Take a short 10 minute ride on the Toronto Island Ferry and find yourself in a place of beautiful contrasts. Behind you – beautiful parkland, in front of you the bustling sky-scape of Ontario’s biggest city. *Bonus tip – In winter, the ice covered lake makes photos particularly memorable.
2. Toronto Waterfront Trail

The waterfront trail runs along the shoreline of Toronto, and extends through Toronto, Mississauga, Oakville, Burlington and Hamilton. Grab your bike and camera and enjoy the lakefront, and beautiful perspectives of the skyline in the distance.
The accommodations are beautiful, and the location perfect for an urban escape, but an added bonus of staying at Toronto’s Thompson Hotel is access to one of the most stunning views of the city – the perfect place to photograph a sunrise or sunset.
4. The Harbourfront Centre
