Canoe or Kayak to the Toronto Islands

Get paddling this summer! If you’re downtown, check out Harbourfront Canoe & Kayak Centre to get you to Toronto Island, or take a ferry and pick up a kayak or canoe while you’re there. For west-enders, Toronto Adventures have rentals to get you coasting down the Humber River.

Cycle along the Martin Goodman Trail

Head to Sunnyside to take in some views of the lakefront. The Martin Goodman Trail, which runs along Lake Ontario, is perfect for cyclists. Plus, Sunnyside has got tons of cycling facilities sprinkled throughout its scenic streets.

Go Swimming

If you didn’t know, Lake Ontario is literally right downtown, so there are so many beaches and so much water for you to go for a swim! Whether you’re headed to the beach or to an indoor pool, check out our list of the best swimming spots around the city here.


Try the Edge Walk at the CN Tower

Go Sailing

Head out on the water and go sailing! What better way to get out of the house and get a breath of fresh air than by going for a sail? Check out Gone Sailing Adventures or the Harbourfront Centre for boat rentals and other sailing adventures.

Try Go-Karting at the 401 Mini Indy
