You've got yourself an upcoming date with someone special, and now you've got the chance to make an impression. Preparing for a date can be nerve-wracking, but what we suggest this month is "Why not be a tourist in your own town?" We've got you covered so you won't be asking yourself and your friends the dreaded question of "Where the heck should I take her?" Putting some thought into the date will score you some huge points – we guarantee. Here are our fun suggestions for "touristy type date activities" in our great city of Toronto. If you aren't from the Toronto area, not to worry we will be featuring many cities in the near future.
- Harbourfront has some amazing theatrical performances running at many different times. It could be great to check these out as well as the many free festivals and food stands featuring flavours from around the globe. You can also find galleries, quaint cafes, and live musical performances. This is a great way to interact with each other and possibly save a few pennies that you can then use for a cocktail or a light dinner afterwards.
- CN Tower has the WOW factor and will certainly get the palms sweating and the heart pumping as you ascend the world's tallest building and take in the incredible panoramic view of the city's skyline. This is a great date as the sun rises or sets. It can be very romantic and spectacular.
- Canada's Wonderland can be a great date venue as it will definitely bring out the inner child in you and get the adrenaline pumping. It can help you step outside your comfort zone and be a free spirit for the day. You can unwind and bring the heart rate back down by seeing a performance or enjoying lunch and a cocktail as you relax and discuss your fun day together.
- Toronto Islands is a beautiful spot during the day. Take the ferry across, rent some bikes and go for a spin around the island. You can either bring a picnic with you or enjoy lunch at one of the island's eateries. Having a view of the city while aboard a ferry is super romantic!
- Distillery District has just recently in the past few years become one of the most romantic places to go in the City. It is also the first pedestrian only village and considered a national historical site. You can find Jazz festivals, wineries, galleries, amazing restaurants as well as, Victorian architecture. This has enough to keep you talking on your date, while you pop in and out of stores and galleries. There are places to stop for a meal or appetizers and a cocktail.
