The Toronto Harbor, which is also commonly called Toronto Bay, lays nestled behind the Toronto Islands, which block the body of water from Lake Ontario's larger waves. Both pleasure boats and commercial boats ply the inner and outer harbors of the bay. On sunny days, the harbor fills with sailboats and party cruises, attracting merry visitors who climb aboard with the purchasing of a ticket. Toronto Harbor's waterfront consists mostly of quays and piers, while its waters are home to a variety of fish, including pike and largemouth bass. From a vantage on the harbor, the dramatic skyline of the city of Toronto gently unfurls like a painted panorama.
Located in the Beaches area, the Ashbridge's Bay Park is one of the most beautiful outdoor spaces within the city limits. Known for its beaches and boardwalk, this is the place summertime was made for. Walk along the waterfront and enjoy the scenic view. You can sunbathe on the beach or take a dip in the lake. You'll also find in-line skaters, joggers and cyclists along the winding Martin Goodman Trail. Facilities include a fully accessible washroom, drinking fountain, fire-pits and picnic areas. There is a public boat launch and plenty of parking available.
Woodbine Beach is located in east Toronto, and it is probably one of the best beaches in the city. Due to the beach's distance from Downtown Toronto, Woodbine Beach is less crowded than other Toronto water attractions. You can jog along the waterside, play a game of beach volleyball, fly a kite, simply relax in the sun, and of course, go swimming.
The Wild Water Kingdom is a seasonal water park that's fun for the whole family! Go for a swim and enjoy the exciting rides, including The Kraken which is a thrilling water slide. Relax in the whirlpools and body surf in the Wave Pool. Your kids will enjoy themselves in the Wet'n'Wild Jr area. Don't forget you can rent a cabana and just relax. If you get hungry just stop by one of the onsite restaurants or have a small get-together in the large picnic area.
Located to the north of Toronto, the city of Vaughan reverberates with the joyous shrieks and screams that emanate from the fun-filled corners of Canada's Wonderland. This colossal theme park features over 200 attractions and 68 heart-thumping rides, including 15 roller coasters. While the park is home to a melange of thrilling rides, some elicit more roars of excitement than others. The WindSeeker, a swing ride standing at a height of 91.7 meters (301 feet), is one such ride that sets riders' hearts apace and heads spinning, moving at a speed of 50 kilometers (31 miles) per hour. Another unique attraction is the Wonder Mountain's Guardian, an interactive 4D ride that takes visitors on a seemingly daunting trip through the dark. However, all rides pale in comparison to the mighty Leviathan, deemed as Canada's fastest and tallest roller coaster. It plunges riders from a height of 93 meters (306 feet) at an 80-degree angle, hurtling across what seem like endless loops of ascent and descent.
