Help me entertain my senior Deaf shutterbug in-laws in Toronto

My in-laws from Austin are visiting us in TO for the first time; we moved here a month ago. They are in their late 70s and Deaf. My mom-in-law is up for anything, but dad-in-law can't walk more than a couple of blocks (back problems), doesn't like museums, likes football but not baseball, is not a foodie or a drinker, and loves to take videos. He likes the water and man-made wonders.

We live in downtown and have a car. We interpret for them on tours, but music, etc. is out. We're planning on Niagara, CNTower, and a harbour cruise. (The Hippo tour thing seems expensive, so I'm not sure it's worth it.)
I've heard there's somewhere on the escarpment where you can get out an see the city/view, but I don't know where that it and whether it'll take a hike.
Suggestions for divey home cooking or burgers with local colour close to attractions or interesting old neighborhoods useful, too.
They'll be here Wednesday through Tuesday. Thanks!
