Toronto's Winter Waterfront Photos Show How Magical The City Is

Winter can bring with it a lot of negatives, and not just in terms of temperature. From delayed commutes to icy storms, it's easy to forget the beauty of the season. The city is completely transformed into a glistening snowy wonderland during these months, and it's too pretty not to get outside and enjoy. Take a trip to Toronto's winter waterfront to experience some stunning frosty views.

During the summer months, the waterfront is the perfect place to suntan, play volleyball, and run barefoot through the sand.

The wintertime brings with it a whole new world to explore. You can enjoy glassy ice rinks and incredible snowy scenery all along the shoreline.

The Harbourfront ice rink lets you glide along while enjoying a view of frozen Lake Ontario. There are DJ skate parties every Saturday night with glowing lights and a variety of tunes.

Winter Stations brings a unique feature to the waterfront with tons of giant art installations. Wander along the frozen beach and take in the exhibits set upon a snowy white backdrop.

Ontario Place is also hosting a winter exhibit, and you can explore interactive light installations near the snowy shoreline.

Grab a hat and mittens and head out to Toronto's snow-covered waterfront this season.
