Happy Birthday to the greatest city in the world! You are now a true, north strong 181 years old! In celebration of such a special birthday I’ve composed a list of my 5 FREE and FUN favorite places in Toronto that make me HAPPY…yes it’s almost spring…hard to believe I know..
#1) Centre Island!
Hop on the Ferry and enjoy a beautiful picnic underneath an oak tree while taking in one of the most spectacular views of the city! You can rent a bike, lay on the sand for a “beach experience” or even visit the little petting zoo on site!
#2) High Park
Once you begin strolling through HighPark you will feel like you’ve been transported onto the set of Finding Neverland…minus Johnny Depp..
Perfectly bedded flowers, a beautiful lake and fun offbeat tracks lend itself to a perfect afternoon.
#3) The Distillery District
Walk the cobblestone streets, hit up a brewery…then try to walk the cobblestone streets again! Kidding – but I will say the Distillery District is incredible for delicious restaurants, unique shops and a feeling like you’re walking through old Montreal!
#4) The Evergreen Brickworks
This place is sort of a hidden gem! I go to Brickworks about 5 times a year and going in the Spring time is incredible! Head down and grab an organic coffee and freshly baked treat from their quality bakery then head out on a spectacular walk through the hills. Tip: Every Saturday and Sunday there’s a famers market!
#5) St. Lawrence Market
Grab a world famous peameal bacon sandwich and roam the market on a Saturday afternoon. This place is awesome! You can find fantastic fresh food and have a exhilarating experience at the same time!
