Though I may complain about the crappy weather in Toronto, the winter often brings a slew of fun festive winter things you can do in the city during the holiday season. Below is a list of fun things to do in Toronto this holiday season:
- Christmas Market- Toronto’s annual Christmas market is back in the Distillery District this year. If you plan to go to the Christmas Market, I would recommend going during the week and before 5 pm if possible. The Christmas Market is a favorite amongst Torontonian’s and gets very busy during the holiday season. Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin even made an appearance this year! This magical attraction puts me in the holiday spirit and gets me excited for Christmas. It’s the perfect place for a date or just a fun night out with your closest friends and family. Give the hot chocolate and malt wine a try!
- Waterfront Winter Wonderland- Ontario place has been transformed into a winter wonderland complete with a skating rink, light show and tons of Christmas cheer this year. This free winter festival is Toronto’s new destination for winter activities, and I can’t wait to check it out because who doesn’t love free shit.
- The Fairmont Royal York Holiday Windows- For those of you who have been following my blog for many years, you probably know that the Fairmont Royal York is my second home in Toronto. Each year the hotel transforms the property into a magical holiday spectacle complete with holiday windows on Front Street and a Santa meet and greet.
- Casa Loma- The famous Toronto castle is being transformed into a scene from the Nutcracker this year. You can visit Santa inside the castle, enjoy a magical light show, and explore the castle’s Christmas market. Casa Loma brings back so many memories of my childhood and moving to Ontario, so I’ll make any excuse to head to this property again.
- The Nutcracker- The National Ballet of Canada brings this holiday classic to life at the Four Seasons Centre for Performing Arts in the heart of Toronto each year. I look forward to watching the Nutcracker every year with my family. Going to see this classic tale has become one of my family’s holiday traditions. I won’t be seeing the ballet in Toronto this year, but luckily I’ll still be able to see the show in New York City after Christmas.
