Eat, Drink, Be Merry Or Take The Ferry
Living at Aquabella, you’re surrounded by the beauty of nature – sky, sun, lake and parks – as well as big city conveniences that add richness and variety to your life. Shopping, dining and entertainment are all within walking distance. The waterfront is your starting point for discovery, whether you have all day or just an hour.
How Do You Roll?
Stroll, bike or rollerblade along the lakefront from the promenade right outside Aquabella to the boardwalk at Harbourfront. Then venture further west to parks, the Billy Bishop Airport, Ontario Place and even Humber Bay. You can while away a day and watch water birds on the lake, grab some food, take in a concert, and go shopping at eclectic Queen’s Quay Terminal. On the way home, pick up groceries or flowers at Loblaw’s or St. Lawrence Market.
In the opposite direction, you can cycle for miles along bike paths that take you east to the Beaches, or the intriguing Leslie Spit, a huge sliver of land made from landfill and recycled construction materials and now a world-famous bird sanctuary.
North of the waterfront, your options expand infinitely. Head up to the Distillery District, a former distillery turned into a charming, picturesque centre of art galleries, bakeries, restaurants and cafes, and unique shops.
Although your Aquabella kitchen comes fully equipped with the latest appliances, you may be lured outside to discover the incredible restaurants and cafes nearby. There is an irresistible variety of amazing dining options close to home, in every direction. Quick breakfasts, long and lazy brunches, and fabulous dinners are all on offer at restaurants and cafes within the downtown core and along the waterfront.
The Distillery District, Queen Street East, King Street East, and the Financial District are at your doorstep, offering meals with a view, fast food with a twist and rapturous gourmet dinners.
Life Is A Beach
Living on the lake, you’re conveniently close to a string of sandy beaches where you can soak up the sun, hang out with friends, picnic, or even just relax under an umbrella with a good read.
Hop on the bus and get to Cherry Beach in minutes. Walk out your front door and stroll over to Sugar Beach with its whimsical pink umbrellas. Take a leisurely stroll to H20 park just east of Harbourfront Canoe and Kayak Centre. Or board the ferry and make it an outing to the beaches of Toronto Islands; you’ll feel like you’ve arrived in cottage country without the long commute in traffic.
