Fall is a fabulous season in which to enjoy a trip to the city of Toronto, although it’s also a good idea to plan out your activities ahead of time to avoid disappointment and to make sure that you don’t miss anything amazing off your schedule.
To help you have the best time possible, here are just a few of the top things to do and see in Toronto as the autumn takes centre stage.
Visit the AGO
The Art Gallery of Ontario is one of Toronto’s top cultural hotspots and there are a number of intriguing exhibitions running this fall, including ones focusing on the Art of Magic, the photography of Diane Arbus and the first North American showing of Haegue Yang’s sculptures.
The benefit of hitting up the AGO at the moment is that you can easily book tickets online and get a time-specific slot, which means that there is no need to worry about queuing. Of course if you do find yourself having to stand in line for any reason, you can always keep yourself entertained by playing online games on sites like Casumo.
Explore the Albion Hills
Fall in Toronto is best experienced not just in the city itself, but also with trips out to the jaw-dropping natural areas which can be reached from it. The Albion Hills Conservation Park is perfect at this time of year, as the heat of the summer has subsided and the frosts and snows of winter have yet to arrive, meaning you can explore without being hindered by the weather.
From cycling to hiking, this conservation area offers ample opportunities for physical activity, although you can also just head out there to take in the scenery and perhaps camp overnight to get the full great outdoors experience.
Catch a show at CityView Drive-In
Enjoying entertainment in a safe and comfortable environment has never been simpler thanks to the creation of CityView Drive-In, an outdoor venue where audience members can simply pull up in their cars and chill out in front of the best artists and acts around.
This fall there are a number of events planned, including regular comedy nights organized by the team behind the world-famous Just for Laughs festival, as well as musical performances and many more besides. Tickets go quick, so advanced booking is essential for this kind of event if it sounds appealing to you.
Experience a trivia-based escape room
If you are looking for an evening out with a difference, heading to escape rooms in Toronto will tick all the boxes. You will need to work with teammates to tackle a variety of challenges and get away clean, and escape rooms are definitely geared towards people who enjoy cerebral challenges, so if this gels with your social circle then you will be in for a treat.
Be sure to book in advance and keep an eye on availability, as these experiences can sell out quickly and the operators are also responding to changing circumstances at the moment, which is why vigilance on the part of customers is important.
Go wildlife-watching at the zoo
Toronto Zoo is always a great day out for couples and families alike, so whoever you’re with, it is worth adding it to your itinerary.
From seasonally-specific activities such as the Halloween-themed Boo at the Zoo event to year-round animal experiences, there is something for everyone. Seeing amazing animals from around the world in an attractive setting is always incredible in its own right, and it should round off a fun trip to Toronto.
