Toronto still has lots of great views, fun activities, and tasty food to offer, no matter what the temperature.
There are few downtown spots better to see seasonal colours than the Evergreen Brick
Works. Take a hike along the Lookout Path for a perfect view of the Don Valley—and the Toronto skyline in the distance. 550 Bayview Ave., evergreen.ca
After your hike, warm up in front of the fireplace at C’est What, one of the homiest bars in the city, located in the stone basement of a 19th-century building. Enjoy comfort food like butter chicken poutine, or try one of the dozens of Canadian beers on tap. 67 Front St. E., cestwhat.com
Get back outside and do some twirls under the Toronto sign at the Nathan
Phillips Square ice rink.
Skates are available to rent on-site, and there’s a concession stand serving hot drinks. You’ll also get a close-up view of the iconic city hall. 100 Queen St. W., www1.toronto.ca
Enjoy a cup of seasonal punch—rum, rye, Amontillado sherry, falerhum and a mixture of fruit juices, served in a teacup— at the Maple Leaf Tavern. You might even find yourself tempted to stay for dinner once you see a homemade burger or grilled trout come out of the kitchen. 955 Gerard St. E., mapleleaftavern.ca
Grab a latern and join a Haunted Walk tour of the Distillery District. The former home of Gooderham & Worts distillery is known as one of the spookiest spots in the city! Departs from 30 Gristmill Ln., hauntedwalk.com
