Ever thought you could find such a beautiful view in Toronto? Well, this may not be in the downtown core, but a quick 25 minute drive up the DVP to the 401 will take you to the Scarborough Bluffs-one of the most beautiful places I have seen so close to home!
Whether you want to sit on the beach (I wouldn't say it is swim-able, but a nice view) go for a hike, or simply work on your photography skills for your Instagram account, this is a great place to go for an hour, a day or even 10 minutes!
Don't go too close to the edge though- you may want to walk as far as you can along the ledge, but I have heard in recent news someone getting stuck up here and needing the fire department to rescue them!
Along the bottom of the bluffs is a cute marina as well as little park and a fun walkway along the water with swan views! I wouldn't say you need an entire day here, but it is definitely worth the drive!
