Holiday Season In Toronto

- by Lee Fancy

Toronto winters can be very pricey, fortunately, I have here are some great ideas that are fun and cheap to do in the city during the next few months. Whether you are looking for fun outside or inside , where the heat is on, you have many options

Go tobogganing
Not al city parks allow tobogganing, but there's still usually a action at  Christie Pits, Trinity Bellwood, High Park, Riverdale Park

Lace up your skates
Most rinks have scheduled times for different age groups, so check before you go. There’s also the skating rink at Nathan Phillips Square, and the Harbourfront Centre has DJ Skate Nights, where local DJs spin through a free skate.

Visit museums during discounted hours
There's plenty of ways to get culture in the city, and many of our museums offer free or discounted hours. From The Royal Ontario Museum (ROM),Art Gallery Of Ontario, there's other spots to get cultured also: The Bata Shoe Museum and The Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art.

Visit The Distillery District

The pedestrian-only historic village is a cool hang out year round with antique shops, cafes, galleries and more, but in the winter it becomes that much quainter with snow dusting the cobblestone streets.

See the festive lights around town
Cavalcade of Lights isn't just for the big tree in Nathan Phillips Square. Different neighbourhoods across Toronto decorate with festive lighting displays

Take in a movie
There are several theatres around town that offer cheaper movies: Rainbow Cinemas' three locations around town all have low prices with Tuesday films at only $5. If you’re looking for something a little more outside the box, the Lightbox has a free screen that plays experimental films.
