Unique Winter Date Ideas in Toronto
When it gets cold outside many Torontonians want to stay in and hibernate but if you’re in a relationship, winter has many opportunities for fun and romance. These winter date ideas in Toronto are suitable for any pair, young and old and for any budget.
Toronto Christmas Market
The Distillery District holds its annual Christmas Market and this is the perfect opportunity for couples to feel like they’re in Toronto years ago. Holding hands while browsing for gifts on cobblestoned paths, under the illumination of the Christmas lights is a sure way to fire up any couple’s love for one another. Share a drink at the beer garden and don’t forget to walk under the mistletoe.
Board Game Cafe
New couples will find this a great way to get to know each other, and established pairs will find board game cafes to be a fresh alternative to going to the pub.
Ice Skating and Dancing
Ice skating with your sweetheart may seem cliché but in Toronto partners can skate at Harbourfront to the sounds of a live DJ playing great music every Saturday night from 8pm-11pm.
Go to Lula Lounge
Lula Lounge is legendary for providing a venue that includes dinner, live music and dancing and this can include a dance lesson, especially on Salsa Saturdays where you can get a free salsa lesson and use your newfound moves to dance the night away with your love.
Comedy at Bad Dog Theatre
Everyone loves to laugh and going to a comedy show is a great escape from a cold night. Tickets for any show is less than $15 so whether the couple prefers stand up comedy or improv, this theatre will deliver a fun and funny evening.
Casa Loma is one of the most underrated tourist attractions in Toronto. This is a truly unique place to visit. The Escape Series at Casa Loma takes players on an adventure. In the game Bootleggers you visit a secret tunnel underground the city and visit a speakeasy from the 1920’s. This is truly an escape from winter.
The Sultan’s Tent
The Sultan’s Tent offers a decadent dining experience from Morocco. The restaurant is decorated for getting cozy with your date and features belly dancers and French-Moroccan cuisine. If you can get a reservation, they have an excellent Winterlicious menu.
Visit Ripley’s Aquarium
You and your date can escape the cold weather in Ripley’s Aquarium where you will be greeted by humidity and gorgeous seascapes. The low lighting and peaceful view can be very romantic.
