Toronto is a force to be reckoned with in the summer as everything gets amped up. Lean into spontaneity and a renewed sense of curiosity. There’s more time for connecting as you journey from Adventure A to Adventure B — and stumble upon Adventure C. From parks and pools to patios and Pride, you’re sure to find something that will get you in the summer spirit in Toronto. 

Explore vibrant neighbourhoods

As one of the most diverse cities in the world, Toronto has over 140 neighbourhoods, each with its own unique style and vibe. Spend the summer ‘hood-hopping, and you’ll never get bored. If you're local, book a staycation in a different part of the city to really feel like you’re somewhere else in the world.

Outdoor activities

Summer in Toronto is meant to be spent outside. Explore the great outdoors at one of Toronto’s beloved beaches, unique green spaces, or peaceful parks and playgrounds. Pick your favourite way to soak up the sun and have some physically distanced fun!
