8 Things To Do This Winter In Toronto

Summertime is my favourite time of the year. I love going to the beach, drinking on patios, and enjoying the warm sun of my face. But, instead of waiting around for summer I still like to make the best of every season. So let’s find out what you can do this winter in Toronto!

8 Things To Do This Winter In Toronto:

1. Go to a food/drink festival:

There are lots of food/drink festivals during the winter months (January- March). I love going to festivals all year round. Here are some festivals that are coming up!

Winterlicious: January 26- February 8 (I am going to Casa Loma High Tea)

Toronto Tea Festival– February 2-4

Toronto Winter Brewfest– March 2-3 (I can’t wait!)

2. Go to a comedy show:

Again, this is something that you can do all year round but its perfect to do during the winter months. During the winter, everybody could use some extra humour. I like going to Yuk Yuks or Second City. This is also a great date night idea.

3. Go to a brewery or wine bar:

Even though this is something that you might like to do in the summer months; a lot of breweries and wineries have indoor seating where you can go and have drinks & food. This is definitely something that makes winter weekends more bearable for me! There are tons of places in Toronto that you can go to, such as the newly opened Craft Beer Market, Steamwhistle Brewery, Mill Street Brewery, or the Bier Market to name a few. Just do a quick search on google and you will find a lot more awesome places!

4. Go to a Spa:

Going to a spa in the winter is one of the best feelings. There are tons of beautiful (and expensive) spas in Toronto if you are willing to splurge. This could be a fantastic date idea for a special weekend or anniversary.

Popular Toronto Spas: Elmwood, Body Blitz, Four Seasons, and Sweetgrass.

5. Go to an Arcade Bar:

In the last few years, more and more arcade bars have opened up in Toronto. Arcade bars are great places to go with friends during the winter months. You can have fun, drink, and stay warm all at the same time.

A few arcade bars (that I like and have been to) in Toronto are: Tilt, Get Well, Nightowl, and the Rec Room.

6. Go Dog Sledding:

Okay, so I have never actually done this but c’mon what could be more fun!?! This is on my list of winter activities to do for sure! Keep your eye out on “Groupon” for some cheap deals for this fun excursion.

7. Go to an Escape Room/ Axe Throwing:

These are 2 fun activities that I have tried out before. They are both great date night ideas or activities that you can do with friends on the weekend. You can look up locations that are closest to you!

8. Go on a Weekend Getaway:

I know this isn’t in Toronto but why not leave the city and visit a new town/city. If you want to leave the province but still be able to drive there then Montreal is a beautiful place to visit. If you want to stay close-by, then Blue Mountain is a great option! You can spend the weekend exploring, doing winter activities, and trying out new restaurants.

So those are 8 things that you can do this winter in Toronto. I hope that you enjoyed it. Let me know what you like to do during the winter.


Ps. I made sure not to include “skating” on my list. You’re welcome.
