Home to a variety of cultural neighbourhoods, awe-inspiring architecture, bustling bars/restaurants, magnificent shopping and of course, the Toronto Maple Leafs, this Christmas we visited this cosmopolitan city and discovered its hidden secrets. Although the city is fully prepared for the winter seasons, we embraced the below freezing temperatures and explored the urban snow-covered streets. From the breathtaking collections of art in the Art Gallery of Ontario in Chinatown, to the amazing Christmas markets in the Distillery, we decided to venture downtown and ice skated under the famous Bentway Trail; a one kilometre rink under the Gardiner Expressway overpass — it was truly fascinating, and free if you bring your own skates! If cosying up indoors is more your thing, grab a blanket and sit by the fireplace in the literary-themed cocktail bar, Famous Last Words, located in the Junction neighbourhood, and indulge in the clever-crafted cocktails alongside over 50 books to choose from! Whatever the temperature in Toronto, you’re never short of anything to do.

Handy tip: Remember that they don’t add tax to their prices, so don’t be shocked if whatever you buy is slightly more expensive than you thought!
