Toronto Islands
Title: Toronto Islands
Description: Toronto Islands were once attached to the mainland and formed a peninsula. In 1858, a ferocious storm created the chain of over a dozen islands which lie just offshore from the city. Most are connected by bridges, however some can only be reached by boat. Although people do live on the islands, eventually it is planned to become a natural reserve for wildlife only. There are frequent ferries to the islands from the city with the trip providing the best views of the skyline.
