Date Night: Romantic Things to Do in Toronto

Although Toronto’s reputation for romance isn’t as large as other cities: it’s an incredibly romantic place to plan a date or a getaway.

Of course, you don’t have to be in the town for a whole weekend to enjoy some of these perks, you can get away for just a couple of hours, but you should try some of these amazing attractions.

Take a Beachside Stroll on the Toronto Islands

If you aren’t from the area, you may be surprised to learn that Toronto has some gorgeous beaches and islands open to the public!  These islands offer endless white sand, beautiful rolling waves, and incredible summertime fun you’d only expect to see on the coasts.  

A fantastic date idea for any couple is to pack a picnic and visit the islands!  You can dine on the sandy shores, hold hands while you stroll the beach, and watch the most beautiful sunset you’ll find in Canada.  This is the ideal location for a first, or a hundredth, date: and is the perfect romantic setting.  

Enjoy the Beyond Kensington Market Toronto Food Tour

The Beyond Kensington Market Toronto Food Tour is a Toronto tour that allows you to try the best food in the many different neighborhoods of the city.  You can enjoy walking and learning about the area and everything it has to offer while also getting a chance to take in some of the most delicious food you’ll ever try.

This tour gives you the chance to try the Toronto Truffle, amazing food that’s only available through this tour, and other dishes ranging from Mexican, Caribbean, Portuguese and Canadian foods.  You can explore these new flavors together, and what’s more romantic than that?

Hold Hands in Toronto’s Gorgeous Museums

Toronto has countless museums for everything from space travel to art, so there’s something here for every couple.  Whether you’re new to the area or you’ve never had the time to stop in and check out these museums, you’ll enjoy everything they have to offer.  You can sign up for an audio tour so that it’s just the two of you with headphones on and hold hands as you walk amongst the art or historical pieces.  

Learning together and taking in an experience like this is a fantastic way to ensure that you’ll feel closer- and this will allow you to enjoy comfortable silence together.  Although this might not be fun for every couple, it’s a great way to learn more about each other while you learn about the world around you.

Shop and Cook Together With Fresh Produce from Farmers’ Markets

It’s no secret that everything from restaurants to real estate in Toronto is expensive: so save some money by cooking together!  Have a farmers’ market date where you pick up fresh food together, and when you get home, cook it together.

Not only is this a fun way to make something together, but it’s also a great way to support the local farmers and get to try food that you may not have tried before!
