Reconnect with your inner child as you ride freely along the waterfront and away from the city and traffic. Beach visits and a ferry ride may inspire you to skip stones or order a triple scoop of ice cream. The city will emerge from the other side of the harbour as you slow down to take a look. Re-enter the city by way of the historic Distillery District, where you will step back in time.
Right away you will notice the envious faces of staff at Gears Bike Shop because they know you are about to experience an unforgettable bike ride. There’s a lot to see along the Waterfront Trail, so take it all in. Once on Toronto Island you will immediately feel the change of pace and the breezes off the lake. We know where the treeline breaks to offer spectacular views of the Toronto skyline and will be sure to stop so you can capture the moment. The island boardwalk gives you endless lake views, a glimpse of the large bird sanctuary on the Leslie Street Spit with its lighthouse and a pathway to North America’s largest car-free community. With charming homes and indigenous plants overflowing from gardens, the island is easily one of Toronto’s most unique places to visit. The ferry ride across the harbour will ease you back to the hustle and bustle, but not before we take a stroll down memory lane through the historic Distillery District. Noted as one of the 10 best things to do in Toronto (Trip Advisor), the Distillery District is an internationally acclaimed village of brick-lined streets and dozens of vibrantly restored Victorian industrial buildings. This tour offers a break from the bigger city and gives you a taste Toronto’s small-town charm.
