I was in Toronto for business. It is a great city, but also has a lot going on at all times. I decided that I was going to take a little day trip over to Toronto Islands for the day, to get some peace and quite away from the city. The Toronto Islands are some of my favorite places to escape to especially when in Toronto for long periods of time.
The ferry is pretty inexpensive and come frequently. I took the Queen Quay ferry from Harbourfront. There are eight islands plus a dozen or so smaller islets. There are no cars on the islands so it is perfect for long walks, or even along the beaches that are available on these islands. I had a picnic and a short walk along with a bike ride. It is a great place to clear your mind.
