If you ever thought that you need to drive far out of the city to go kayaking or to have an adventure in general think again. Paddle Toronto operates right out of Harbourfront Centre and they have plenty of Kayaks for rent. A quick 20min paddle to Toronto island and you will feel like you are in cottage country, especially if you go in spring or fall when all the tourists have thinned out. The noise of the city disappears although it looms right above you every time you turn your head north. So if you are ever stuck and not sure what to do, go for a evening paddle and watch the sunset from the lake, you won't regret it.
