This week on #TOurist: the Harbourfront and Toronto Island!
Sometimes, I feel like a tourist in my own city. You would think that living, working and studying in Toronto means that I’m constantly checking out new restaurants or unique locations, but it’s not always easy to take some time away from my everyday routine to explore the city I live in! In this series, I’m going on new adventures and showcasing what the city of Toronto has to offer. Say hello to your local #TOurist!
As a Torontonian and Ram, you’ll have access to the city’s beautiful Lake Ontario waterfront. While you’re at Harbourfront (just a short subway ride away from Ryerson), you can go ice skating, enjoy art installations, spend time on the historic boats and check out the sea-fare restaurants.
If you want to learn more about the Harbourfront, check out Karin’s video here!
The best part about Harbourfront? You can take a ferry (just $5 for students) to Toronto Island! Some Torontonians call the island home, while others just visit to enjoy Centreville amusement park, the beach, botanical gardens, spacious green areas, and the peace and quiet laying just beyond the city.
So what are you waiting for? Hop on that ferry before it takes off!
