Where is it?
Our home is a fifteen minute walk to sandy beaches on Lake Ontario. There, extensive parkland with a boadwalk and bycycle paths connect us to other park areas in the heart of Toronto. We are on a bus line which will take you to a subway in minutes that will connect you with all of Toronto. Commuter train stops up the street connecting you with national trains. Our east side neighbourhood feels like a small town within a larger city. We are within walking distance to public playgrounds, parks, indoor swimming pools, tennis and volleyball courts, community centre, libraries and nature trails. Toronto is the largest city in Canada. It is the cultural, financial, educational and business center of Canada and yet retains its "many small towns within a city" feeling. Museums, symphony, operas, theatre, galleries. It has been listed as the most multicultural city in the world. Large distinct cultural neighbourhoods abound making eating out an adventure.
It is an hour and a half drive or bus ride to Niagara, our major fruit growing and wine area. It is glorious in the spring. Niagara-on-the Lake is quaint and Niagara Falls spectacular. Three of the four Great Lakes are withing a 3 hour drive. Surrounding rural country side is beautiful; camping is excellent. Canoe in Algonquin Park for a few days, hike the Bruce Trail, see Shakespeare's plays at Stratford. Toronto is about a 4 hour drive or train to Ottawa, Canada's capital and about 6 hours to Montreal and Quebec.
