Toronto is a city that is constantly moving and is full of people that are always up and out doing exciting and exhilarating things. While that can definitely be fun, if you are more of a grandma than a young adult it probably doesn't take too many exhilarating nights out for you to start passing on plans to chill out and just binge watch Netflix.

Though, just because you secretly are a grandma doesn't mean you need to hole yourself up in your house! There are tons of different things to do in the city that involve a more chilled out and relaxed atmosphere and vibe, perfect if you are looking for a break from the loud and fast-paced nature of the city! So instead of waiting for the new Stranger Things season to come out, grab your fellow grandma friends and check out these things to do in the city!
