Torontonians are a resilient bunch.
Now that the sun is shining and the temperature is warm, after a harrowing Winter it's time to acknowledge Summer in the city makes Toronto awesome. Especially when you live on Harbourfront, where lovers of the outdoors call Queens Quay “Home!”
If you're a city slicker with a love for the great outdoors, consider making Harbourfront your address of choice. Whether biking the Martin Goodman Trail, lounging on Sugar Beach, relaxing in the Music Garden or taking the ferry over to the Toronto Islands, lakeside living is a breath of fresh air. Check out Harbourfront Centre on Queens Quay West, which for more than thirty years has served as an innovative, non-profit cultural organization which provides internationally renowned programming in the arts, culture, education and recreation, all within a collection of distinctive venues. The Centre also hosts an extensive program of arts and cultural events, including craft and artisan fairs, theatre and dance performances and musical concerts. A series of free concerts is staged at the outdoor concert stage every weekend throughout the summer and in winter there is the free open-air ice rink. You can even rent a boat! Can you imagine having all of this only a few minute walk away?

Just east is the Terminal Building at the foot of York Street, which features three floors of shops, galleries, restaurants and a Sobeys grocer, this dynamite condominium is just a short stroll to the Toronto Island ferry terminal, as well as the LCBO and the giant Loblaws, which includes a food and retail center at the foot of Jarvis Street where workshops, cooking classes and public meetings are held.
