One of the best parts of going to Centre Island is the ferry ride! Don’t forget to bring your kid’s bathing suit and frisbee! They have a wading pool, splash pads and frisbee golf for all to enjoy!
Trails – biking and hiking
Believe it or not, the GTA has a great place for hiking and riding your bike. Take your bike to the Don Valley and discover the trails that are hidden below the traffic of the Don Valley Parkway or head out to Vaughan and take in the beauty of the Kortright Centre Trail. Here is a complete list of Ontario Trails in the GTA. http://www.ontariotrails.on.ca/trail-regions/greater-toronto-area/
One of the great things about summer is outdoor living and the food festivals that come along with it. Try to check out one (or two) of these great food festivals:
Summerlicious the popular summer prix fixe menu event is back! Check out top restaurants with lunch menus starting from $15 and dinner menus starting from $25.
Ribfest is one of our favourite festivals of the summer. Ribs, Bloomin’ Onions, warm summer night and live music! What else can you ask for?
Night it Up! and the Waterfront Night Market are two Asian festivals that celebrate the night markets that you would normally see in Asian cities, such as Taipei. If you enjoy Asian food, these two festivals are a must! Night it Up takes place in Markham and the Waterfront Night Market takes place in Toronto.
New this year will be the Toronto Food Truck Festival which will be taking place in the Distillery District of Toronto. Details can be found here – http://www.torontolife.com/daily/daily-dish/restauranto/2011/06/08/new-summer-food-truck-event-fuels-hopes-for-a-toronto-street-food-revolution/ and by the hashtag FoodTruckEats on Twitter
A “cool” to pass the time is on or in the water. Check out this list of water-related activities:
Toronto Adventures is a company that provides guided tours via kayak and canoe – http://torontoadventures.ca/
Summer isn’t summer without a trip to Wild Water Kingdom. What better way to spend a hot summer day, then sliding down water slides or relaxing in a lazy river?
If Wild Water Kingdom is too far for an afternoon dip, place a visit to a pool in your local neighbourhood.

This list of summer activities could go on for days; the options are endless!

Don’t forget your sunscreen!
