The Holiday Season is the best time to bundle up and take part in some of the best winter activities the City has to offer. There are some great holiday traditions to take part of in the 6ix, so grab the mittened hand of your friends, family, girlfriend or boyfriend and head to the city!
Skating at Nathan Philip’s Square – Every year the Nathan Philip’s Square pond freezes over for a full season of skating in the middle of the city! One of the most romantic winter date nights in the heart of the city, right beside city hall. There’s skate rental and even a little restaurant and cafe, but there are also always lots of food trucks around for those late night winter treats! And it’s all just down the street from the beautiful Christmas windows at the Hudson’s Bay Company at the Toronto Eaton Centre.
Christmas Market in the Distillery District – This has got to be my favourite holiday putting that Toronto has to offer. The historic Christmas Market in the beautiful Distillery District! Enjoy warm drinks in the beer garden, the beautiful christmas lights, and try authentic european foods! Open everyday till 9pm from November 20-December 20! Nothing like some warm mulled wine and Christmas cheer as you wait for your ever-coveted table at the Mill Street Brewery!
Frost Fair at Fort York – On the weekend of December 5 and 6 from 10am till 5pm. Enjoy the 1812 historic Fort York and the unique heritage Christmas goods, greenery, military reproductions, games and crafts! A beautiful weekend in Toronto’s own little piece of history.
