Living in The Beaches
The stretch of lakeshore in The Beaches is bordered by a wooden boardwalk and sandy beach, frequented by roller bladers, volleyball players and tourists all summer long. Large parks are plentiful in this neighbourhood, both close to the waterfront or further north. A ravine that divides the area north-south provides a more rugged, but equally scenic opportunity for exploration, (e.g. the Scarborough bluffs).
For fantastic food, The Ceili Cottage is a favourite for its large beer menu, oysters, and huge patio. Murphy’s Law offers a rooftop patio and unrivalled views of the neighbourhood. Closer to the water, The Papillon on the Park is one of a few unique restaurants serving French cuisine just off the boardwalk.
