You’re guaranteed a great view when you visit any of Toronto's picturesque lakeside patios. Enjoy views of the water, tall ships, sunset and the Toronto city skyline. The lake is lovely to view from the shore, but it’s even lovelier to view atop the deck of one of the city’s many cruise ships. A fixture on Lake Ontario throughout most of the year (some all-year round), these ships glide across the water while guests enjoy gourmet meals and amazing views. Or you can relax on one of TO's beaches which range in size from the humble Sugar Beach to the sprawling (and busy) Woodbine Beach. Just make sure you check the water quality before jumping in.
