Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a district heavily influenced by immigration. With a number of low-rent shopping and dining options making it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one of Toronto's largest shopping malls, the otherwise green suburban neighborhood is a good place to go for bargains and discounts. It also draws in photographers. The spires, archways, and cavernous rooms of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Palace are filled with breathtaking art, architecture, and detailed reliefs – it’s like entering a different world, The ruins of columns and installation art at the Guild Inn makes a free-for-all exploration site, while the big-name draw for young photographers is the menagerie at the Toronto Zoo. While many visitors shirk Scarborough as too suburban, its houses are some of Toronto's most mystical and haunting architectural beauties. And for adventure lovers, it has river-rafting and some unique hiking trails.
Pleasantly surprised when we visited this park after not being there for decades. Pretty pathways and marina. A few different beaches as well. Definitely worth spending a few hours in the sunshine there.
In the 1950s and 60s, most of Toronto's Victorian heritage buildings were torn down and replaced with the modernist structures you see today or worse. Fortunately, the good folks who originally owned the Inn here sought to preserve some pieces and set up what is one of the few neo-classical sculpture gardens in the world. Wonderful place for a picnic...
We went canoeing during the 3rd weekend of Oct. and saw LOTS of birds - great blue heron, white swan, at least 50 ducks and more!
We drove to Rouge Beach on Lawrence, east of Port Union. There are a few places to dip in there and we saw several others who had kayaks, stand-up paddle boards and canoes, like...
This restaurant provides an amazing, spectacular experience. It's crowded - be sure to have reservations.
I've never seen such enormous crabs and lobsters, and before they are cooked, they are brought to the table and you can have your picture taken while holding them.
The various dinners come in various courses. Our first course was corn soup followed by an...
Food and service is great. Staff very friendly and accommodating. On the downside there was no parking left and all I three of my friends had to park up by the hotels. Another issue is no reservations unless a large group. It is always busy even early. Last visit had a wait time of 1 hour. Thank God for the...
"Great place for family dinner. Good value for money. Home cooking."

This was my first visit. We went as a family over the holidays and it was a nice night out. The service was friendly and fast. I had the lasagna which tasted like home cooking; tasty meat sauce with just the right amount of cheese. Wide selection of wines and beers. Plenty of parking.
Our family decided to go to Smith Brother for the first family dinner in 2018.
The reason is simple; my dad loves their roast prime rib, and their steaks were always up to standard.
With no surprise, the meal was great, and the quality of food is up to standard.
And yes, we will come back again
Stayed at the Best Western Plus Executive Inn over Christmas while in Toronto visiting family. There was construction taking place but that did not deter the great stay. Close to downtown and right on the 401. The room was clean and spacious. I would definitely stay again.
I really enjoyed my stay here. The room was clean (except for a little mold in the shower) Loved the pool area makes you feel like you're outdoors. Staff was nice, Would definitely recommend staying here. However $12/day in parking is over the top!
Great hotel to stay, very friendly, free breakfast and closed by Scarborough center mall and also the train station ( by taking busses at the last stop). I only stay there for three day for visit my friends.
We had been traveling back from the north, but had not found a room, with a on line search we chose this one. It appears that the room had been recently updates, everything was clean and in repair. It is a very basic type room, good beds and new bathroom. It had a small refrigerator, which is always nice to...
We ordered two rooms. The front desk called us upfront to confirm the check-in time. The location is close to the street but pretty quite. The rooms looks old but the most importance is clean and no "special" smell. That's what I expected to live in a motel. There is enough free parking lots but free wifi is not fast....
