles and inline skates. On a stroll, pause at several waterfront parks, including HTO with its manmade sandy beach dotted with umbrellas and the Music Garden, whose flower arrangements suggest a work by Bach. In winter, ice skate at the Natrel rink.
