Even though the weather may be getting chillier it doesn't mean your date nights can't be hotter. In fact, there are tons of amazing places in Toronto for you to swoon your significant other. So whether you're looking to reignite an old flame, or turn up the heat on a romance with a new boo, I'm here for you.
With so much going on this holiday season I've put together a comprehensive list of the top places in the city that are the most romantic. Some of them are adventurous and some of them are delicious. Others? Totally off-the-wall.
See below for the top 12 that will totally give you that relationship goals status.
Skating at Natrel Rink
There is nothing more romantic than skating with your significant other, especially when you have the perfect view of the CN Tower. Make sure you check out the outdoor rink at the Harbourfront Centre Downtown for a skate and then enjoy some fresh hot chocolate just around the block. Head there on a Saturday night for their free DJ Skate Nights every week!
Make Your Own Candles in the Distillery District
Okay, so I discovered Yummi Candles when I was at the Toronto Christmas Market a few weeks ago and I am OBSESSED. Located right in the Distillery District, you can shop all of their hand-poured candles, or you and your partner can take a candle making class - how unique!
Get A Massive Hot Chocolate at this Toronto Cafe
Treat you and your significant other to the most amazing hot chocolate EVER this winter at StrangeLove Coffee. There are tons of different options to choose from with toppings that will blow your mind. Whether you're in the mood for cupcakes to spice up your hot drink or crushed candy cane, StrangeLove has got you covered!
Attend a Pottery Class and Make Matching Coffee Cups
I am not an artist, but I try. With that in mind, one of my favourite things to do with my partner is to be creative and try something new! The perfect place to but your significant other's creativity to the test is to take them to The Pottery just north of the Bloor West Village. Who knows, maybe you'll even go home with adorable matching mugs for your morning coffee?
Attend a Giant Maple Syrup Festival
There is nothing 'sweeter' than treating your boo to a trip to a Maple Sugar Festival. Starting on March 9th, Sugar Shack Toronto will be hosting their fourth annual sugar shack event where they'll be selling tons of fresh maple taffy! Other activities at the festival include an obstacle course and chainsaw ice-sculpting! How Canadian?
Visit Canada's LARGEST Indoor Obstacle Course
Put your significant other's strength and stamina to the test by visiting Pursuit OCR, Canada's massive indoor obstacle course! Located in Etobicoke, there are tons of activities designed for you to climb, jump, and pull! Also, it will be adorable to watch your partner try to complete the course and an EXCELLENT way to find out how competitive they are.
Attend the Harry Potter Yule Ball
First of all, I'm screaming and secondly, this is my dream date. On December 20th, take your significant other to live their best Harry Potter LIFE at the Pheonix Concert Theatre. This 19+ event will be serving up some magical cocktails and some musical entertainment. This is the perfect date for all those witches and wizards out there.
Drink and Paint a Masterpiece
Similar to the pottery classes there's literally nothing cuter than testing out your partner's creative skills. However, Toronto's Paint Cabin takes it to another level by adding drinking to the activity. Mix, mingle and paint at this adorable establishment in Toronto that will be sure to leave you with a beautiful canvas painted by your partner that you can put over your mantle.
Have a Staycation at the Thompson Hotel
The most romantic way to spend your winter with your significant other is with a nice staycation at Thompson Toronto! Not only is the hotel stunning with tons of beautiful rooms, but it also features a gorgeous rooftop bar that looks out on the CN Tower. The rooftop also features live music every Thursday, Friday and Saturday!
Treat Yourself to a Couples Treatment at Hammam Spa
The winter and holiday season can be stressful. It's often the most expensive time of the year, which is often spent on others. After all the hustle and bustle is done, there's nothing more romantic than a couples massage and day at the spa. Hammam Spa, located on King St. West, is a beautiful place to go and feel rejuvenated. Whether you're looking for a massage or facial, you won't be disappointed!
Go Rooftop at the Falcon SkyBar
One of the best and most romantic rooftop bars in the city is the Falcon SkyBar at HotelX. With stunning views, iconic cocktails, and delicious food you really can't go wrong. My partner and I love to go here for a drink on a romantic date night out. My personal fave? The Falcon Goddess Signature Cocktail.
