Grab A Cone From Summer's Ice Cream

There are plenty of places to get ice cream in the city, but this shop has the word summer in it, so you obviously have to visit this place before the season officially ends.

Get Something Fresh From The Leslieville Farmers Market

@jchan21embedded via  

If the Leslieville Farmers Market wasn’t a seasonal event, then it would probably put every restaurant out of business. Go check it out before the end of it’s annual run.

Attend A Concert At The Budweiser Stage

@naomidasilvaembedded via  

I’m not going to lie, it hurt me a little writing Budweiser Stage instead of the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre, but regardless; this place is still the best concert venue in Toronto. A seasonal venue due to its outdoor stage, a summer in Toronto is never complete without attending a concert here.

Goat Yoga At Black Creek Pioneer Village

Yoga is cool and all, but have you ever tried goat yoga? Yeah, me neither. But we still have time to get this done before the summer ends.

Read A Book At The Rooster Coffee House Patio

Rooster Coffee House is known for it’s coffee, but their views of Riverdale Park make for the perfect place to read a book on their outdoor patio.

Grab A Drink At The Porch

@laurensmaembedded via  

The Porch is honestly the ultimate milestone of a millennial's Toronto experience. Sometimes I think people visit the city just so they can get those infamous patio photos with the CN tower in the back. Thing is, I’m one of those people. And you probably are, too.

Attend A Performance Of Shakespeare In High Park

@sheilamcelreaembedded via  

If you’re a little classier than the rowdy crowd at Budweiser Stage, then consider replacing your concert experience with Shakespeare in High Park. For the rest of the 2018 season, you can go catch a performance of “Romeo and Juliet” or “A Midsummer Night’s Dream."

Take A Hike Through Crothers Woods

@generaljingembedded via  

Crothers Woods is a beautiful scenic route, and while it can get even prettier during autumn, enjoying it in the summer ain’t so bad, either.

Win Something At The CNE

@summersongxoembedded via  

An 18-day festival, The Canadian National Exhibition is one of those events where everyone stops what they’re doing so they're able to attend. But the food and rides aren’t the only draw-in; since winning a prize at the CNE is just as satisfying.

Spend The Afternoon At Sugar Beach

@siyakhannaembedded via  

We love beaches, but a beach with stunning blue water, white sand and pink umbrellas?! Yes please.

Website
