Your guide to winter in Toronto
The Toronto Christmas Market
Every year, the Distillery District’s Christmas Market brings in thousands of locals and tourists. Inspired by the old and influenced by the new, experience the holiday spirit at this charming European Christmas market with a cup of hot chocolate. Pro tip: purchase a ticket online to skip the lines.
Head to a game
Staying inside doesn’t have to be boring. Catch a Raptors or a Leafs game at Scotiabank Arena. Cheer along with hundreds of sports fans and stay warm indoors.
Visit Blue Mountain
This winter, head up to Blue Mountain—Ontario’s largest ski resort. With over 40 trails to choose from and a range of difficulty levels, you might want to stay a day or two to experience all that Blue Mountain has to offer. Don’t ski or snowboard? Try tobogganing or the Moutain Coaster.
Volley at the beach
Catch yourself reliving summer snaps on your phone? Head to Beach Blast to get your dose of Vitamin B—for beach. Keep your bumps, sets, and spikes in tune at this indoor beach volleyball court.
Nothing says winter like a cozy room, hot drinks, and board games. Grab your friends and visit Snakes and Lattes for a competitive round of Catan, Life, Monopoly, and more! Hungry after a few games of Hedbanz? Snakes and Lattes also boasts a menu of classic bar foods.
