Summer in the City - Where to go and What to do.

Biking along Lakeshore

If you’re looking to get some exercise, tour the city and enjoy the weather, rent a city bike and take a leisurely ride along the Lakeshore. Enjoy the weather and the views!

Lunch in the park @ Trinity Bellwoods

If you’re looking to have a causal day outside your house, but not looking to do something extreme or expensive, take a trip to Trinity Bellwoods park. Pack a lunch and some drinks or grab something to-go along Queen St. and spend the day relaxing and enjoying the weather.

Walk on the beach @ Ashbridges Bay

Visit Toronto’s Beaches, aka Lake Ontario, and walk along Ashbridges Bay. The beach itself has a few food options, and is home to the Toronto Beach Club restaurant (if you’re looking for a fancier dinner spot). Otherwise, take a stroll along Queen St. and grab an ice cream at Ed’s Real Scoop, or even rent a bike and ride along the bike path by the beach.

CNE Toronto

The CNE is also back this summer for the first time since the pandemic, and we couldn’t be more excited. It is definitely a must visit, simply just for the vibes. Running from August 19th to September 5th, the options are endless. Take a trip to the casino, watch the horse capades, live music, visit the food building and try something you’ve never even heard of, play a few games, ride a few rides, and SO SO much more.

Patio Hopping (Baro, Oretta, Bellwoods Brewery, Paris Paris)

If you’re a foodie, spend the day patio hopping. Pick a street (King St W, Queen St, College St, or Ossington, just to name a few) and spend an hour grabbing an app or a drink at a few different patios with some friends. This way, you can bang off multiple bucket list restaurants in one day, while also having a great time! Some of our personal favourite patios this summer are: Baro, Oretta, Bellwoods Brewery, Paris Paris and Hemingways.

Kensington Market (Taco’s, Thrifting)

Kensington is a Toronto staple. It's the most vibrant and diverse neighbourhood, with endless options of things to do, at any time of day.

You can shop through some vintage stores, grab a quick bite at a few of the tons of different shops, or even sit down and have a nice meal at one of the restaurants. Then relax in the park, grocery shop for some fresh produce, meat and cheese, explore and appreciate the shops and art everywhere and so much more!

 

Ferry to Toronto Island

Looking to get on a boat, but don’t actually own a boat? Simply take the ferry to the Toronto Islands. The Islands consist of four islands with walking trails, events, beaches and rides. Definitely the place to go if you feel like being a tourist in your own city.
