Admire the Artwork at the Art Gallery of Ontario
The AGO is the bet art gallery in Toronto and while it’s usually pretty expensive to get into their top exhibits, the gallery is free Wednesday nights from 6pm-9pm.

High Tea at the Ritz Carlton
There’s nothing classier than indulging in an extravagant high tea event at the city’s fanciest hotel. Round up your best friends, or even treat your mom, and drink some delicious tea and enjoy delicate finger sandwiches and decadent desserts.
Have Dinner at the Canoe Restaurant
Canoe is one of the classiest restaurants in the entire city. Located on the 54th floor of the TD centre in the heart of downtown Toronto, you’ll enjoy sweeping views of the city while enjoying a deliciously unforgettable meal.
Drinks at the Thompson Rooftop Lounge
The Thompson hotel is my absolute favourite hotel to stay at in Toronto and the rooftop patio provides the most stunning views on the CN Tower and the Toronto skyline. The best part is that the rooftop patio is open to the public so you don’t have to worry about dropping $300 on a room for the night.

Go for a Skate on the Bentway Skate Trail
This skating trail opened up under the Gardiner Expressway this winter and the first couple weeks of March will probably be your last opportunity to have a skate before the spring rolls around!
Check out Trillium Park
March is the perfect time to visit the newly built Ontario Place park as the weather begins to warm up. This has quickly become one of my favourite spots in the city with its fire pit, picnic areas, walking trails, and sweeping views of the skyline.
Go for a Hike
The transition into springtime is the best time to check out some of the many beautiful hiking trails that the outskirts of the city have to offer. The weather will make for a nice and breezy hike so you won’t be too sticky and sweaty after.
