For the first time this year, it feels like summer has finally arrived! The truth is, the minute Torontonians feel a little warmth, we throw on our shorts and skirts and start soaking up every minute of that sunshine. In honour of all you summer worshipers, we have compiled a list of the top 5 summer activities in Toronto!
1. Toronto Island
Toronto Island is not just for the kiddies! Take the island fairy over and enjoy a leisurely bike ride, a day on the beach, or a game of frisbee. No matter what you choose to do, this day out is sure to be a welcome change of scenery.
2. Take In Some Good Eats
Known for its multicultural population, Toronto residents have access to food from all over the world, right in their own backyard. Summer is the best time to take advantage of this; whether you visit The Taste of The Danforth, try some fried food at the The Ex, hit up TO Food Fest, or dine at one of the city’s many international restaurants. Toronto provides ample opportunity for its residents to eat their way around the world.
3. Check Out A Show
Toronto has endless options when it comes to experiencing some amazing performances. Visit the Princess of Wales and relive the magic of Flashdance, or experience an outdoor concert at the Molson Amphitheatre. You can groove to your favourite DJ at Sugar Beach or enjoy a show at your local watering hole. There’s something for everyone!
4. Go for a Hike (or just a walk)
Being one of Canada’s largest cities, Toronto has a large amount of green space. Head to the outdoors and spend the day in High Park, walking the Don River Valley Trail or traveling along the belt line.
5. Discover a New Neighbourhood
As you may know, Toronto is comprised of many different and delightful ethnic pockets. Take this summer to explore the many neighbourhoods at your fingertips! Walk the streets of Little Italy, Greek Town, Kensington Market or China Town. You never know what you might discover.
Now what are you waiting for? Get out and enjoy this marvellous city while it’s hot!
