#7 – Rent a car bike

Ok, so I think the actual name for these things is quadricycle, so I’m not sure why I thought they were called car bikes.  No matter what you call them, they are so fun.  We had an awesome time chugging all over the island, and Henry was pretty pleased with his little seat up front.

#43 – Franklin’s Children’s Garden on Centre Island

I love children’s gardens and this one did not disappoint.


Details: Information about the garden and programs can be found here.  After perusing this, I realized we missed a couple things.  Goals for next time!

#41 – Ferry ride

A couple weekends ago we trekked out to the Toronto Islands.  It doesn’t happen often that we get a day just the three of us, and it was pretty perfect AND we knocked a few things off our list.  First up, ferry ride!  Henry’s first (he was a fan).


Details: Schedules and fares for the Toronto ferries can be found here.  New this year is the ability to buy your ferry tickets online.

#5 – Ride bikes on Centre Island

I knew this was going to be a great afternoon when I asked the gent at the bike rental shop for a purple bike and when he brought it out he said “This one even has a pink bell”.

We had a great time exploring Centre and Ward’s Island.  The bikes weren’t quite as nice as the ones we rented from Zoom in Niagara-on-the-Lake, but they did the job and we had a lot of fun.


Details: Toronto Island Bicycle Rental is open from May 1 – September 30.  Details about location and costs can be found here.
