Imagine spending the day biking the Martin Goodman Waterfront Trail, catching a live classical music performance in the Music Garden or lounging in a comfy Muskoka chair enjoying your favourite read-of-the-moment with soft sand between your toes at Sugar Beach. And then, after feeling the sun kissing your face, take a tour through the Power Plant gallery!
It's the ideal staycation in Toronto!
And it's all connected by one fantastic organization; yes, the epicentre of the Toronto waterfront entertainment universe is Harbourfront Centre, located on Queens Quay West between York and Rees Streets!
This 10-acre site on Toronto's waterfront hosts more than 3,500 events each year, attracting millions of visitors! It features restaurants, galleries, community spaces, gardens, art studios, an outdoor skating rink and much more! Additionally, it’s a great place to check out if you’re thinking of starting a hobby or looking to learn something new; as a variety of classes are offered year round - everything from pottery and glass blowing to silkscreening to sailing.

The one event that has everyone talking right now, that's coming this summer...
.... The BRAVE: Secret Lives, Second Chances!! Here's an excerpt from BlogTO: "Letters from exes and sad old selfies will find a home at the Harbourfront Centre this summer, thanks to an exhibit dedicated to breakups and broken hearts. The BRAVE: Secret Lives, Second Chances arts festival takes place from July 11 to July 21 for its second year. As part of the festival, the world-famous Museum of Broken Relationships is coming tom Toronto for the first time ever."
The best bit about Harbourfront Centre is that it's not a tourist trap, with sky-high prices and one-time deals. No - it's actually more geared toward city residents, offering Torontonians the opportunity to take classes, acquire seasons tickets to dance performances, rent boats throughout the summer, and the like! Have you taken advantage of Harbourfront Centre lately? Why not make a pact with yourself to get out enjoy Lake Ontario this summer - and the stellar City On The Shore!
