Well - maybe I don't know what i'm missing but I'm more an urban junkie....You'll catch me at The Drake, shopping vintage clothing on Queen Street West or watching Theatre prods at Buddies before you'd find me roasting on a beach ocean or lake or as you call it - tropical cove.. See Toronto is perfect for me... an urban playground.. The one week cheap all inclusive cuban vacation once a years is all I need in terms of a beach life.. As a matter of fact - anytime I go to the Caribbean I usually sneak away to cities like Havana and Santo Domingo for urban adventures while my friends suffer from premature aging baking in the sun while getting S-Faced at a secluded resort with the rest of the gringo's... One or two days at the beach and I start to lose my mind from boredom..

Beach bum - not so much haha.

Sydney offers all Toronto has to offer when it comes to urban experience and on top of that you do not need to fly for 3 hours to get your tropical fix...pretty sweet...

Sydney is a great city and no doubt urban so in my mind no need to get into a Sydney vs Toronto situation... I'm not sure it offers all the urban experiences of T.O - T.O definately is a larger and more dense city... I think it would take someone intimately familiar with both to come to a meaningful conclusion as to how these cities stack up to one another in the urbanity department - otherwise its speculation.. Toronto offers a pretty potent punch and in addition is close to so many other great cities that Sydney isn't close to.. An hour flight from Sydney will get you where? An hour flight from Toronto and i'm in NYC, Montreal, Philly, Boston and almost Chicago and Q.C....not to mention a plethora of other smaller U.S cities of note - Cleveland, Cincinatti, Providence, Pittsburgh, Columbus, Indianapolis - Ottawa in Canda.. so the U.S Northeast and Midwest Plus Quebec over 100million people is right at my doorstep... Besides, I think it would be boring going to the same beaches anyway even if I lived in Sydney.. One thing is for sure, I'd appreciate Sydney for its urbanity a heck of alot more than for its weather or beaches but i'd be dissapointed as to how far I'd need to travel to find another urbanity fix...

It's getting very picky to suggest that Great Lakes beaches like Wasaga and Sandbanks offer a subpar beach and swimming experience. They are as good or better than most ocean beaches around the world (though not better than the world famous ones of course).

What's with these leopard-themed bikinis? Tacky.

Anyway, I don't see the fundamental difference in swimming in a big lake and the ocean.

A picture.

Shhh, don't tell anyone but the Great Lakes are almost like freshwater inland seas, and they can have waves and you can even surf on them... Shhh.
