18 Things You Gotta Do This Spring In Toronto

Warm weather is just around the corner!

This past week in Toronto we've had insanely good weather for the end of February. If you think back to this time last year you'll probably remember -20 degree winds, piles of snow and slippery streets haunting your memories. 

But this February we've been blessed with amazingly warm weather leading us into the Spring months! Spring is just around the corner and while we don't want to jinx it just yet, it looks like it might be arriving early this year. 

Spring in Toronto is one of the best times of the year. There's tons of outdoor events from street fairs, to flea markets, to music festivals. The entire city becomes alive again including the nature, which should be at the top of your Spring list!

Take a walk through High Park to see the stunning Cherry Blossoms. 

When Spring rolls around, everyone in Toronto knows the spot to hit up is High Park. Around late April to early May is the best time to see the bright pink blooms of the stunning Cherry Blossoms that envelope the park!

Shop around for some vintage items at the Leslieville Flea Market

The Leslieville Flea Market is one of my favourite Spring/Summer activities because it's probably one of the best outdoor markets in the city! They mostly start in June but they do have events in April as well.

Enjoy a sunny lunch on the Broadview Hotel rooftop patio. 

The recently opened Broadview Hotel is probably one of the most gorgeous spots for a meal in the city. Once the Spring rolls around they'll open the patio section up again and you'll have sunny views of the city skyline for 360 degrees!

Watch the beginning of the Blue Jays season under the dome. 

I think almost all Torontonians who love baseball or at least have pride for our home teams are getting excited for the start of the Blue Jays season. The Jays have 4 home games at the start of April to kick off the season and more throughout the month.
