Toronto is a city with a million different sides to its personality. There are so many lively and creative people, making for a city bustling with activity. So, if you’re having trouble coming up with the next date night, or you want something new to do with the girls, Toronto can deliver.
Read on to find our top picks for things to do in Toronto.
A night at the casino
Remember that dress you’ve had no use for since you bought it? Create a use for it. If you’re someone who watched Casino Royale and decided you couldn’t afford a flight to Monte Carlo, but can instead head to one of Toronto’s casinos for a night out, then put on your ‘glad rags’ and head on downtown.
Tell the men they have to dig out their penguin suits, have a fancy dinner and spend the night on the roulette wheel and slots.
Of course, if you don’t fancy going to the casino for whatever reason, you can always visit the online casino while you’re in your hotel room or traveling the transit. Try one of the most trusted online casinos for Canadians here.
Supplement the night with a stay at a luxurious hotel and some fun in the spa and you’ve got yourself a luxurious staycation that you’ll never want to end.
Toronto’s drag crawl
Toronto has a long and storied history with drag – longer even than New York’s. When there is an enclave nicknamed The Gay Village, you know there is bound to be drag to go along with it.
There is no need, surely, to express how much fun a night of drag is. These are comedians, singers, dancers and every other type of live performer you can imagine. Take out a wad of ones and enjoy the lively atmosphere from the friendliest community in Toronto.
The number one spot for a drag show is the famed Crews and Tangos, where they serve juicy fruity cocktails while the performances play. The Gay Village is called Church and Wellesley Village to its mother and can’t be missed. Look out for all the rainbow street art. And speaking of which…
The free art gallery: the street
Toronto is absolutely rammed with murals and street art. Some of them are obvious and large, taking up entire buildings, and some are hiding on the back of electric boxes on the street or down small alleyways.
And then there is Graffiti Alley. Entire streets dedicated to vibrant and beautiful street art. You will feel dizzy with so much color around you.
If you want a date night that is part treasure hunt, part walk through the city, and part gallery visit, you can turn Toronto into the world’s biggest art gallery and trek through the city to spot the best and most hidden murals. There are routes found online, and you can explore your city, taking a closer look at the art around you – you might even find yourself getting inspired.
