5 Things to do Before Winter is Over

Winter in Toronto can be rough and miserable if you let it get the best of you, but you can get the best of it by enjoying what the city has to offer during these cold months. There are many things to do, so here are 5 Things to do Before Winter is Over. Enjoy!

Skating at Nathan Philips Square

There aren’t many cities that have the coolest skating rink in the city located at their city hall, but luckily enough, Toronto does. With the addition of the new Toronto sign at Nathan Philips Square, going for a skate at the city hall rink has become one of the most popular things to do around the city this winter. And if you haven’t had a chance to go yet, lace up your skates and get over there.

Visit a heated patio

Visiting patios in Toronto during the summer time is one of the best things to do in the city. The winter months usually take patios away, but there are a few patios across the city that become heated patios that allow them to be open during these cold months. There aren’t many of them, so when you find one, take advantage and have dinner outside in the winter.


Toronto has an abundance of restaurants, and many of them are high end, which most people can’t afford on a regular day. Luckily for us who didn’t win the $1.5 billion Powerball lottery, there is Winterlicious which provides 3-course meals at some of the city’s most popular restaurants for a fixed price. For two weeks you can experience some of the best cuisine the city has to offer for prices you won’t see again until Summerlicious.

Volunteer your time

Plenty of people volunteer during the holiday months, it is the time of giving and usually the busiest time for charities. We tend to sometimes forget that these charities run all year around and always need help. The winter time is busy as people less fortunate always need clothes to help them get through the rough Toronto winters. Check out your local charity, they could always use an extra pair of hands.

Winterfolk Music Festival

The Winterfolk Music Festival is an annual music festival that celebrates the music of piano, jazz, dance and much more. There is no shortage of events to check out and the best part of it all is that most of them are free to attend. This is a must-attend event for the music lovers, and it makes a perfect Valentine’s Day gift as the festival falls on the lovers weekend.
