Just because we may be feeling some March 2020 nostalgia right now doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the last few days leading up to the holidays! Although it’s important to respect social distancing and the newly implemented restrictions, we don’t have to isolate at home (yet *sigh*) so let’s make the most of the next few days. Toronto does a lot of things well and holiday vibes are certainly one of those things. We’ve rounded up some things to do before Christmas in Toronto that don’t involve any breaches to the current restrictions.

Here are Some Things to do Before Christmas in Toronto
You can’t call yourself a Torontonian, let alone a Canadian, without throwing on a pair of skates and skating around one of the city’s rinks. You can head to the harbourfront, Union or Nathan Phillips Square, just to name a few, and have a Hallmark movie moment of your own in our beautiful city!
Go on a Walk at the Harbour
Grab a beavertail or two and stroll down the harbour at night! You’ll have a great view of the CN Tower and the city and can soak in all the holiday vibes. If it snows this week this walk is a very pretty option.
Search for Epic Christmas Lights
Let your inner child run loose a bit and go hunting for epic Christmas lights! If you have a car you can drive around some of Toronto’s different neighbourhoods or you can even explore by foot!
Visit the Winter Village
You may not be able to spend the night drinking at the market but that doesn’t make the huge tree or the ambiance any less special. The Winter Village is one of Toronto’s many pleasures and a must visit this week.
Enjoy a Warm Drink
Head to your favourite local coffee shop with a friend or a good book and enjoy a warm drink. Holiday music will likely be playing which will definitely set the mood.
Have a Holiday Movie Night
If you’re not looking to go out, have yourself a holiday movie night at home! Pop some popcorn, make some hot chocolate and indulge in holiday classic or two!
