Trip Ideas & Itineraries for Couples
Whether you’re looking for a unique date idea, an exceptional live performance or major league excitement, Toronto is your place. There’s enough to experience, groove to and savour in the city to suit just about everyone.
Five date night ideas in Toronto
1. Go live
Seven nights a week, and some afternoons too, live music can be heard all around Toronto. Roots music at The Dakota Tavern, swingy jazz at The Reservoir or Latin at Lula are just some of the myriad options at intimate, affordable venues.
2. Play on the edge
Axe throwing, knife throwing, dart throwing – these are just a few of the games people play in Toronto. For an even bigger thrill, try walking on the edge on the CN Tower 116 stories up. Be sure to look down.
3. Enjoy a spectacular meal
4. Have a big league encounter
Toronto is home to multiple professional sports teams, all with downtown venues. That means on any given day throughout the year you have the option of having a thrilling major league experience right in the heart of the city.
5. Get outdoors
A quick ferry ride from downtown at the foot of Bay Street over to Ward’s Island will reward you with one of the most stunning views of the Toronto skyline. In the warmer months, stay for meal at the quaint, Island Café and stroll the boardwalk that overlooks Lake Ontario. Here during the winter? Go for a skate lakeside at scenic Harbourfront or go urban at iconic Nathan Phillips Square.
