Toronto Urban Strolls

This is the first in a series of guest bloggers who provide us with a unique approach to the many sights and sounds of Toronto. This week we are thrill to have Nathalie Prezeau, author of Toronto Urban Strolls as our guest blogger this week

I visited the Boatel and met with Diane and Ted last year. What a cool couple, and what a great Toronto accommodation concept!

Nathalie Music Garden 2Their new location at 539 Queens Quay West is  a stone’s throw away from the Toronto Music Garden will make it an even better experience, I am sure.

Last week, bike riders and walkers leisurely strolled the waterfront under the sun. Everything was picture perfect in this part of town (a mere 1-km walk from popular Harbourfront Centre). Hard to believe this is downtown Canada’s biggest city.

I took some photos of the Music Garden, all whimsical with its colourful spring landscaping. It is worth exploring all its nooks and crannies. You won’t find two angles alike in this garden. Plus you’ll get an interesting view of the CN Tower.

I strongly recommend you take the time to enjoy one of the free concerts presented in this one-of-a-kind decor most Thursdays at 7 p.m. and Sundays at 4 p.m. from June to September. Quite an urban treat and a great way to mingle with the locals.

I was thrilled to see a Bixi stand right by the marina. Bixi is a very convenient city bike rental system for those who want to hop from one spot to the next (your Boatel host will be able to tell you more about it).

Diane carries copies of my book at the Boatel so be sure to ask for a copy. Make sure you make reservations at the Boatel before they book up for the season.
